Seems like Big East football fans pay more attention to signings than any other area of the country. I wonder why?
Arrrgh, TN just lost receiver Marlon Brown to Ohio State. This is looking like a bad day for me already.
That was driven much more by the press than by the fans.
I enjoy following it. Maybe it's based on locality? There's a lot of local High Schools in the Cleveland area that the Buckeye's tend to target ie: Glenville, St. Ignatius, St. Ed's, etc.... Maybe since us local Ohioans are familiar with the in-state recruits, it makes it more exciting and meaningful for us.
Troy Smith, Ted Ginn Jr, Brian Robiskie, Beanie Wells, all from Cleveland/surrounding area high schools.
Link? If true, this is great news! I heard Marlon was debating between Tennessee, Florida, Georgia and tOSU! I'm glad the 6'5" four star receiver chose us! Yippeee!!

I hate to lose this kid. I think he is going to be a good one.
Jim Tressel has added Cleveland's own, Marcus Hall to his list of commitments to the 2009 team. Ranked sixth overall at Rivals.com, Hall brings a huge 300-lb frame that recorded 86 pancake blocks as a high school senior.
