1991 Media Guide: The Buckeyes’ most experienced inside linebacker … has played in all 32 games the past three years and has 12 starts (all in 1989) to his credit … will contend with Tom Lease for the inside spot opposite Steve Tovar … OSU’s No. 3 linebacker last fall, finishing with 38 tackles … top showing was eight tackles against Wisconsin … also had a team-high six stops against Northwestern … had his second career interception in last year’s season opener against Texas Tech … not real big as linebackers go, but tough and very competitive … has worked hard to condition himself for the rigors of Big Ten football.
