Recruits Sounding Off On Buckeye QB's

If you believe Ohio State coach Urban Meyer should consider a quarterback change, you're not alone. Meyer and the Buckeyes brought in a host of high-level recruits over the weekend and two of the best took to social media and questioned whether J.T. Barrett is the best man for the job. 

Defensive end prospect Michah Parsons, out of Pennsylvania and offensive tackle Jackson Carman from Fairfield both posted  tweets lobbying for the Buckeyes to go with redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins at quarterback.

Parsons was the first to do so when he responded to a tweet from Bucknuts and 24-7 sports reporter Patrick Murphy, who reported that Urban Meyer would not consider a change at quarterback.  

A day later, Parsons--who said he enjoyed his visit to Ohio State, backtracked a bit posting an apology.

But Parsons ended up having company in questioning of whether Barrett should remain QB. On Monday, Carmen, another top prospect who was in town for the Buckeye loss Saturday night, chimed in with his two cents.

Urban Meyer, at Monday's press conference, was asked about the critical tweets and indicated he was "made aware of them." I would doubt that the Twitter commentaries will matter in the long run. These are two of the top uncommitted prospects on Ohio State's board. If they want to be Buckeyes, my guess is there's still a scholarship waiting for them.
