2001 Media Guide: Ivan Douglas was expected to be the third tackle and the No. 1 backup on both sides this year, but missed spring practice with a blood clot in his lung and may not be able to play in the fall … his loss depletes an already paper thin area and leaves the Buckeyes with just two tackles (Adrien Clarke and Tyson Walter) with any game experience … will not play in the fall unless given a complete clean bill of health by the OSU medical staff.

2000 Season: Started the first two games at left tackle and then backed up Clarke for the remainder of the season … saw action in nine games … played 12 minutes against South Carolina.

2000 Media Guide: Ivan Douglas continues to improve and work toward earning playing time after being placed on scholarship last spring. He comes from a highly-successful program and is one in a long line of massive Ohio State lineman on the roster. “Ivan has really good size,” George Belu, offensive line coach, said. “He needs to work on technique and get lower in his run blocking. I think it’s only a matter of time before he gets his technique down. He can be a very good player for us.”

1999: Redshirted.

1999 Media Guide: Ivan Douglas was put on scholarship this spring and practiced through his first spring drills as a Buckeye. Offensive line coach Mike Jacobs: “We are very happy to have Ivan Douglas on the playing field. He comes from a state champion high school program and he is massive.

Personal: Played on powerful Cleveland Benedictine teams that won the state championship when Douglas was a junior in 1996 and went 10-1 in 1997. The son of Roxie Douglas and Cornelius Douglas. Born March 17, 1980.
