OL Josh Myers (Official Thread)

    Josh Myers Has Been Ready to Start Since Midseason


    That last time the Buckeyes had a returning starter at center was 2015, when Jacoby Boren was back for his second season as a starter.

    Since then, Ohio State has started Pat Elflein in 2016, Billy Price in 2017, and Michael Jordan this past season. All three ended up being named All-Americans, with the first two being Rimington Trophy winners.

    Under Urban Meyer, the Buckeye centers were never a question mark and always a strength. Even though Ohio State football is under new management now, the standards will remain the same.

    With Jordan’s departure to the NFL, however, another new name will need to step in. That name is expected to be Josh Myers, who was Jordan’s backup this past season as a redshirt freshman.

    Myers came to Ohio State as a blue chip tackle prospect, but was moved to center about a year ago because he had the athleticism and intelligence that the position requires. He had a solid spring battling with fifth-year senior Brady Taylor, but ultimately the job was won by Jordan in the summer.

    That didn’t stop Myers from working and progressing, however.

    “I think he’s ready right now,” current OSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa said in the days prior to the Rose Bowl. “As a matter of fact, we practiced a little bit in this bowl prep with him at center and Mike back at left guard, so he’s already there.”

    Had Jordan returned for his senior season, the plan was to move him back to guard where he played his first two seasons and then put Myers in at center.

    What has he done to earn his coach’s confidence?

    “Matured, man,” Studrawa said. “I’m telling you, his understanding of the offense, because it ain’t easy to snap a football in our offense and do the things that we ask him to do with a guy right there when you’ve never done that before. So it’s taken him some time. I’ve charted his snaps. I think he’s almost at 5,000 reps at the center position now, from practice in the spring, the summer, and camp and all of that stuff, so he’s ready.”

    Excited for Josh. I think he is going to be an excellent Center and carry on the tradition of All BIG Ten, All American Centers for the good guys.
