    Buckeye Football Freshman Focus: Linebacker Pete Werner


    When you look at Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class, Pete Werner might be a forgotten guy. He wasn’t one of the Buckeyes’ 10 early enrollees, and the fact that he comes from Indiana may cause some to overlook him.

    Don’t let the home state fool you, however, because Werner was one of the top high school linebackers in the nation last year.

    He was a First-Team All-State selection following a senior year at Indianapolis Cathedral High School where he tallied 64 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, and eight sacks, while missing three games.

    Originally committed to Notre Dame, Werner was a player that Urban Meyer and Luke Fickell set their sights on very early on.

    “We just kept hanging in there, hanging in there, because Luke Fickell loved him and so did I,” Meyer said on signing day. “We loved him. And then the tide started to change a little bit and we got him.”

    What to Like
    Pete Werner is listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, and when you see him on film you can see how rangy he is. Eventually he’ll fill out even more and the “rangy” description will give way to something more intimidating. He can run sideline-to-sideline with effective speed. He can close quickly without giving too much ground.

    When he is near the ball, he usually finds a way to bring it down.

    I'm interested in seeing where is his best LB position will be.
    Could go a long way towards providing not just depth, but be a force at LB. Coming into a class with Browning, its hard to not be overlooked, but he's definitely talented in his own right

    While not surprising if you have read the coaches glowing remarks on him, great news. Congrats Mr. Werner! Excited to hear that it looks like we have some good depth behind Baker, Worley and Booker, you definitely need it at the LB position.

    Pete Werner might already be emerging as one of Ohio State’s best special teams players after just one game as a regular contributor for the Buckeyes.

    The true freshman linebacker from Indianapolis didn’t see any playing time in Ohio State’s first three games of the season. He made his debut for the Buckeyes against UNLV, seeing playing time on both defense and special teams, but only substituted into that game after its outcome was well in hand. In Saturday’s 56-0 win against Rutgers, however, Werner saw regular playing time for the Buckeyes on both kickoffs and on punt block/return attempts, lining up as a first-team player on both special teams units.

    Werner ended up being a consistent presence around the football when he was on the field, especially in kickoff coverage, and was named as Ohio State’s special teams player of the game as a result.

    No player received more praise than Werner during Ohio State coach Urban Meyer’s latest press conference on Monday.

    "One of the most improved players on our team the last couple of weeks," Meyer said of Werner. "Buy stock in that guy for his career. He's got some good stuff going right now."

    Even though Werner wasn’t in Ohio State’s regular special teams lineups for its first four games of the season, it appears that his role in that phase of the game is set to only increase. That could open the door for Werner, who has played 26 late-game snaps at linebacker over the last two weeks, to see more significant playing time on defense, too.

    Entire article:

    Just sayin': I'm sure that isn't lost on anyone at Ohio State that a very good special team player, even if he doesn't play that much (or never even starts) on defense, can have a decent NFL career.
