Get the best 4-5 on the field. If that means getting Wade, Arnette, or Riep back at more of a S position, then get it done.

Feel good with Fuller and White in there this fall, then it'll get interesting.

I like Proctor, but still feel if Pryor can get it together he could be an impact player.

Also like the inclusion of Kourt Williams here, yes indeed.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

The defense was frustrating to watch last season. From everything I am reading and seeing, I believe the defense will be very stout this season. Talent was never an issue and now it seems that the coaching will allow the players to succeed at a high level.

This article doesn't really align with the results of today's poll.

I was thinking the same thing.  Wade can bring the lumber and has better coverage skills than any of the players named in the article.  I think it would be a waste of his talent to play him at the nickel. I'm thinking Okudah and Arnette at the corners with Fuller and Wade at the safeties and White at the Bullet.

Really like what I've seen from Bryson Shaw on tape. A tall, athletic safety who plays physical. I look for him to sneak into a starters role in 2021.

I was thinking the same thing, as a Junior in 2021 Shaw would be given his tape one of the more physical players at the point of attack we have at the safety position while also having elite speed!

With Brendan white at bullet, I am pumped to see what proctor can do, if he starts. He has excellent ball skills and can play center field. Hopefully he becomes like Malik Hooker, but that is a tough ask.

Wint will not get 5th year if White returns.

Alibi, Hilliard and Bowen are players who come to mind who got 5th years. I can't think of any players who didn't get it this year. Wint is an injury away from starting at the bullet, plays well on special teams and had a very good spring game. You don't think he gets a 5th year??

This depth chart doesn’t really commit to a base defense. My hunch is that the Bullet will play first in the base meaning that OSU will start with three “safeties” and two corners. So I think that means Fuller, White, and Wade will all be on the field in the base defense.
