Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has shown he will seize every available recruiting opportunity. After coach Chip Kelly left Oregon on Wednesday for the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, two-sport star Tyree Robinson of San Diego, an Oregon recruit, tweeted: “Dang coaches are blowing me up Ohio state just offerd me and my twin.”

He and his twin brother, Tyrell, both 6 feet 4 and about 190 pounds, are considered blue-chip prospects in football and basketball. They committed to Oregon in September. But in need of help at receiver, the Buckeyes jumped back in. Tyree is considered a receiver prospect by analysts, and Tyrell an outside linebacker.“We’re going to open it back up and check out other schools,” Tyree Robinson told Rivals.com. “It’s crazy. It’s just really crazy. I’m just going to open it back up to see what schools come back to see me and my brother. USC and Notre Dame are the only two schools I really have in mind right now, but there will be others.”Another Oregon recruit that Meyer is targeting is Dontre Wilson, a running back/receiver from DeSoto, Texas. His coach, Claude Mathis, said Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman has stayed in touch ever since Wilson committed to Oregon in the fall. He also might visit Oklahoma State.

The Robinson twins and Wilson are expected to visit Ohio State starting Jan. 25.

Philadelphia Flyers forward Tom Sestito, a former Blue Jacket, was chatting with Philadelphia media before training camp, and they asked what he did during the lockout. He told reporters that he played in the English Hockey League but missed the last several weeks because of the mumps. One of the writers asked what exactly happens when you get the mumps.

“My face swelled up,” Sestito said. “I looked like Hitch.” Reporters laughed. Their stories noted that Sestito referred to Ken Hitchcock, a former Flyers and Blue Jackets coach who has once considerably heavier before losing a lot of weight. When Sestito read the stories, he was horrified. He was referring to Hitch, a 2005 movie starring Will Smith. It has a sequence in which Smith’s face swells from an allergic reaction.

The embarrassed writers changed the reference.

John Johnson, former manager of boxer Buster Douglas and a member of the Round Ten development group that has laid the groundwork for a movie about the former heavyweight champion, said attorneys have been negotiating an agreement between Universal Studios, Wild West Productions and Round Ten and are close to finishing.

Johnson said work is almost complete on a script, which tells the story of Douglas’ 1990 upset of Mike Tyson. He said he has been working on this project for four years.

“What’s great is the determination that Vince Vaughn and Wild West have in getting this done,” Johnson said.

When receiver James Quick committed to his hometown school, Louisville, it wasn’t seen as a huge loss for Ohio State, which also was pursuing Shelton Gibson of Cleveland Heights, a recruit of similar caliber. Now that it appears that Gibson’s academic standing could complicate matters, Meyer and his staff already are looking elsewhere.

Drake Harris, who was ranked the No. 1 receiver for 2014 by Tom Lemming of Prep Football Report, committed to Michigan State in June to play football and basketball. But he announced this week that he no longer plans to play basketball, and that apparently led him to reopen his recruiting.Meyer visited Harris in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Monday and offered him a scholarship. Harris said he will visit Ohio State and Florida on Tuesday.

He told ESPN.com this week that “I’m starting to look at more of the bigger football schools since I’m just playing football now.” He said he also is interested in Notre Dame, Michigan, Alabama and Georgia.

Some thought quarterback Michael Vick might be headed to Cleveland, in part because Browns CEO Joe Banner is a fan of spread and read-option offenses and because he helped bring Vick to Philadelphia during his time with the Eagles.

But Kelly joining the Eagles puts a new spin on the situation. Although the Eagles aren’t likely to pay Vick his $15.5 million salary, they might make more of an effort to renegotiate because he is a better fit to the new coach’s offense than Nick Foles.

If Vick isn’t interested in renegotiating and becomes a free agent, the Browns might not be a bad destination. New coach Rob Chudzinksi had success running the spread as offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers with Cam Newton.

While the Cincinnati Reds await word on whether Scott Rolen plans to retire, the Los Angeles Dodgers apparently are discussing whether to pursue him. Cincinnati plans to use Todd Frazier as its regular third baseman, but the team invited Rolen to consider a reserve role. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Rolen, 37, still hasn’t responded.

The Dodgers expect to enter spring training with Luis Cruz as their starting third baseman, but they have explored adding depth at third base and shortstop, where Hanley Ramriez is expected to start. Rolen batted .245 with eight home runs in 92 games for the Reds last season. He has previously preferred to play close to his Indiana home.

The injury that has caused former Ohio State player Byron Mullens to miss 12 straight games with the Charlotte Bobcats was confirmed as torn ligaments in his left ankle. Mullens suffered the injury when he landed awkwardly during a game on Dec. 22 at Denver. The former Canal Winchester star has started shooting drills and is doing rehabilitation work in the pool to strengthen the ankle, but his return remains uncertain.

Jim Bollman, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for 11 seasons on Jim Tressel’s Ohio State coaching staff, reportedly will join Darrell Hazell’s staff as the offensive line coach at Purdue. Bollman spent last season as offensive line coach and running game coordinator at Boston College. Hazell served on Tressel’s staff with Bollman for seven years before taking the Kent State head-coaching job two seasons ago.

Commissioner Jim Delany said the Big Ten will consider renaming its divisions for football, Legends and Leaders, when Maryland and Rutgers join in 2014. He told ESPN that when the league chose the names in 2010, it “didn’t have great options,” probably in part because the divisions didn’t break down geographically. With two new teams and some schools possibly switching divisions, that could change. Delany said the Big Ten would look at “a whole series of related issues” in the next three to four months, such as bowl lineup, divisions, rivalries and branding.“ Whether or not we change division (names), I don’t know. If (the divisions) are not geographic, we are not going to have geographic names,” Delany said.

The names received a lot of criticism when they were announced, which surprised Delany.

“I’m not sure it was a national survey but (of) people who hit the send button,” Delany said. “I don’t take umbrage to negative reaction. I don’t necessarily change when I hear it. I think, on the other hand, we said we would test-market it, and we have for a couple of years. We have the opportunity to look at it again. I’m sure we will.”

The Cincinnati Bengals announced they are cutting ticket prices in 20 sections and keeping prices in 45 of the reserve seats at Paul Brown Stadium the same price in hopes of selling out all eight home games in 2013.

Executive vice president Katie Blackburn said, “As an organization, we are committed to having a full stadium for every game to give us a competitive advantage.”

The team sold out six of its eight home games this past season, and attendance jumped a league-high 24 percent.
