KC & The Offensive Line Band … Who can we expect Ohio State to make intense push for when it comes to Class of 2014 offensive linemen? One name for sure is Kc McDermott, the 6-foot-7 ½, 285-pounder from West Palm Beach (Fla.) Central. According to 247Sports, McDermott has a 97 rating and is the No. 6 tackle nationally.
McDermott tops the offensive line board?
One source close to the Bucks staff told us recently that they are big fans and he could be the No. 1 offensive lineman on their 2014 board. Another name to focus on is Braden Smith, a 6-6, 282-pound prospect from Olathe (Kan.) South Sr. that 247Sports has rated even higher than McDermott (Smith: 98 rating, No. 2 OT nationally.)
We’re told the interest is mutual and you can expect Smith to schedule a visit to Columbus once his junior season comes to a close. Stay tuned …
