Welcome to the family! Make sure you get a good sized trophy case for all the hardware you're gonna win.

Is that his mom or his sister?

Remember, his Dad was an NFL player.  A hot Mom is not a huge surprise -

There's something about this kid I really like besides the obvious bloodline. He could be a standout center, but just the way he powers threw his blocks is impressive, which could make him pretty valuable as a guard too. I think he has massive upside. And he's rated to be a 3star seems laughable. Who rates these cats?

Sounds like we picked up another super sleeper recruit. Great interview, from the interview he clearly has the thought processes down well. That skill is critical of a center to run the O-line line ups, Hope he has / gets a lot of training in reading defenses, just another nice tool to have at his future position.

I think this young man will end up much better than his 3-star rating.  I am so happy for him.  He also sounds like a wonderful young man - really has his head on straight.  Yet another great ambassador for our great university.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

I wonder why his crystal ball predictions were 50/50 TTUN and OSU. Nothing about this interview and his actions indicate it was 50/50; you can't be 50% to TTUN when you commit on the spot to OSU.

Probably a case of TTUN bloggers/writers trying to sway his decision. Um, no.

I think probably because UM selector didn't think he'd get a Buckeye offer, if I had to guess.

I scored 4 TD's in one game for Polk High School, so I know a little about football. This guy will be a road grader on the slob unit.

Sounds like a hell of a kid. Glad he is joining the good guys!!!!

I don't like nice people. I like tough, honest people.

Can't imagine how much strength he's going to have once Mickey takes him in

I remember meeting Dave W a few times during his time with the Browns. He was always just super nice, really down to earth and never seemed to want to blow anyone off. He almost seemed shy, which is odd when you see a man of his stature. If his son is anything like the old man, we are definitely privileged to have this young man in S&G. 

Additional props to dad for dropping the NFL weight!

Sounds like a very well grounded young man - seems to be a common theme among Ohio State recruits under UFM and staff.

Congratulations again to Jack Wohlabaugh.

It's the terror of knowing what this world is about

Soon, he'll be a well grinded young man, too -

Wow, in print this kid seems like a really solid young man! I just get the feeling that he's really got his stuff together. Welcome to the family!

Thanks Birm.  When Coach Mick gets done with him he'll be another don't mess with Jack.

Dude seems like he comes from a great family and thats who Urban recruits. I dig the style of recruiting Meyer has brought to Columbus. (Note: I didn't mind Tress' style either).

I really like how Urban recruits the character kids and their families.
