Mississippi state speed dating

— Evin Moore (@EMo Tha Gr8) April 8, 2018 This question is a reference to North Stafford (Va.) running back Devyn Ford, a 4-star prospect ranked as the No. 6 running back in the class, per the 247Sports composite rankings.Ford was on campus at Ohio State on Thursday and Friday, making his fourth unofficial visit of the recruiting process to Columbus to check out the program.Familiarity can breed contempt, but it’s also the only way you can ever learn if you’re really compatible with a person or football program.

Barrio offers a selection of tacos both traditional and “deconstructed” (that means you get to build them yourself). Sadly, you have to have the same filling in all three.

(I wanted more of that octopus.) I chose the smoky skirt steak — delicious with a dollop of melted cheese and an onion relish wrapped in a sturdy blue corn tortilla.

Ford has informed Land of 10 that he’ll return just three weeks later, making official visits to his final three of Virginia Tech (April 14), Penn State (April 21), and Ohio State (April 28) before announcing a May 18 decision.

He’s been to each of these programs four times or more a piece, many of them recently, which begs an interesting question — why return so soon? I’m sure on some level the answer is “because he can.” You’re only a recruit once and that process only involves five official visits.

As the Tribune reported around the time Barrio opened last summer, look for “Mexican-ish” here.

Lunch is a creative take on Mexican dishes and flavors that pull in American and Japanese additions.

I can see why — it’s a handsome dish with meaty cylinders of grilled octopus paired with crisped pieces of potato in a garlicky mayo.

The cornbread arrives in a cast-iron pan, is firm enough to slice neatly and eat in-hand, yet sports a texture so delightfully loose and crumbly that you may worry — needlessly — that it will fall apart.

Ford will get three weekends of high-level college football programs rolling out the red carpet for him, paying for his meals and flights, and doing their best to shower him with positive attention and impress him. I don’t know that he’ll see anything all that different than what he’s already seen.

He’s met the players at these programs, watched practices and games and seen the dormitories, campuses, and academic lives of student-athletes.

“Right now, it’s just building relationships with coaches, seeing what I can take from offensive schemes and seeing which one is going to benefit me more in the future.
