Kyle Trout: Future Ohio State Football Star
Kyle Trout is an offensive tackle who has been recruited by the Ohio State Buckeyes to play college football from 2014 onwards in Columbus. The six foot six inch, 290 pound giant has made the decision to remain in his home state for his football career after high school.
The native of Lancaster, Ohio, is currently performing for his local high school, Lancaster High. His skill as an offensive lineman was something that the Ohio State Buckeyes had targeted, hoping to plug the gaps in what had been an overall very strong recruitment process in 2013.
Tout’s talents had made him a target for other colleges apart from Ohio State. The youngster also received offers from Bowling Green, Indiana, Cincinnati, Michigan State and several others. Despite his size and bulk, Trout is surprisingly light on his feet, and possesses a mobility that could see Ohio State Buckeyes fans watching a vastly improved left side of their offensive line in years to come.
The reasons for Trout choosing Ohio State were about more than simply staying close to home. The player himself has indicated in interviews that he wants to be a part of the winning culture that Urban Meyer has developed, which saw them go 12-0 last season. Trout also has a former team-mate already in place on the roster, Luke Roberts, while he has also admitted that the pull of working with coach Ed Warriner proved very strong too.
With Trout keen to make up for a lot of time spent on losing sides during his junior high and high school careers, football fans could be seeing a future NFL great in action when he starts to play for the Buckeyes in 2014.
