CONGRATS, DUDE!

If you had me guess, I'd have told you he already was on scholarship.

New Day for OSU. Same noon for TTUN.

You don't give a scholly to a walk on unless you already know someone will be leaving. Might be bad news about the potential transfer though.

Not necessarily. It's not as if we're hurting for talent. When you recruit like OSU does you get players who aren't used to being backups. If someone leaves I wish them well.

Negativity is a choice.

It’s true that people leave, but you still don’t elevate a walk on unless you already know ones available.

Sorry if that was confusing, I meant bad news about the potential O-Lineman that was rumored to be perhaps, transferring into the program as a graduate.

Could more than 1 player be leaving?

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Or maybe, just maybe, he earned it outright and it wasn't just given to him.

The culture here is amazing. I love it.

Respect any player who does the work yet realizes he won't play much.

Exactly, they are every bit as much a Buckeye as anyone else and will always be able to say and know it.

As many TDs as we scored last season...I would say that he played quite a lot.

Congratulations kevin!! Hard work pays off. I wonder what it means for the grad transfers though?

Congrats, Kevin!

I had predicted the guy would have gotten a scholarship by this past season.  I was off a year.

No way was this happening without the staff having confidence someone is leaving, and no one is being pushed out the door to make room for a walk-on (no matter how good the walk-on).

Congrats Kevin.  Hope this reduces the load for your senior year!  Make it a memorable one!  

Scholarship player in the Ohio State Buckeye football team!  This does have a great ring!!  The things you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren !!

Does this mean the Rutgers kid is out?

I doubt this would signal one way or the other. I'd be highly surprised if 2 more guys didn't leave by fall, giving room for both.

Yeah, I agree with analytical guy. any news on that front, though, btw?

Not necessarily. I’m too tired to go look up past history but I feel like we usually lose 2-3 guys between now and August every year.

Scholarship offered?

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

Good for you, Kevin Woidke.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

Congrats to Kevin. Tori M. busts her ass for the program and is a huge value add.

When CJ Saunders was awarded a scholarship last year to put us at 87 scholarships, it was announced within the next two weeks that Burrow and Wayne Davis were transferring out. I would imagine they know multiple people that are leaving, but pointless to speculate who at this point. 

HS

I have a few guesses myself, but have always considered it inappropriate to make them publicly, especially when they're pure hunches. Of course, once they come to pass, you can count on me truthfully reporting that I had been right.

Congratulations to Kevin Woidke.  It speaks volumes of any young man to walk-on and give his all daily without ever being promised of a scholarship.  I love stories like this.  Go Bucks!

HS

So I'd say it appears as though the Rutgers OL in the transfer portal is a no-go.

Muck Fichigan!!!

Unless we presume we have 2 (or more) transferring out still to come... which would be par for the course it would seem.

Nice story to see hard work rewarded

HS

Osu averages 4 to 5 transfers from March to July
Every year. Awarding a schollie to a well deserving
Walk on means NOTHING in regards to the Rutgers OL or another grad QB or anything else...other than...as always 4 to 5 of the present team members will be doing what's best for them.

A TE won't be on the team come August...you can count on a DB and two to three others. Hopefully not on the OL. (LOL)

I always get those good chills through my body when I see a hardworking man be rewarded for their hard work and commitment. Congratulations Kevin! 

After every snap you hit'em and you hit'em and you hit'em if you feel you didn’t hit'em enough hit'em some more
