Joey Bosa is Downright Dominating

“Joey is the most dominating defensive player I’ve ever had. And we’ve had some pretty special guys — like [Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl defensive tackle] Geno Atkins, [Chicago Bears safety] Major Wright, [San Francisco 49ers linebacker] Tavares Gooden — come through here.” (miamiherald.com)

This line is a gem as well

Nicknamed “Bane” by his classmates — after the fictional villain in this summer’s latest Batman movie — Bosa said he bench presses up to 440 pounds and squats 500 pounds regularly.

Yeah but does he weigh 170 and bench 420?

Fictional villain?  I thought Batman was real!

Alex's picture

he also wants me to tell you all he's closer to 6-6 and that somehow he "always shrinks in articles"

LOL.  Yeah, he's getting bigger and he's proud of it.  I still can't get over how huge he looked at FNL.  I knew who he was right away.

It will be a lot of fun to watch this kid.

Thas some great praise right there! This kid should be dominant for us.
Alex do you think they'll move  him down to 3-tech like Adolphus..or keep him at Strong Side end?

BUCKEYES BABY!

I think Bosa will stay at Strong Side End. Dude looks like a JJ Watt or Ryan Kerrigan type player. 

Alex's picture

I think he will be like Cam Heyward in that he'll play strong-side end and then move down to DT on 3rd downs/passing downs

Bosa sliding down next to A-Wash with Spence and Pittman/Marcus on the edges..lol not fair .

BUCKEYES BABY!

I agree on the JJ Watt comparison..also reminds me of a Cam Heward.

BUCKEYES BABY!

He says he wants to go into business or real estate or be an orthodontist to make a lot of money.  If he keeps his work ethic up and stays elligible, he'll make a shit ton of money playing foozball I think.  WOW! What a beast!

I think Sevon Pittmans going to be in trouble...

BUCKEYES BABY!

Alex's picture

Se'Von will be fine....a line of Hankins (potentially) Bennett Hale Carter Spence Washington Schutt Pittman Miller Bosa Price Sprinkle Hill Moore will be legit in 2013 and I can see at least 8-10 of those 14 being used regularly next season

Gotta love giving up on a kid before one snap was ever taken.  This is what sucks about following recruiting....as soon as a guy committs here....to hell with our current group, this HS kid is better. Maybe let things play out, just saying.

I'm DEFINITLY not one of those guys..I was backing storm Klein and Bellamy like no other. I didn't say he'll never play here..Im just saying I think Bosa ends up better here that's all. Hes bigger, has a better motor, stronger, more intense, and more versatile IMO.

BUCKEYES BABY!

I think Bosa will come in and jump above Pittman at Strongside..if not 2013 then 2014..just a hunch.
I like that rotation you listed above!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Had no idea his uncle is Eric Kumerow. (For all of you kids, look him up.) I'm not sure what to make of his comments about not liking any particular subject (read: Andy Katzenmoyer), but not everyone can have Krenzel's brain.

At least he keeps a 3.3, you don't have to love school to understand that it is important and take care of your business to let you do your passion.

A 3.3 is a good grade, not spectacular. I know he attends a Catholic school, but how tough are their academic standards? And what kind of classes does he take?

since when is a 3.3 (in between B and B+) not good enough? Not everyone can be an "A" student.....not saying he's a genius but he takes care of business good enough for me

i had a 2.8 GPA in high school when i graduated, got a 3.3 at OSU, and now i've got my master's degree. unless your HS GPA is in the toliet or you're rocking a 4.3 with post secondary classes, it really doesn't count for a whole lot to me

William's picture

Agreed. I had 4.6 in high school (our valedictorian had like a 4.9) and I didn't give a rat's ass. It was nice to come to OSU with 25 hours of college credit though.

This is a 3.3 from the same school that graduated Duron Carter....let that sink in...

I look forward to Bosa doing this to scUM on a yearly basis...

You know, I always suspected Batman's utility belt was Sun colored.
