With all due deference to the recruiting gurus, the State I currently live in does not regard Ohio St. the same way that EVERY high school in the State in which I was born and raised regards Nebraska. There are portions of Ohio that regard Ohio St. as a fine program, but not one that is seen as the penultimate in athletic achievement. It could very well be true that the Youngstown/CMooney ties are stronger than the affinity for THE state school with questionable ethics.
No need to be so dismissive.
Yeah, Michigan seems to pull its fair share of players out of Ohio.
