Major: Undecided (1988-90)

Weight: 280 (1989-90), 290 (1988)

1990 Media Guide: Outstanding nose guard prospect who needs experience to develop his full potential … did not practice or play as a freshman and logged just six minutes of playing time last year, so he is still in the early learning stages of his career … started to play well at the end of spring practice and coaches are hopeful he will continue to show improvement in the fall … has surprising quickness for a player his size, but OSU coaches would prefer to see him play at about 270 … considered one of the top high school players in the country as a senior.

1989: Played in the first four games, but a series of injuries kept him out the rest of the year.

1989 Media Guide: A promising young player who had to sit out last year … coaches are anxious to see how quickly he can come back from the forced layoff … excellent prospect at the nose because of his combination of size and quickness … one of the top high school players in the country as a senior and the object of nationwide recruiting attention, but at this point an unknown commodity.

1988: Unable to play or practice.

HIGH SCHOOL: A first-team all-state pick as a senior … a standout on both offense and defense … rated as one of the best offensive line prospects in the nation … a two-year captain … lists his greatest thrill as recovering a fumble for a touchdown as a senior … also won the state shot put title.

PERSONAL: Nickname is ”Big Daddy” … wants to major in broadcasting.
