Big-hitting safety prospect who played a lot of linebacker in high school. No fear in run support. Can he cover in a one-on-one situation like the Buckeyes need? The coaches believe he can, at least eventually.
A redshirt year is likely as Wint better learns the position and what Ohio State wants from him. Is the type who could help immediately in kick coverage, however.
