Weight: 240 (1995), 235 (1994), 228 (1993)

1995 Media Guide: Fifth-year walk-on who figures to back up Greg Bellisari in the middle … tough, aggressive football player with a great attitude and work ethic … originally made the team in 1991 and has steadily worked his way up the depth chart … appeared in six games last year for a total of 29 minutes … finished the ’94 season with four tackles (recorded his first career tackle
against Houston and had his other three stops against Purdue) … played in two games (Rice and Pittsburgh) in 1993 for a total of four minutes … injured his right knee in the third week of the 1992 campaign and underwent season ending surgery.

1994 Media Guide: Fourth-year walk-on who projected himself into the two-deep with a great spring … figures to compete with Matt Christopher for playing time behind Lorenzo Styles … got a lot of extra reps in the spring while Christopher was sidelined with recurring headaches … tough, hard nosed, hard working player … the OSU coaching staff likes his approach to the game.

1993: Played two minutes against both Rice and Pittsburgh with no tackles.

1992: Injured his knee in the third week of practice and underwent surgery.

1991: Walked on in the fall and made the squad.

Other: Both of his parents are teachers in Dayton … his father is an Ohio State graduate, but played football at Ball State before completing his course work at OSU … lists Chris Spielman as the athlete he most admires … calls making the team at Ohio State as a walk-on his greatest thrill in athletics.
