    Wray looked solid at LT! But it's a small sample.

    Really hoping he can play LT at the next level, would be huge to have him as a staple at the LT position in the future.

    Buckeye Football Freshman Focus: Offensive Tackle Max Wray


    Our Freshman Focus series now moves to offensive tackle Max Wray. Wray (6-6 289) comes to Ohio State from Franklin, Tennessee, where he played both right and left tackle for his Franklin High football team. The clips below are all at right tackle during his junior season and the entire highlight package can be found here.

    Wray is ranked the No. 9 offensive tackle in the 2018 class and is a tall, mobile offensive line prospect. He has already enrolled at Ohio State and is participating in winter workouts.

    Skilled as both a run blocker and pass blocker, Wray is going to have an opportunity to win a spot in the Buckeyes’ two-deep at one of the tackle spots this season.

    What to Like

    Wray has a tall tackle frame and is only going to get stronger. He already has experience as a pass blocker, which can be half the battle at times with high school offensive linemen. Wray isn’t just a mountain-of-a-man plodder on the offensive line. He will move and run and can provide a blocker almost from one hash to the other.

    NOT ALL RECRUITERS. "Everybody negative recruits" is a common college football cliché that I have even repeated on these very pages.

    According to five-star OL signee Max Wray, who, unlike me, got recruited out of high school, disagrees with that notion. Everyone used negative recruiting with him—except Alabama and Ohio State.


    The Buckeyes planted that seed and then reaffirmed it by the way they conducted themselves during the recruiting process. Wray, a 4-star tackle from Franklin, Tenn., reopened his recruitment in March 2017 after originally committing to Georgia in March 2016. Ohio State offered him three days after he de-committed, and Wray said he was impressed with the way the Buckeyes made everything about their own program instead of other schools.

    “Everyone but Ohio State and Alabama,” Wray told Land of 10 about the schools that used negative recruiting. “Everyone is scared of Nick Saban. Everyone. Everyone says, ‘Alabama does this, but we don’t because we’re better.’ It was Alabama this, Alabama that, and Ohio State was the only school that never said a word about Alabama or any other school.”

    It's hilarious thinking about six-figure SEC coaches trying to manipulate teenagers into thinking their program is superior to Alabama's despite the lack of College Football Playoff trophies.

    I do find it hard to believe no Buckeye assistant has ever muttered a negative word about Michigan, but Ohio State has only lost The Game three times since the turn of the millennium. Sometimes that's all the smack talk you need.

    Also good to see Ohio State take the high road against Alabama. Yeah, you can pro if you play at 'Bama. But you can do that at Ohio State, too. And 'Bama can't compete with OSU's academic profile or alumni network.

    I would wager that during tOSU 2-10-1 run (sorry Coop), that there were some negatives dished out by Buckeye coaches. When you're atop (or close to), then one can be more magnanimous. Ultimately, methinks that negative recruiting hurts the recruiter, but never having been sought after as a college athlete, couldn't really say. Daughter was, however, although I must say that most coaches used the positives of their schools more. Personally, am proud of the Buckeyes for being 'positive forward', rather than back-biting other teams. Thanks Woody, Tress, Urb, and now Day, to continue on that tradition.

    Go Bucks!

    Why doesn't Max Wray get into games. Did not see him in any games this season including the Maryland game today in the 2nd half.
