We look at the depth and recruiting possibilities for OSU on the defensive line. John Simon, Johnathan Hankins and Mike Bennett lead the way for the Buckeyes.

Steve, I found a mistake on Bellamy.
He helped lead Aurora, Ohio, to a 13-2 record and the Division III state championship in 2008, winning the title with a 21-10 win over Columbus DeSales.
It wasn't DeSales, it was Columbus Eastmoor Academy. I was there. Bellamy was all over the place. I couldn't believe a kid that big could move that fast.
I'm rooting hard for williams. At least he'll hopefully be a good mentor to the news guys and maybe he'll end up being a good contributor.
I love simon bellamy and bennett playing ssde and moving inside on passing downs when they put Spence and Washington in to chase the qb
Thanks for the correction: (13-2) Aurora def. (13-2) Columbus Eastmoor Academy Score 21-10 in the D-III state title game in 2008. Bellamy had 9 tackles in that game. I will fix it.

No question, the potential is there. Now let's put it to use.
I think MV will keep this line rotating and fresh and that will be a good thing for us and a real bad thing for QBS on the other side of the ball. Our LB's have to be thinking, " I can't wait until the season starts". Leftovers!!!
Fantastic work Steve. I wondered if Cris Carter could be a poor man's Vince Woolfolk coming in to OSU. Was happy to see he switched over. Seemed to be very nimble for such a big guy. Now light a fire under him, keep (get ?) him in shape and turn him loose when he gets the opportunity. Nice to see an inner-city Cleveland Senate guy (other than Glenville) make a showing !
I cant wait until we release the Beast on the Big! !! After last season pay back is a B----!!!!!!
Hard for me to say anything definitively. OSU still doesn't have a PROVEN edge rusher. How ready will an 18 year old fresh out of high school be? They had a lot of stars next to their names but they haven't played a single snap of live college football. Nathan had one good year and now we don't know what we got after this surgery. I expect the line to be good enough due to the consistancy of past years. This will be the first season in a very long time without Jim Heacock.
I would say I am cautiously optimistic. I think next year is when this line truly shines. Just wish Simon were here for it.
Best defensive line in college football this year is Florida State.

At most schools Washington, Spence or Pittman would play immediately. Maybe ONE may see the field this year. I am still waiting to see meaningful time from guys like Steve Miller and Kenny Hayes. Loved them coming in ! I think Moore will be the one edged out on playing time.
It will helpto have Big Hank staying at DT and not going out to DE. I love the big guy, but it was painful sometimes watching him on the edge.
We are coming for you Bama!
