    SKULL SESSION: JAMESON WILLIAMS IS WAITING HIS TURN, DAWAND JONES IS SHEDDING WEIGHT, AND AARON CRAFT PREPARES FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL

    BIG THANOS TRIMMING DOWN.
    Ohio State's footballers of the future could not be more different than Dawand Jones and Jameson Williams, who don't even look like they should be playing the same sport, to an outsider.

    Regardless, the Buckeyes are stoked to have them both. And like Williams, Dawand is stoked to be a Bucekye – even if he's going to have to wait his turn for a bit.

    "I didn't really know until Northwestern," Jones said. "We had Nick (Petit-Frere) in there and I was getting reps that week. It was crazy just the build-up to it and they called my name and it's freezing cold at Northwestern and I was shivering. And I was like, 'All right, I've got this,' but I was nervous, I'm not going to lie to you. But I got in and it was my moment and it just happened and it's been on ever since."

    ...

    "Right now I just want to keep losing weight and get to the point where I can compete for a starting job," Jones said. "So, I just want to keep working hard to get to where I need to be.

    "I dropped 25 pounds after I got here. I weighed 385, which obviously isn't good for an offensive lineman. So, it felt good to drop all that weight and now I just want to keep it going. My knees feel better and my back. It's just a load off of you."

    They've both had strikingly similar years if you equate their God-given gifts – Jones' size and Williams' speed. Only, Williams' ain't trying to shed some of his speed.

    Agreed, and its even better that he's progressing at a faster rate than many envisioned. We may see him on the 2 deep at worst next season.

    Who was the OL that Tress used to put in the backfield?

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    I believe you may be thinking of Andree Tyree playing TE in The Game circa 2004?

    Please God someone put a bug in Day's ear about getting this guy in on short yardage or the goal line with a running start at someone from Clemson. The devastation would be glorious!

    Tyree was used as a TE in The Game ‘05.

    Brandon Joe was a monster used at RB in ‘04 but I don’t recall him ever being an OL. Could be wrong.

    Well, in as much as the original lineman as fullback was William "the Refrigerator" Perry, Clemson 81-84, using Dawand in such a capacity would be fun. Although, I think that was Ditka's idea, not Danny Ford's.
