25.Sep.2009 Last Saturday's Recruiting Effort
Reading the post game comments from recruits, it doesn’t seem like any of them had great visits. Bernard said something to the effect of, “I’m still considering OSU going forward.”
Read between the lines and it’s not good, especially if you take into account how he raved about Tennessee after his visit there.
Owamagbe Odighizuwa talked about meeting with professors in the business school, but like Bernard, he didn’t sound overly impressed either. To be fair he’s been a Cal lean since his official. The one wrinkle is that he does want to stay local if possible, so watch for the Ducks to make a major push. I’d put our chances at 8% right now.
If you’re looking for a silver lining to the story it’s that we showed the recruits they can complete for playing time right away.
