  The Effects of USC and UCLA Joining the Big10
Posted by: Steve - 07-07-2022, 10:26 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4883f9258c1f_DA6A-Big10USCUCLA_2.png"><img width="244" height="244" title="Big10USCUCLA" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="Big10USCUCLA" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4883f9258c1f_DA6A-Big10USCUCLA_thumb.png" border="0"></a></p><p>The NCAA has schools split up into conferences that determine standings, bracket position, and whole lot of cash. Historically, conferences have made up their membership based on regional location. However, in the last decade or so, we've seen conferences shifting and deals being made to support performance and financial sustainability. USC and UCLA have been members of the <a href="https://pac-12.com/" target="_blank">PAC 12 conference</a> since the 1920's. They've been a staple of the conference that also includes Western-based universities like Stanford, Arizona State, and the University of Utah. In 2024, USC and UCLA will leaving the PAC 12 and joining the BIG 10, which is made up of mostly mid-Western states with hard-hitting reputations in the world of college sports. We're talking about Michigan, Nebraska, and <a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">Ohio State</a>. The BIG 10 is currently comprised of 14 teams, so these two California teams will make the BIG 10, in reality, the BIG 16. The consequences for the PAC 12 could be detrimental, while the acquisition for the BIG 10 could be considered somewhat of an NCAA monopoly.</p> <p>Historically, three states produce the most professional football players that go on to play in the NFL: Florida, Texas, and California. There are also more NBA players from California than any other state. Naturally, anyone looking for the next big football or basketball star would start the search in California. By USC leaving the PAC 12 and going to the BIG 10, they take with them a very large football fan base into the mid-west. The same is true for the UCLA basketball program, being consistently one of the top five teams in NCAA basketball year after year. With them moving to the BIG 10, USC and UCLA are providing the conference with an astronomical amount of fans committed to watching their favorite teams during the season. More viewers means higher ratings, and higher ratings means more money for anyone wanting a commercial spot on TV or advertisement space in the programs. More viewers also means higher ticket and merchandise prices along with the fans willing to pay them. This also means that the BIG 10 has a funnel into some of the top athletes having their eye on the NFL and NBA, boosting the BIG 10's reputation for producing professional athletes. The NCAA is a big business and the BIG 10 is playing the money game.</p> <h2>Damage to the Pac 12</h2><p>The most damage from this new shift in conference membership will be done in the PAC 12. The PAC 12 conference has some great university talent, but with them being in smaller populated states and smaller viewing markets, the impact of this move will take away a large chunk of the PAC 12's fan base, viewing numbers, and ultimately, it's ratings. The financial consequences of losing USC and UCLA to another conference will force the PAC 12 to be creative in it's recruiting strategies, marketing techniques, and how they keep their teams in the top of the ranks. They'll need to adapt and adjust quickly to ensure quality coaching, athlete commitment, and fan commitment can not only stay consistent, but simply just keep up with what the BIG 10 will be taking from them.</p> <iframe width="917" height="516" title="THE HERD | Colin Cowherd " src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LgaLaSt_ivA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" 2024"="" in="" ten="" big="" for="" pac-12="" leaving="" ucla="" and="" usc="" shocked"=""></iframe> <h3>THE HERD | Colin Cowherd "SHOCKED" USC and UCLA leaving Pac-12 for Big Ten in 2024</h3><div class="feedflare">

  2023 Wide Receiver Carnell Tate from IMG Academy
Posted by: Steve - 06-04-2022, 12:08 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-58ffc1c6c33c_B792-CarnellTate_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="334" title="CarnellTate" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="CarnellTate" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-58ffc1c6c33c_B792-CarnellTate_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>The Carnell Tate saga is about to come to an end. The four-star wide receiver has whittled down his list of scholarship offers to four schools (LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Tennessee) and is nearing a decision on where he'll play <a href="https://brutusreport.com" target="_blank">college ball</a>.</p> <p>Tate from <a href="https://www.imgacademy.com/" target="_blank">IMG Academy</a> Bradenton Florida. A tall receiver at 6'2", 185 lbs., with long arms and big hands. He Creates separation, body control, has experience playing inside and outside. Tate has a big frame and long strides that allow him to stretch the field vertically. He has elite speed with excellent quickness and body control. Tate will run by defenders on deep routes but also shows the ability to make tough catches down the sideline in traffic. Tate will be an immediate impact player at the next level.</p> <p>Tate (<a href="https://twitter.com/carnelltate_" target="_blank">twitter</a>) said he’s looking for a school that offers great coaching, something that Ohio State has because of the new offensive system being installed by <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3091/ryan-day-announces-2021-coaching-team-changes-at-ohio-state" target="_blank">Ryan Day</a>. That sounded like music to Tate’s ears after hearing about how well Wilson, Olave and Williams were coached during their time in Columbus.</p> <h2>Who's Recruiting Tate</h2> <p>For Ohio State, Brian Hartline is the primary recruiter. Notre Dame has Tommy Rees and Del Alexander recruiting Tate. Alabama's recruiter is Holmon Wiggins. Tennessee has Kodi Burns and Alex Golesh. While Georgia's primary is Cortez Hankton.</p> <h2>Offers and Favorites</h2> <p>Tate has over 36 offers with Tennessee, LSU, Notre Dame and Ohio State leading at the beginning of June. Tate said he feels as though he could step in and contribute at Ohio State if he were to commit there.</p> <h2>Carnell Tate Visits</h2> <p>On April 8th, Tate visited Tennessee. April 22nd he visited LSU. He visited Ohio State on April 2nd, 2022. He saw Notre Dame on March 15th, 2022. And he was at Georgia on March 26th, 2022. The South Florida Express is expected to be in Columbus for Ohio State’s 7-on-7 tournament on June 16. Could he commit in the days before the unofficial visit? We’ll have to wait and see.</p> <h2>Ranking</h2> <p>Tate is considered the 6th best wide receiver in the country, 39th best overall nationally, and 10th best recruit in the State of Florida for 2023.</p> <h2>Crystal Ball Predictions</h2> <p>Tom Loy predicted with medium confidence Ohio State. Steve Wiltfong has medium confidence of Ohio State. Mike Singer liked Notre Dame in May of 2021. Carson MacRae, EJ Holland, Sam Spiegelman, Woody Wommack, Geoffrey Ketchum, Mike Farrell, and Kevin Noon like Ohio State. And Kyle Kelly recently went with Tennessee.</p><h2>Bowl Invitations</h2> <p>Tate is on the All American Bowl Roster for 2023.</p> <h2>Stats</h2> <p>In 2019, he had 444 yards on 28 catches and 5 touchdowns.</p> <iframe width="994" height="559" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QC-Yr6YA9lU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>Interview with five-star WR Carnell Tate</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Mark Fletcher Ohio State 2023 Running Back

Considered a big back, he has provided his school with three productive high school football seasons, gaining over 2500 yards and 29 touchdowns.</p> <p>At 6'1" 225 lbs. Fletcher, a four start running back, picked OSU over Penn State, Michigan, and Miami of Florida. He is rated the 7th best running back in the country. He made visits to Ohio State on April 1st, Miami on March 24th, Michigan on March 21st and was at USC on March 11th.</p> <p>Crystal Ball projections made shortly prior to the commitment had Fletcher going to the Buckeyes.</p> <h2>Ohio State 2023 Class</h2><p>Running Back's <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2661/tony-alford-sees-opportunity-at-ohio-state" target="_blank">coach Tony Alford</a> recruited Fletcher and is looking to add another back to the 2023 class. At the time of Fletcher's commitment, Ohio State had 6 commits including mostly defensive players. No other running backs are currently looking to join the Buckeye's class. Ahead of Fletcher on the depth chart are Marcus Crowley, Miyan Williams, Treveyon Henderson, Evan Pryor and Dallen Hayden. </p> <p>Fletcher plays 7-on-7 with current commit Cedrick Hawkins at South Florida Express.

  Urban Meyer Takes Role With NIL Company
Posted by: Steve - 03-23-2022, 10:17 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4c319cc43cc5_CDCB-UrbanMeyer_2.jpg"><img width="244" height="244" title="UrbanMeyer" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="UrbanMeyer" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4c319cc43cc5_CDCB-UrbanMeyer_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>The Urban Meyer news of late is a huge college football story, along with the new Name, Image, and Likeness rules. Mr. Meyer accepting a position on the board of directors for the THE Foundation is in sync with the new rule. This rule states that college sports players can now earn money through <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3114/ohio-state-buckeyes-v-akron-zips-week" target="_blank">name, image, and likeness</a> deals with companies like Nike.</p> <h2>THE Foundation</h2><p>What the <a href="https://twitter.com/TheFoundation1_" target="_blank">THE Foundation</a> does is help improve the quality of life for the sports players on the college level at Ohio State University. So not only are the players allowed to make money where only the NCAA used to, there may be other perks to being a player at O.S.U. through The Foundation.</p> <p>With all the bad news in the world today, what is happening in Ohio is welcome news indeed. For years now, people have been formulating ways to help college players receive monies for all the money they bring to the school and the NCAA. It was an off-balance partnership, with the bread winners left eating crumbs.</p> <h2>Urban Meyer News</h2><p>One cannot help but get the impression that Urban Meyer had been working hard behind the scenes to get this done for both the player's sake and his. Maybe he "profited" from his behind-the-scenes work by way of getting fast racked onto the board, which is fine if true. It's fine, considering the players got the best deal out of it.</p> <p>The prospect of getting endorsement deals when you're good enough should help spark greater competition. Competition between players for a good payday only makes the players better, the teams better, and the league itself better because of the rising talents.</p> <p>It's still unclear exactly how the THE Foundation will improve their quality of life. Hopefully health insurance is on the top of the list. If the NCAA does this already, more supplemental insurance is never a bad thing. Or possibly pushing the right people to put more relevant and needed money management courses into the curriculum. Making a lot of money is one thing, but learning how to manage it will greatly improve the player's quality of life.</p> <p>So all in all, the business end of this sport, in this college and others, is gaining positive press for their endeavors. The Urban Meyer news is good in and of itself, but when you couple that with the new name/image/likeness rule, you have a sport that is turning heads and, potentially, a larger fan base.</p> <p>We can only hope that Mr. Meyer serves a long and distinguished tenure at the Foundation. That step up for him was a logical and productive one. We also hope the new rules will benefit the players, as the context of the rule is intended.</p> <iframe width="951" height="535" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/leWjdWYxNDI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>NAME IMAGE AND LIKENESS NCAA RULE CHANGE EXPLAINED | USC Athlete Victoria Garrick</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Luke Montgomery Buckeye Offensive lineman for 2023
Posted by: Steve - 02-26-2022, 02:51 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Luke-Montgomery-Buckeye-Offensive-linema_F577-LukeMontgomery_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="334" title="LukeMontgomery" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="LukeMontgomery" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Luke-Montgomery-Buckeye-Offensive-linema_F577-LukeMontgomery_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/lukeMonty8" target="_blank">Luke Montgomery</a>, 6'5" 270 lbs., out of Findlay Ohio High School recently committed to the Ohio State football team for 2023. Some teams thought he could also play defensive line but was rated on the offensive line and is coming to Columbus to play that position. He said shortly after a school event that he wants to compete and win a spot with OSU.</p> <p>Montgomery selected Ohio State because of the culture, coaches and teammates which were important to him. He committed to the Buckeyes at his school on the CBS HQ show. Ohio State moved from 12th in the country to 7th in the country with the commitment. So the class is well on its way to be a top 5 rated class as they seem to always finish. OSU offensive coach Kevin Wilson coached Montgomery's father when he attended Miami (Ohio), so there was more than one connection for the young prospect.</p> <h2>Who Recruited Montgomery</h2> <p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2783/Kevin-Wilson-Has-Hoosiers-Believing-In-Themselves" target="_blank">Kevin Wilson</a> and Justin Frye for Ohio State. Bill O'Brien for Alabama. Sherrone Moore for Michigan. Mike Elston and Marcus Freeman for Notre Dame. And Robbie Caldwell for Clemson.</p> <p>Montgomery had over 30 Offers including Michigan, Ohio State, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Alabama as his favorites.</p> <h2>Montgomery Visits</h2> <p>Ryan Day, line coach <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3136/justin-frye-offensive-line-coach-for-ohio-state" target="_blank">Justin Frye</a> and Corey Dennis from Ohio State visited Montgomery during a basketball game in Findlay on January 14th. Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson visited Findlay for a basketball practice shortly after. Montgomery visited Ohio State with his parents at the end of January. His parents thought he was ready to commit to the Buckeyes during the visit but he waited a little longer to consider other programs.</p> <p>Other visits included Alabama on June 14th, 2021, USC on April 23rd of 2021, Clemson on June 15th, 2021, Georgia on June 12th, 2021, Georgia Tech on June 13th, 2021, Michigan on June 10th, 2021, Michigan State on June 26th, 2021, Penn State on July 25th, 2021, And Oklahoma on June 19th, 2021. After each visit he came back and still had Ohio State as the top program on his board.</p> <h2>Ranking</h2> <p>Montgomery is considered a 4 Star, 49th overall, 4th best offensive tackle, and the best prospect in Ohio.</p> <h2>Crystal Ball Predictions</h2> <p>Bill Kurelic, Steve Wiltfong, Sean Fitz, Justin Thind, JC Shurburtt, and Hale McGranahan all thought Ohio State. Joseph Hastings, Carson MacRae, Eric Lammers, Richard Schnyderite, Dylan Callaghan-Croley also all had Ohio State as his destination.</p> <h2>Scouting Report</h2> <p>Started as a tight end and defensive end but has grown into the tackle positions. Has the ability to pull and make plays out in space. Has experience at a number of spots on both sides of the line. Has a high school freshman brother, Ryan, that has also been offered a scholarship by Ohio State.</p> <p>He joins <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/joshua-padilla-2023-ohio-state-commit-at-offensive-lineman/" target="_blank">Joshua Padilla</a> from Ohio as lineman in Ohio State's 2023 class.</p> <iframe width="1048" height="590" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zDB1UQHXY08" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>Luke Montgomery: Ohio State 2023 priority commits to the Buckeyes, ready to lead class</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Justin Frye Offensive Line Coach for Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 01-11-2022, 08:57 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Justin-Frye-Offensive-Line-Coach-for-Ohi_10B64-JsutinFrye_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="JsutinFrye" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="JsutinFrye" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Justin-Frye-Offensive-Line-Coach-for-Ohi_10B64-JsutinFrye_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>According to a source, Ohio State’s search for their next offensive line coach is over. The eagerly-anticipated hire of <a href="https://uclabruins.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/justin-frye/3671" target="_blank">coach Justin Frye</a> is expected to get formalized early this week with an announcement. Throughout the league, coaches are familiar with the innovative and creative offense that has led to a high number of rushing yards each year. Also included in the announcement will likely be an additional title, such as run game coordinator. The Buckeyes are closing in on a deal with Frye, sources said.</p> <p>I think this will be a really nice move, he brings the knowledge, experience and track record of success. The current OSU offensive linemen are familiar with him and he can hit the ground running.</p> <h2>Replacing Greg Studrawa</h2><p>In replacing <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">Greg Studrawa</a>, the Buckeyes are hiring Justin Frye (38 years old), an Indiana native who most recently coached at UCLA. Prior to that, he was a graduate assistant at Florida (2009-2010) and offensive line coach at Boston College (2013-17). Much of Coach Justin Frye's success off the field begins with his instincts as a player. After all, he played college football at Indiana University for 4 years.</p> <h2>Justin Frye and Ryan Day</h2><p>Frye's history of working with Ryan Day is also noteworthy because both men have a track record of producing top-notch results. They did it in similar fashion at Temple, where an improved offensive line helped the Owls go 9-4 and win their second bowl game in school history.</p> <h2>Justin Frye at UCLA</h2><p>In his first season at UCLA, Justin Frye directed an offensive line that helped the Bruins improve from 67th to fifth in the FBS by averaging 185.6 rushing yards per game. Prior to Frye’s arrival, UCLA averaged 152.8 rushing yards per game over the previous two seasons. In 2018, UCLA running back Joshua Kelley tallied 1,243 yards on the ground, which ranked 10th in school history for a single campaign.</p> <p>Frye helped anchor a Bruins' rushing attack that was second in the Pac-12 last season with 215.1 yards per game and 17th nationally in 200-yard rushing games (8). The Bruins were also second in the conference and 11th nationally with 36.5 points per game, while leading the Pac-12 with 441.2 total yards of offense per game.</p> <iframe width="948" height="533" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/y8Kh8dmXoS4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>Ohio State: Why Did Greg Studrawa, Buckeyes Part Ways?</h3><div class="feedflare">
