To add, I love this quote from Hawkins from Cleveland.com
For Hawkins, though, a potential pathway to the NFL through Ohio State wasn't what got him to Columbus.
"It's just the culture and tradition they have," he said. "The hype of the whole community down there. I didn't go for the NFL. It's always been the school I wanted to go to.
"Just people knowing you're from Ohio State is a great thing. Now you add the draft in, that's a plus. Everything is good."
Obviously making it to The League will always be on their minds, but you also need guys like that. He realizes OSU will put him in a good spot for it, but it seems like he has his head on straight. Good luck young man.
