2005 Media Guide: One of a group of promising young defensive lineman that dot the Ohio State roster … has not seen any action his first two years, but hopes to change that this year and lock up a spot in the defensive-line rotation … certainly has the size and strength to be a force inside … coaches are hoping he can help in goal line and short yardage situations … is the big tackle that good teams feature and has surprising agility for his size … has a chance to be very good.
2004 Media Guide: First name is pronounced SHE-on … was part of the 2003 freshman class but joined the Buckeyes late and was redshirted … has a bright future … has size and athletic ability (played basketball alongside LeBron James in high school) and should add quality depth to the youthful defensive line in 2004.
High School: Played on both offense and defense in high school … named to the All-Summit County team as both a junior and senior … won first-team all-Ohio honors in Division IV and played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl … finished his senior season with 84 tackles and 13 sacks, that on the heels of 67 stops and nine sacks as a junior … also a standout basketball player for the nationally-ranked Irish … bench presses 300 pounds.
Personal: Is the son of Lee and Debra Cotton … lists the Cleveland Cavaliers as his favorite professional team … writes music as a hobby … the 2003 Fiesta Bowl is his top football memory from a year ago … would like to be on the OSU rifle team if not playing football for the Buckeyes.
