1988 Media Guide: Jeff Uhlenhake is one of the top lineman in college football and a leading contender for All-America honors this year … big, strong, quick, tough and intelligent … has started 33 of a possible 36 games the past three years … played guard his first two years and won first-team all-Big Ten honors as a sophomore … had both knees “scoped” after his sophomore year and could not take part in spring practice, but still made the difficult transition to center with relative ease last fall … has worked hard to make himself a better player, concentrating this past spring on the long snap … OSU’s strongest lineman … bench presses 420, runs a 4.9 in the 40 and has a 28-inch vertical leap … an excellent leader.
