1 Year All- American

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by NOTREDAMECHIEF, Apr 15, 2004.

  1. ND has a former DE that was switched to TE this year which (would be his last)
    and is really making waves at spring practice. Has Ohio State ever had a one year wonder who switched postions his last year and then made All- America?

    Cie Grant is the closest I can think of, but my tOSU history isn't very good.

    Cie Grant didn't make All American (Matt Wilhelm did). Gamble almost did it in 2002 and would've done so with a mid-season position switch vice a pre-season switch (he did make all Big Ten that year, though).

    It may be a bit early to be annointing the "new" TE a potential All American...

    ShakerBuck: Will Allen didn't switch positions before the start of his AA season. NDCHIEF stipulated a pre-season switch in his question...

    Ray Griffin?
     
  7. Mili-I doubt he will be an All- American but I just wondered if it had ever happened. ND would have to be good for that to happen! LOL!

    I do think ND had one as Andy Heck switched to tackle for one year and made AA.

    I do think ND had one as Andy Heck switched to tackle for one year and made AA.

    Was he offensive or defensive tackle? If he switched from guard (offense) or end (defense) then that essentially isn't "switching positions".

    I'm sure there are a lot of OLs that have switched to other spots on the OL.

    Yeah, if OL switching positions on the line count(which seems silly to me), LeCharles Bentley is one. He played all over the line his junior year but Coach T put him at center in 01 and he even won the Rimmington Award for best center.(or maybe Cooper put him there the year before, I don't recall)
     
  11. AHH Not much of a move for Heck as he went from TE to tackle but it did make him a first round draft choice and a long NFL career.

    I didn't mean that Cie was an All-American just that he had switched and was probably all-something team.

    exhawg is right. Cie was a member of the "I'm all over Dorsey's scrawny ass" team. He was a unanimous choice.
