MalikBarrow

Defensive specialist Malik Barrow has just committed to playing for Ohio State. It was a decision that became clear to him following his meeting with Coach Urban Meyer which also including his parents. He's going to Columbus for college to tick off everything on his checklist: brilliant coaches, a competitive football program, and an excellent school. He is extremely pleased with his choice.

Barrow watched the Buckeyes play a Spring football game with his family to celebrate his decision but it wasn't his first time on the campus. He went to OSU last year during summer to participate in a training camp. It was there that the coaching staff first saw his skills up-close.

At Ohio State, he will be playing defensive tackle.

JamelDean

Jamel Dean was one of the early enrollees of the Ohio State program so his entry into the Buckeyes was expected by many. However, OSU's medical staff did not give him the clearance he needed to join the team. Thus he was effectively disqualified and people have been asking why ever since. Some were quick to defend the medical staff's decision while others accused them of playing a numbers game.

Coach Urban Meyer has finally made his comment on the matter to put the issue at rest. He said that he was definitely not happy when he heard about the DQ either but he went on to defend Ohio State in their decision. For his part, he was simply trying to help Dean with an athletic scholarship.

Ohio State Comes Back To Spring Camp

SPORTS BRONCOS-DOLPHINS 24 FL

Spring break offers much needed rest for everyone but getting back into the swing of things tends to be a little tricky. The Ohio State football team certainly felt the rust when they had their first practice after the break. They were in full pads Tuesday morning in Spring Camp as Coach Urban Meyer looked on in dismay. He acknowledged that the performance was not up to par with the offensive line being particularly uninspiring.

Yet the coach is still upbeat on his team, even providing additional rest for guys who have seen a lot of action in previous games and practice sessions. Meyer says that they are being more sensitive to the needs of student-athletes and are trying to reduce the risk of injury. The limited practice time applies to those in the 2000-rep club. Among them are Joey Bosa, Tyvis Powell, Josh Perry, Nick Vannett, Taylor Decker and Pat Elflein.

DevinSmithWisconsin

Devin Smith finished the season with a team high 931 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns and is now being considered a first round pick in the Spring NFL draft. Always the big player receiver, he really caught fire against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, catching 3 touchdowns on 4 passes for 137 yards. Cardale Jones was starting for the first time and having Smith out there catching big touchdowns, made his work a lot easier. Smith is now at the NFL combine and is having a hard time believing how high he has moved up the board for a number of teams.

Cardale Jones Had the Best Three Games He’ll Ever Have

Cardale Jones took the responsible route this week when he declared that he would return to Ohio State instead of taking advantage of his great play for the final three games of the season and entering the NFL draft. Beating Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship, beating Alabama and then winning the National Title against Oregon is a three game run that will more than likely not happen for another OSU quarterback any time soon. But Cardale valued his education and the opportunity to compete for the starting position this coming season. He began 2014 as the third string quarterback before Braxton Miller and JT Barrett were unable to play due to injury.

Ohio State and Beating the Oregon Ducks

OhioStateOregon

Ohio State has a good chance to beat the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship game Monday night for a number of reasons. Their game plan is capable to scoring on any team, their defensive line is capable of stopping the run, they can control the speed of the game, their coaching is outstanding, and they seem to be the team of destiny this year.

Urban Meyer has been in the program with the same offensive and many of the same defensive coaches for 3 years now. They know how they want to stop teams and they know how to score on teams. Oregon is capable of scoring a lot of points but so are the Buckeyes. Tom Herman’s last game with the team should be a great offensive display utilizing all the weapons they have put together recruiting kids from across the country. For the last two years they have put up 45+ points a game and over 510 yards, all built around what their quarterbacks can do. The plays are selective after much debate with all the coaches for that squad involved. And the results have been great. The basic approach is a power run game with spread were teams after defend the entire field.
