Larry Johnson Believes This is the Best Group of Defensive Ends He’s Ever Had

Ohio State defensive end Tyquan Lewis was the Big Ten’s Defensive Lineman of the Year last season. Teammates Jalyn Holmes and Sam Hubbard were named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten. Nick Bosa, meanwhile, was named Freshman All-American by virtually every outlet that puts such a team out. Splitting reps between the four of them throughout the entire season, none of OSU’s vaunted “Rushmen” posted staggering numbers — only Lewis had more…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘You’ve done it before, now let’s perfect it’

For the first time since 2014, the Buckeyes will be breaking in a new starting center. With Pat Elflein off to the Minnesota Vikings, fifth-year senior Billy Price now steps in for him. Price started right alongside Elflein since that 2014 season, so experience in starting won’t be an issue. According to Price, experience at center won’t be an issue either. “I told you guys last year that we do…

With Kevin Wilson, Buckeyes Guaranteed to Have Best Offense in B1G, Right? Wrong

What happens when you cross Kevin Wilson’s game planning on offense with Urban Meyer’s top-notch recruiting? Nothing, if it doesn’t done correctly. Wilson might be the spark and the Ohio State offense might be the fuse, but if the fuse isn’t connected properly, you’ve got yourself little more than a dollar-store sparkler. Granted, you can still severely burn your fingers on those things, but they don’t do as much damage…

Ohio State Spring Recap: Deep Thoughts on the Buckeye Receivers

With Noah Brown off to the NFL two years early, the Buckeye receivers had to find a new starter this spring. Given how unproven the entire group was, however, they were actually looking for two starters. Everything with this group is up for grabs, and whoever grabs the job will be doing so both figuratively and literally.  Did that happen this spring? Not completely.

Another First in NFL History for the Buckeye Cornerbacks and Kerry Coombs

When the Buffalo Bills selected Nate Clements with the 21st pick of the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft, it marked the first time in NFL history that a single school had three cornerbacks drafted in the first round over a three-year period. Clements joined Ahmed Plummer (2000) and Antoine Winfield (1999) to complete the feat. That accomplishment has been unmatched by any school since. On Friday, however, the…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘I feel like we’re even deeper than we were last year’

Former Buckeye middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan should be hearing his name called tonight at the NFL Draft, which will leave a sizable hole in the Ohio State linebackers room. Despite that void, however, new starting middle linebacker Chris Worley was impressed by what he saw from his position group this spring. “I feel like we’re even deeper than we were last year honestly,” he said. “Just as far as guys…

Buckeye Football Commitment Impact: Cornerback Sevyn Banks

Sevyn Banks is now a Buckeye. Two days and two commitments for the Ohio State Buckeyes, this time it comes from a little further south. Wednesday, the Buckeyes picked up the commitment of Georgia’s Brenton Cox, and last night the Buckeyes went into Florida and snagged a rangy and quick defensive back to add to the class of 2018. There wasn’t a lot of talk about Banks committing to the…
