    Re: Youngstown St. off season

    No extension yet. There are rumors locally about the KSU job. My guess is he stays as he still has kids going to his local alma mater and he has all the money he needs. But the coaches like one another, so you never know.

    How can he be an Ohio player of the year and only have offers other than Youngstown State be:
    Fordham
    Cornell
    Dartmouth
    Robert Morris

    Not even 1 MAC offer, and trust me some of them need QBs. I understand some guys fall through the cracks in recruiting but when you are supposedly an all state player that usually doesn't happen. Color me not impressed.

    Re: Youngstown St. off season

    Does YSU still have the commitment(from August) of OLB Gianni Rizzo? That looked like a good get as he had about 15 offers.

    Re: Youngstown St. off season

    Rizzo is still on board. His Norwin, Pa. h.s. Teammate Thrift also remains on board after offers from WVU, Pitt, Syracuse, Indiana and a dozen other schools.

    The QB Waid was the Ohio Division IV O. Player of the year as a Jr. Twice first team All State. Feel. Free to think what you want, the kid is a player. Ohio has 7 divisions with D-I being the biggest. His team played in the State Championship game vs Cincinnati Wyoming who had the D-IV Player of the Year QB this year as a Jr. Senior year stats - 4300+ passing yds, over 40 passing TDs, 65% passing completions, 9 INT and 1770 rushing yds and 17 TDs. I believe those numbers are less than his Jr. year. He will play at YSU at some point.

    P.S. As to MAC recruiting, what I see is many are recruiting Jucos, Calif,Fla and Tex. Players. I’m surprised as well but YSU ( 2 Miles from his school) was late to the chase as well.

    He had multiple P5 offers. I wasn't sure what the bait was to commit to SUCC. Cocaine and prostitutes? Ray Isaac's old car?

    Re: Youngstown St. off season

    I hear he is undecided but could be old leader Pitt or WVU or Syracuse. Dark horse is Ohio U.

    It may well be another stinker class coming in. Bozo hates recruiting. We will know soon.

    Re: Youngstown St. off season

    Thrift signs with WVU. YSU was off to a poor start with 8 signees, including a LS. No Jucos so far, nor transfers. H.S. Players signed include 2 DTs, 2 DBs, a LB, a LS, a WR and a QB. Best get is the QB, AllOhio Mark Waid. One Fla. player. Not impressive at all. No help for the OL. Bozo apparently strikes out again.

    Finally..... YSU adds Juco OL Jordan Velez, 6’4, 315. That’s a start, but need more OL.

    Finally YSU adds another WR and a Slot. Good athletes but still have not done enough to address OL. Charleston at the Slot got votes for Ohio Mr. Football after scoring 51 TDs his senior year. The WR lead his team to a Pa. state title.
