    Jackson Carman back in action, setting visits and enrollment plans
    The country’s top-ranked offensive tackle in the Class of 2018 made his way back to the football field for the start of his final season of high school football this weekend.

    It appears that Jackson Carman is set to pick up where he left off.

    Carman and the Fairfield Indians took part in their first scrimmage of the fall, and from the looks of it, there’s not been much of a change in his game. There’s domination, and then there’s Carman-level domination. There are times it appears almost too easy for the 6-foot-6, 340-pound tackle.

    What is not going to be easy – at least for Ohio State fans – is the next few months of Carman’s college recruitment. The Ohio product will continue to leave Buckeyes fans in suspense.
    Five official visits for Carman is certainly not what Ohio State coaches want to see, but that’s what’s happening. There’s no doubt that USC and Clemson have made a big impression on Carman throughout the summer, but there’s room for Florida State or Wisconsin to muddle the picture as well.

    It’s been stated here many times: Carman isn’t your average Ohio recruit. The odds are still in Ohio State’s favor, but the longer this goes, the more dramatics will ensue.

    On the plus side, though, is the news that Carman will enroll early. If he does choose the Buckeyes, that’s his fastest path to early playing time in Columbus.

    Jackson Carman visits, but remains very Jackson Carman-y
    It wasn’t a total surprise, but it was still good for Ohio State to see 5-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman on campus again on Saturday.

    Carman’s presence is a good thing, obviously, but he remains as mysterious as ever when he steps on campus.

    “I didn’t talk to Jackson much,” one Ohio State commitment shared. “He’s a really hard guy to figure out.”

    That was the general feeling from everyone I talked with about Carman.

    “It’s just hard to know what he’s thinking,” another Buckeyes verbal in attendance shared. “He’s his own guy, and doesn’t really talk much about the way he’s feeling or thinking.”

    So, the good news is that Carman visited Ohio State. The bad news is no one really knows what he’ll do next.

    I'm sorry, but he knew what he was tweeting and what would happen. I don't like how he is trying to play the "maybe I'll go elsewhere" card in hopes staff babies him.

    I just hope he realizes that one day he could be in the EXACT same position as JT.

    TWITTER FINGERS

    Fairfield five-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman has been the topic of much discussion this week, as he — along with five-star defensive end target Micah Parsons and four-star safety commit Jaiden Woodbey — publicly advocated for Ohio State to make a change at the quarterback position following the Buckeyes' 31-16 loss to Oklahoma.

    On Thursday, the 6-foot-6, 330-pound Carman was asked to elaborate.

    “My tweet, originally, was not to bash J.T. Barrett’s play,” Carman told Spectrum Sports' Harrison D. Sanford. “It was simply to say, I have a friend in Dwayne Haskins and I’d like to see him play in the game. Nothing dirty toward J.T.”

    In the days since, though, the tweet has morphed into a very public fued between Carman and former Ohio State quarterback and current ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit.

    “What bothered me about his response was that he automatically assumed that I was going to be in Ohio State’s locker room and that me making a comment on Ohio State’s quarterback decisions were going to affect me in the future,” Carman said. “My comment back to him was to say that Ohio State isn’t necessarily the only place in my future. I still have other options to be able to go, and it’s wrong for him to assume that so easily.”

    Herbstreit, meanwhile, was on the Ryen Russillo Show on ESPN Radio on Thursday afternoon, at which time he was asked about the back-and-forth exchange.

    “For me, I’m a big respect guy. I know that's probably old school, [but] I think some of these five-star guys, they get a little full of themselves because nobody talks real to them,” Herbstreit said. “Everybody plays pretend because they live in a world where everyone pats them on the back, whether it's a teacher, coach or recruiter. Some of them — if they don't have a coach or a mom or a dad or a grandma or somebody to kind of give them a reality check — they kind of lose their way. They think they really matter. And the reality is that they don't. At all. They're all very replaceable.

    “I don’t even know that kid. I don’t follow recruiting, I have no idea who he is,” he continued. “I just didn’t like that he thought he had an opinion about a guy who was a three-time captain — the only one in the history of a school — and was like 'get him out and get my boy in.'

    “I just thought it was really inappropriate for a guy that's being recruited by a school to publicly say, 'Get that bozo out, get that guy in. Let him ball.' Like reality check, kid. Who are you,” Herbstreit asked. “And then he says he’s gonna go to Clemson or USC. Good, that would be a great decision for you. I think it’d be better for Urban Meyer to not have a guy like that on his roster. I just think the kid is full of himself.”

    I'm willing to bet this isn't the last exchange between the two.

    Big kid, dead feet. He is a 5star based on height and weight. Watching his videos he looks great against smaller opponents...let's see when playing against similar talent during the season or all-star games. He could stand to lose 25-30#'s of baby fat and 50#'s of attitude.

    I'd back off, kid has been an odd recruitment from the start. He has always insisted that Ohio State might not be the school for him, bla bla bla. Ok bye! I have also said give Joe Burrow a shot. But I'm just a fan, that's what fans do. Herby made very good points. The kid seems to me like he tries really hard to be "different" and is very stubborn. Micah Parsons was wrong too, but he backed off and apologized because its the right thing to do. This kid has too much pride to back off of his stupid move. Now he is even defending it. Seems more like a maize and blue kid than scarlet and gray.
