It's hard to say Grant's ship as sailed; he was productive last season. His first two years, no doubt, were disappointing. But there was improvement in Year 3, and one would think that will only continue going forward. McMillan is obviously highly regarded, but I'd be surprised if he could put up the same numbers Grant did last year.
Underwood is definitely an interesting piece of the line. I was surprised he made it back this quickly from ACL injury, especially someone his size. But Warinner said he's right on target and 100 percent.
Warinner said Marotti told him Billy Price is the strongest player he's ever had in his strength program anywhere. The comment came after winter conditioning.
This is extremely common. Staffs get together all the time during the offseason. Ohio State and Clemson actually met a few years ago. Buckeyes were also in Gainesville when Urban was head coach.
It required surgery, so it's somewhat major. But he returned to drills Tuesday after he hurt his knee and went to the locker room. Only being out for a few months also leads one to believe it's not a significant injury, as do the words "sprain." Still, it required surgery. Tough blow for a player that could have used the reps. Coaches certainly glad it's spring, though, instead of fall.
Thomas is on target to have a solid season, but he's been a spring sensation twice, redshirted one of those years and was a non-factor the other. Marshall, Smith and Dixon could also be regulars in the wide receiver rotation. But not all five of these guys is going to make a huge impact. It just doesn't happen that way. As for Jeff Greene, that's the person to keep an eye on. He was good at Georgia Tech (I know they don't pass a whole lot, but still) and he was outstanding in the first day of spring camp. His size, sure hands and underrated speed is something OSU hasn't had in a while. I think he'll be a household name come November.
Tressel will be enshrined, there's zero doubt about that. The year is the only thing in question. Plenty of people who cheated or were involved in scandals are in the College Football Hall of Fame.
