Ohio State just added another scholarship offensive lineman, but this one wasn’t a new recruit.
Kevin Woidke, who walked on to the team in 2015 is now on scholarship for his final season as a Buckeye.
Woidke earned a letter while playing in 12 games in 2017. He saw extended action again in 2018 on the extra point and field goal units.
He also earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2017 and 2018, and was named an OSU scholar-athlete in the first three years he played with the Buckeyes.
Woidke is a Cleveland native who played high school football with former OSU DT Dre’Mont Jones at Cleveland St. Ignatius.
OSU hasn’t officially announced the news, but the program’s Director of On-Campus Recruiting, Tori Magers, tweeted it out on Monday night.
When ya guy (@kwad941) gets a FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP & forgets to tell you… so you yell at him & he proceeds to use newly found ? on “I’m Sorry” ?’s.

With Woidke now on scholarship, the Buckeyes currently sit one over the NCAA’s limit of 85.
They are also in the market for at least one more transfer offensive lineman and potentially a quarterback as well.
Even if they add a couple more players, they only have to get down to that 85 number before fall camp begins.
