Lets not forget we arent even a week removed from the NSD for the 2013 class. As I told you all last Friday this weekend would be a big one for the 2014 class as some of the biggest and best JRs from across the nation were in town to take in the Buckeye Nation experience. I had a feeling there would be at least one commit come out of the weekend but by the end of Sunday there were multiple commits but each one of them is special and deserves their own post so that is what you will get today. So without further adieu here is the info on commit no. 1 from this past weekend…..
Kyle Trout is a 6’6″ 285 lbs 4 star OT from Lancaster, Ohio. Kyle is one of those local kids that Buckeye fans love to get behind. With OL being such an important part of the 2014 class OSU will prob take 4-6 OLmen in the class and already has 2 top notch kids committed. Kyle fills a large need as he projects to be a Left Tackle and will protect the blind side of Braxton and his fellow QBs. The Giant Ginger as you can tell from the picture above continues Urban Meyers ideal OLman body style of tall and LEAN and athletic guys who can move. No longer will OSU just look for big and fat uglies to take up space. 247sports ranks him a 4 star and the 130th best prospect in the country. Rivals ranks him a 4 star and doesnt have rankings for 2014 yet. Scout ranks him a 4 star and the 16th best OT in the country. ESPN ranks him a 4 star and on their ESPN 150 Watch List. Below you can see his JR year highlights.
