Ohio State Football 2013 Fall Camp: Taylor Decker looking to make an impact on offensive line

The Ohio State Buckeyes are gearing up for the 2013 season with high expectations.

Their offensive line, eventhough they lost Reid Fragel to the NFL, is as sturdy as it has been in awhile with four starters returning and sophomore Taylor Decker looking to make an impact at right tackle.

At 6’7, 315-pounds, Decker is hulking and very powerful. The Vandalia-Butler High School grad played in all 12 games last season for Ohio State.

Taylor is seeking to replace the beforementioned Fragel, an NFL Draft pick in the 7th round by the Cincinnati Bengals.

The other members of the offensive line include senior Jack Mewhort at left tackle, senior Andrew Norwell at left guard, senior Corey Linsley at center and Sr. Marcus Hall at right guard.

Going into the 2012 season, the Buckeyes offensive line was considered its weakest line as the line underachieved under former line coach Jim Bollman. But the unit came together under the tutelage of Ed Warriner and finished the season as the best in the Big Ten.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Ohio State Spring Football wrapup with Mike Brewster, offensive lineman

The Ohio State Buckeyes Spring Football Season has come and gone and the offense can brag that it beat the defense, 59-27 before 44,276 in Ohio State last Saturday.

The battle for the starting quarterback position due to Terrelle Pryor’s five-game suspension to start the season, seems to be in the hands of Braxton Miller who outplayed everybody who was competing against him.

Miller had four possessions of the football and led the offense on scoring drives three of the four times. He directed a 92-yard touchdown drive, threw a 15-yard TD pass to end another and avoided sacks, turnovers and made plays just like the elusive Pryor.

Any questions about him, was answered in the game and he seems ready to play right away.

There are still questions about other positions on the team, especially the offensive line. Plenty of questions going into fall camp. Mike Adams will be serving a five-game suspension, plus two starters and two key backups are gone. This group lacks numbers especially this spring. There are four freshman coming in the fall, but there will only be six players with experience when the opening game gets underway. One of the new players will have to occupy the left tackle position, the quarterback’s blind spot.

Center Michael Brewster is back to anchor the line as a four-year starter. Two new players who have emerged this spring are guards Jack Mewhort and Corey Linsley.

Copeting at the all-important left tackle spot is Andrew Norwell and Marcus Hall who are experienced and played very solid this spring.

Ohio State OT Marcus Hall to redshirt in 2010

Ohio State sophomore offensive tackle Marcus Hall will be redshirting during the 2010 football season. The 6’5, 320 pound graduate of Glenville High School in Cleveland, played in nine games in 2009 for Ohio State as a true freshman. Hall will still have three more seasons of eligibility with the Buckeyes.

Marcus Hall makes a statement about his having to redshirt:

“Due to the fact that I didn’t satisfactorily complete my academic responsibilities, I will be reshirting during the 2010 season. I’m looking at this in a positive way-as an opportunity to get better on and off the field, to get stronger in the classroom, and be better prepared all-around for the rest of my time at Ohio State. I will still be practicing every day, not just to help myself get better, but to help my teammates get better.”

Springtime means Ohio State Football is Back! Day 1

Jim Tressel talks to the media (

It wasn’t too long ago that  the Buckeyes were heading off  to the 2010 Rose Bowl to play the explosive Oregon Ducks and we were all wondering  if they could stop the recent string of disappointing Bowl losses and if Terrelle Pryor would respond on the national stage and if the Buckeyes would finally get the national media off their backs?

Well, all of those questions were answered on that January 1 game in Pasadena, California: the Ducks were shut down; the bowl losses were put to a screeching halt; Terrelle Pryor performed like he was a Heisman candidate and the Buckeyes gained the national media’s respect once again.

Now, spring is upon us and OSU Football is back in the news for the rest of April and still there are questions that will have to be answered in 14 practices and the spring game on April 24 in Ohio Stadium.

One thing about Ohio State football, they remake or reload, not rebuild.  The questions center around offensive tackle, Terrelle Pryor’s knee, the defensive line and the safeties.

Expectations are very sky high coming off a fifth-straight Big Ten title, an 11-2 season, a Rose Bowl victory over Oregon and an 8-game home schedule and only 4 road games.

Who will play Left tackle to replace Jim Cordle?

This position has been a question mark for years. Jim Cordle ended up playing there out of necessity.  There are plenty of candidates in the wings: Mike Adams, Andrew Miller and Marcus Hall.  Coach Jim Tressel told us on Thursday that position aren’t really won in the spring because they have to wait for the recruits to come to camp in August.

Who replaces Kurt Coleman and Anderson Russell at safety?

Jermale Hines is one starter but there are other players to consider. Ohrian Johnson, Tyler Moeller, Jamie Woods and Nate Oliver. There is no clear cut starter amonst those players.

Is Terrelle Pryor’s left knee a concern?

This has been the talk of the town since Pryor suffered the partially torn ligament last October and had arthroscopic surgery in early February.  But it seems that Pryor is ready to participate in spring drills. But expect alot of reps from backup quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Kenny Guiton, Jr. which can’t be all bad because they need to be ready for the fall anyway. Remember, a backup player is one injury from playing anyway.
