The 2013 season ended months ago, but Ohio State is just now getting around to naming permanent captains for the 12-2 campaign. Jack Mewhort, C.J. Barnett, Corey Linsley, Kenny Guiton and Corey Brown were tabbed with the honors Friday.
Ryan Shazier, Braxton Miller and Christian Bryant were part an eight-man group of roving captains last season but did not earn permanent honors.
The Buckeyes have now recognized 254 players as a team captain in its 124-year history. Only eight have been multi-season captains.
