    The Insiders is reporting that Georgia OL/DL prospect Brian Truelove is currently expressing interest in Ohio State; his top five schools are Oregon (offered), Ohio State, Iowa, Washington and Ole Miss; even though his father is a Georgia Tech fan, Brian appears to have little or no interest in his home state schools.

    Brian's comments on Ohio State, which he plans to visit this summer:

    Brian plays both OL and DL, but wants to play DL in college.

    Note Brian's bench press number - that is not a misprint - his 42 reps (at 185 pounds) occurred at the Atlanta Nike camp, and was the best performance of any Nike camper nationwide.

    You gotta love his attitude about OSU.

    Agreed. It's amazing how a single e-mail can get a kid interested in a school. Props to the coaching staff!

    Excellent news! I wonder whether he gets an offer....

    Are we going after this kid as an OL or DL? It seems that he doesn't want to play OL that much.

    He sounds like a good one to get, and I hope he grows a couple of inches to 6'4". As of now, I think 6'2" could be the reason why the lack of many big offers. 42 reps at 185 is very impressive indeed. I would think he plays (OL vs. DL) where ever he can get on the field the quickest. I would like to hear what happens during camp and se what the coaches will do.

    Looks like a future center to me.

    yeah he looks like a center to me as well. Bentley is only 6'2 or so and strong as an Ox....but will this kid get pissed if OSU asks him to snaps some balls or get on the O Line...It seemed that he was SO surpised when Iowa asked him to do so. He also stated that it had been a few years since he played OL...if that is the case I am wondering why he is listed at both positions.

    He reminds me of PSU '04 recruit AQ Shipley. They seem to be similar in strength and size. AQ was adamant that he wanted to play on the Dline but many teams, including tOSU, recruited him for the Oline (specifically center). He went to home state PSU where they promised him a place on the Dline.

    Hopefully Brian is more flexible about what position he plays then he expressed in that article.

    Actually, at 6'2", he's just about the right height for a DT (same height as top-rated Callahan Bright, BTW); tall DT's tend to get "stood up"; it's much easier for a shorter DT to stay low.

    Good point LJB. How tall were Will Smith and Kenny Peterson when they played here?

    Truelove lists Ohio State in his top 5 but has Oregon listed as his leader. He will be visiting Oregon in late June and would like to commit to a school some time this summer. He already has an offer from the Ducks.

    Truelove was listed as the #70 prospect in the Peach State by UGASports.com

    Looking forward to seeing where Stephen Gowland ends up on the list. After his scUM comment yesterday anything below #1 will be unacceptable :wink:

    Will Smith and Kenny Peterson are both listed at 6'3" on current NFL info. I don't know if they were the same when they enrolled at tOSU.
