2003 Media Guide: Nick Mangold is a highly thought of young player who is ticketed for extended playing time this year on the heels of an impressive freshman campaign … heads into the fall at No. 2 on the depth chart behind Alex Stepanovich at center … may be too good to keep out of the lineup if he continues to improve … will certainly add to the depth and versatility of what is shaping up to be a deep and talented offensive line … is a physical player with a great attitude … has a bright future and will be a permanent fixture up front after Stepanovich departs.

2002 Season: Was one of two true freshman to see extensive action along the offensive line … was impressive from the beginning of fall camp and quickly established himself as the backup behind Stepanovich … made his collegiate debut in the second game of the season against Kent State … worked hard throughout the course of the season and has impressed the coaching staff with his quick grasp of the offense … played significant minutes down the stretch when the game was on the line, including the Purdue, Illinois, Michigan and Miami games … his emergence allowed Stepanovich to also play guard.

2002 Media Guide: Was a first-team Division III all-state selection by the Associated Press … started on both sides of the ball since his sophomore season and earned a reputation for being able
to dominate the line of scrimmage no matter where he lines up … considered one of the top offensive linemen in the state of Ohio and rated by Rivals.com as the nation’s third best center prospect … selected to play in the All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, following the regular season … also a standout student … is the son of Vern and Therese Mangold … high school
coach – Ed Domsitz … born Jan. 13, 1984.
