WR Blue Smith Transfer
Didn't see a thread, but seems like a really nice pick up to help out the WR corp.

The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder was once ranked a 4-star prospect and the No. 126th overall prospect with a player ranking of 94, within the 2018 recruiting cycle.

RE: WR Blue Smith Transfer
Yeah, that is a really nice pickup. I know he was really interested in us the first go round. Not surprising really, as I think a lot of people called it that he would struggle to see the field early on at OSU. He definitely has the physical gifts to be a great receiver for us.

RE: WR Blue Smith Transfer
Also, he will have two years of college experience after his red shirt year, so I could see him being a starter right away once he's eligible.

Per the article, he's trying for immediate eligibility and seems confident about it. Of course, we heard similar thoughts regarding Hudson. Either way, he looks like a great add!


somebody had to do it:

RE: WR Blue Smith Transfer
Really exciting what Coach Fickel is building here at Cincinnati. The talent level is significantly better than when he arrived and he has made Cincinnati a legit landing spot for even elite level players, especially those in the area. Can’t wait to see how the program continues to progress.

He would have been UC's top recruit ever (according to 247) if we actually nabbed him out of HS.

Thank you, O$U.

By all means, keep sending us the guys that you stockpiled to keep your rivals from getting... but never had any intention of playing.

It really is sad...situations like this and Sam Longo a few years back always make me wish people had better advice. He basically lost two years of his playing career on bad sales pitches when he literally was between the two schools he has ended up enrolling in.

Any chance of him being that increasingly rare two-sport player for us? If I recall, he had a host of Division 1 basketball offers in high school.

I see it differently. All these guys believe in their talent and I have no issue with trying to see if you can make it at the highest level. If it doesn't work out you can transfer and still have a couple years left.

I was wondering the same thing!
This could be the perfect year to do it. He would be redshirting for football anyway. So he could devote a little bit more time to the basketball team.

Wishful thinking I guess.
