    AGreed, he'll need a RS year to learn pass protection schemes. He'll get eaten alive in college against even decent pass rushers. He has the talent, but needs to work and reps to get to the level to see the field

    The 11W Community Interview is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. You submit the questions and then we pass them on to the biggest names in the world of Ohio State athletics.

    Miamisburg five-star offensive tackle Josh Myers is the second-longest tenured member of Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class, having committed to the Buckeyes in January 2015; only five-star cornerback Shaun Wade has been on board longer.

    The 6-foot-6, 306-pound Myers led the Vikings to their first 10-win season as a senior and was named a USA TODAY and U.S. Army All-American as a result. He will enroll in classes at Ohio State on Monday and is expected to compete for the starting right guard position as a true freshman with Billy Price's move to center.

    But first, he sits down and talks with our readers about the recruiting process, breakfast toppings and more in the 11W Community Interview.

    Who has been the most instrumental person in your life helping push you to reach your goals?

    JM: "My immediate family has always helped me the most with reaching my goals. My mom was an All-American basketball player and has helped me with footwork as much as anyone. My two brother and my dad really helped with the technical points of football and being an offensive lineman. They have always encouraged me to be the best that I can be."

    After being trained by strength coach Mickey Marotti, how many tires do you hope to be able to flip simultaneously?

    JM: "I'm not sure! Coach Mick is amazing though."

    What they mean is he was average in shirt and shorts during the week. Because when the pads went on, he mauled people during the game.

    I don't think any of the negatives are a surprise. His HS system was a hindrance to him growing as an all around blocker. A year minimum in OSU's system working with coach Stud, and Myers could be great in the interior, he may need another year to be ready for OT

    I'd be surprised if he ever plays OT. He's an interior lineman. Not sure he has the lateral quickness to contain pass-rushing DEs but he certainly has the strength and technique to maul DTs.

    Josh dominated the SPARQ events so how is he "behind the curve" athletically?

    He had a 4.49 shuttle at the SPARQ event so his lateral quickness should be just fine. I'm not sold his athleticism is what's holding him back from being an OT. I think he is just so behind the curve in technique that it makes him look slow

    That too.
    But I thought I read during the Army AA practices that he was having problems at OT with athletic DEs. When he was moved inside to play C/G he excelled. Most likely due to him primarily run blocking in HS

    He'll be fine. He needs more reps in pass blocking. His athleticism shouldn't be in question and everyone is going to be reassured shortly. He just doesnt have the time perfecting pass blocking technique yet. He can probably play all five positions on the O line during his Ohio State tenure but starting out those elite DE's that have been perfecting their pass rushing are going to give him fits because he doesnt have all of techniques to combat those moves yet. He will. He gets hands on, it's over.

    Miamisburg threw the ball all of 5 times a season...I would have been shocked if Josh's pass blocking looked good at the AA game. He is plenty athletic, just needs to get comfortable in his pass pro. Coaching up an OL to pass block is much different than doing it and you have to get plenty of reps actually doing it. I think Josh can certainly play tackle, although he needs time to adapt. If he plays right away, he probably would play on the interior...Jordan did that this year and imo, he is a future tackle.
