Soccer may reign as the athletic competition of the summer for many sports enthusiasts, but Urban Meyer and his dedicated coaching staff have been gearing up for their 2015 season. Meyer and his team have secured Ramsey, New Jersey player Kevin Feder as their tenth commitment for their burgeoning 2015 class.
The six foot nine, 305 pound Feder had previously committed to play for the University of Miami at the beginning of the year. He wanted to be absolutely sure about his choice, and this is what led him to review his options a bit further. The Buckeyes had always peaked his curiosity, and Feder impressed the Ohio State coaching staff during his campus visit.
The Buckeyes made an offer before Feder left Ohio, and they recognized his potential despite his arbitrary star ranking. Feder suffered with a broken leg in his junior year, and his return to the playing field consisted of mostly defensive action.
Feder was a freshman player for Parsippany Hills and transferred to Don Bosco Prep when he was a sophomore. Feder played a minimal amount of time as a sophomore, and his junior year was overshadowed by his leg injury. His unique combination of skill, speed, and size made him worth considering despite his challenges, and analyst Marc Givler of Rivals.com was one of many observers to be impressed by Feder's recent Buckeye camp performance.
Givler noted the exceptional footwork displayed by Kevin Feder, and he suspects this offensive lineman will sharpen his technique as he gains experience on the playing field. Feder is big, but it is his athletic ability that sets him apart. He won the recent Smokehouse sprint, and he may reach seven feet in height before he is done growing. The Buckeyes are off to a tremendous start in acquiring Feder, and 2015 may be a big season for Ohio State.
