Major: Education (1987-91)

Weight: 280 (1991), 285 (1989-90), 290 (1987)

1991 Media Guide: Will start on the right side … the Buckeyes’ most experienced returning lineman, playing a total of 259 minutes and starting all 12 games at strong tackle last year … was surprisingly consistent last year in his first season as a starter … strong, hard-working player who wants to excel … bench presses 420 pounds, squats 577 and has great lower body strength … should be one of the leaders up front in 1990 … intelligent player.

1990 Media Guide: Will take over at strong tackle, succeeding Tim Moxley … good spring has the coaching staff excited about his potential … serious, dedicated athlete who works hard at getting better … one of the Buckeyes’ strongest linemen … bench presses 420 and squats 577 … quick and mobile and a good drive blocker because of his tremendous lower body strength and leg drive … one of the most consistent performers in the spring … only shortcoming at this point is a lack of experience.

1989: Played a total of 45 minutes behind Moxley.

1988: Did not play due to injuries.

1988 Media Guide: Will be used on the strong side … tremendous lower body strength and leg drive … with his size, should become an excellent pass blocker.

1987: Redshirted.

HIGH SCHOOL: A four-year starter and an all-Ohio selection both as a junior and senior … named MVP of his conference as a senior … helped lead Grand Valley to the state playoffs in 1986 … won the state discus title in track as a senior.

PERSONAL: First name is Mike, but prefers Mick … an avid weightlifter … enjoys playing golf … admires Jack Lambert and Howie Long … favorite foods are steak and lasagna … favorite movie is The Empire Strikes Back … top football thrill is when his Grand Valley team made the Ohio playoffs his senior year.
