If you want to talk about guys he (OSU) missed out on inside the state of Oklahoma you can add to the list Dominic Richardson (McGuinness) - TCU. OSU missed out on ALL 3 Power 5 backs in the state!
I’ll give you Glass last year being a 4 Star. But jury is still out. Came into summer over weight and out of shape. Forced to redshirt when everyone thought he’d be a contributor. The JUCO guy they brought it was kinda the same situation. Thought he would be a contributor right away (I mean that’s why JUCOs are brought in, right?). So, jury is still out on him. Jamyl Jeter to me is not a RB that we should consider a top get. He was a late signee. His next biggest offer was Iowa State. Not really a highly recruited back.
I agree with you… Chuba coming back could have hurt OSU’s shot at some guys. But at the same time, shouldn’t being home to the nation’s leading rusher bring good attention to your recruiting too?
