Boren by far. He brought us 2 brothers and unimaginable embarrassment for ttun in having a former team captain under Bo have his children play for The Ohio State University!
Life is good.
I believe Zach was already here (or committed at least) before Justin transferred. I could be wrong though.
Whether Zach was offered a scholarship or not played a large role in Justin's decision to transfer.
Zach never received an offer from RR, which started the whole process of Justin leaving and making the comments about 'Family Values' (or a lack of) in regards to ttun. The rest is sweet, sweet history.
I need to see another year out of Mewhort before I can place him at the top. I went with Brewster.
Honestly, Brewsters senior year was a big disappointment and left a bad lasting impression.
It was Bollman's fault. He made him worse.
I play school
I agree that Brewster's senior year I expected more too. He did have good years his first three.
Have to agree. Adams got better with experience while Brewster seemed to peak early in his college career.
Always felt like he had it out for braxton and botched some snaps on purpose
The Brewster head bob thing still bothers me.
Edit: Otherwise he is the easy choice
I assume those voting for Brewster aren't counting his senior year Penn State game...or any shotgun snap his senior year.
Exactly what I was trying to say. The shotgun snaps were a nightmare. I understand the height and wingspan were significantly different between TP and BM but put that ball between the numbers.
I went with Brewster mostly because of the entire career, not just his senior year. He was practically a 4 year starter and was the best on the line for a few years. Boren was the most consistent player. Adams was probably the most talented but what a rocky career. I would have said Boone but I don't recall him being as great at OSU as much as he was on a great team. cordle I must admit I don't recall but remember he was decent!
Mewhort might become the best of the list after this next year but if I include that, then I also have to take into account the others that may play this year. I don't think any of them meet the intent of the question.
I will say this, I think we will see at least 2-3 players who will be better than all of those above come through here in the next couple of years. I can't wait for the next 5 years!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
JB Shugarts anyone?
"False Start. Offense. Number 76..."
The nightmares won't stop! Wake up in cold sweats sometimes screaming "NOT AGAIN #76!"
Inní mér syngur vitleysingur
Dang it beat me to it.
I'm stepping out on a limb and going with Mewhort. I think the new and improved Buckeye program turns out one of the best in years when Jack moves on to the big leagues.
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Gotta go JB Shugarts. FALSE START FOR LIFE
Over the last five or more years we've had a lot of unrealized talent. Some of these guys made big strides in the NFL. A better poll might be "Best Lineman from Ohio that was not a Buckeye"...the fish that Bollman didn't bother to reel in, but should have.
Reid Fragel was awesome this year and will prove to be a really good pro for any team that drafts him. He's my pick for best lineman the last 5 years..
"GIMMIE THAT BEAT FOOL!!! IT'S A FULL TIME JACK MOVE" Ice Cube jack for beats..
If only we could expand it back a couple of more years then it would be a really easy to go with Nick Mangold. He was a great talent out of OSU who really excelled and developed into a great pro too. He's one of the best centers in the NFL and already has 4 pro bowls! If I had to go with the guys from the last 5 years I'd say Mewhort has the most potential while Reid Fragel also was pretty solild and is the type of player to do whatever it takes for the team.
Jimmy Cordle - very underrated and very consistent
I'm just happy to be here
