My thought too....the fact that Derrius picked Ohio means the class must be full or they are thinking it will be thus, no scholarship for him...17 now and add Marsh (grey shirt) in and we have room for 4 perhaps 5 more commits...
Derrui swill be a good fit at Ohio and should do well their...

Vick wasn't real high on NU's charts nor was NU high on Vick's. Vick wanted to play QB. Has always wanted to. A year ago he wasn't sure if basketball or football would help him most. I think the deciding factor for Vick was what we were recruiting him for (ATH most likely ending up at DB) vs what Ohio was recruiting him for (QB). While I want to jump in on the "this tells me the other recruits are a go" conversation, I can't say that I honestly feel that way according to Vick's situation. Vick would have had to compete hard to play QB with the guys we have coming in (Turner, possibly Starling), as well as the guys we have on campus (Martinez, Green, Carnes, Kellogg), as well as Marsh who was also a pretty decent talent his last year in HS. So, he most likely would have moved to DB. And I think it would have been just as rough competing to see the field there with the talent we have and coming in. Ohio was probably his best option. Good luck to him.
"He’s under the impression that our standards have slipped because we elected to retain the services of a coach who, over the last 6 years, has fewer wins than only SIX of his contemporaries in the same time period, and whose winning by percentage in those same 6 years to open a career puts him in the top 5% of all coaches who have ever coached big time college football.I just want you to let that sink in for a moment."
