Aliou Bah

3 Star Offensive Tackle Aliou Bah, currently playing for IMG Academy in Bradenton Florida, wants the ability to visit with coaches and see campuses before making a college selection as he retweeted a post by Jake Pope. With over 36 offers, the 6’6” 325 tackle is highly sought after by many school buy has narrowed the list down to Ohio State, Florida State, Michigan State, and Oklahoma. A Crystal Ball prediction by Bill Kurelic has him going to Columbus Ohio in 2022. NCAA rules have limited visits to help stop the spread of Covid 19 and keep kids safe. But the situation is not normal and makes selecting a school more of a guess than a great feeling.

Reid Carrico, a four star linebacker from Ironton, Ohio committed to Ohio State on September 10th. The 6’3 225 pound Carrico attends Ironton High School and previously camped at Ohio State in June. Carrico was offered a scholarship to Ohio State in April and the Buckeyes considered him their top in-state target at the linebacker position for the class of 2021. Landing Carrico is yet another early coup for the Buckeyes 2021 recruiting class which already features five star defensive end Jack Sawyer and four star offensive lineman Ben Christman. Carrico committed to the Buckeyes just two days after his first game day experience at Ohio State. The Buckeyes shut out in-state opponent Cincinnati that day 49-0 and it’s not hard to imagine Carrico being part of that type of defensive performance in the future.

NFC Playoff predictions

And you thought your NFL NFC team had a chance to get to the playoffs this year? You are probably wrong. Here are my NFC Playoff predictions.

NO CHANCE
NFC East
NGReally hard to predict this team but they won’t make the playoffs.
WAQB Smith has less to work with than he did in KC.
NFC North
DTAll Stafford has is his arm. No OL, no WRS and a bad D.
CHHeading in the right direction but not sure if they have the right QB
NFC South
CRCam is a question mark but the D is fine. That is not enough to get them into the playoffs
TBJameis Winston starts the season with a 3-game suspension in the worst part of the schedule for TB and the D is not good enough to rescue the O.
NFC West
AZThey find out how much they miss Mathieu and fail to make the playoffs.
Teams that are in the playoffs
PHThe D will keep PH in the race no matter who is QB
MNKirk Cousins has much better targets than in WA. He and the D will get it done.
NOBrees and
