    Morning Constitutional: What Is a Typical Day Like For An OSU Freshman?


    There are six Ohio State freshman football players who enrolled last month and in so doing they agreed to have their daily routines completely changed and entirely regimented.

    Workouts, classes, tutoring, more workouts.

    It all probably sounds delightful to you.

    “Yeah, they kind of take away all of our free time right now,” Mentor tackle Ryan Jacoby said. “But once you show that you can handle yourself in the classroom and you do everything you need to do, then they pull back on the tutoring and mentoring. But coming in new, you’ve got to prove it to them.”

    Until that time, however, there is a path that requires following. It’s probably the only way to make sure they don’t get overwhelmed along the way.
    “Typical day? Well, it depends,” Jacoby said. “You work out at 7 or 8 or 10. So if I’m working out at 7, I’m waking up at 5:45, leaving at 6, getting here at 6:15. Eat, get ready, on the scale by 6:59 for a 7 a.m. workout. Then you work out until about 8 or 8:30. Shower. Eat. Go home. My first class is 12:40 most days. You go to class, and then tutoring and then class and then mentoring and then tutoring. So you get out about 7 or 8 and then you’ve got the rest of the night to do what you want because you finished most of your homework in tutoring.”

    Of course, the days are so long that the nights become less appealing. It keeps the focus where it needs to be for young athletes, even if it sounds a little bit less than fun.

    Congrats Ryan! Special powers indeed. He actually looks way more put together physically than I thought he'd be at this point. Kid's obviously putting in work.

    2019 in review: Jacoby did not play any snaps as a freshman.

    A look toward 2020: Because Jacoby didn’t play at all as a true freshman, it’s highly unlikely that he earns a starting spot next season. More than likely, he’ll be in the mix to back up Wyatt Davis or whichever teammate starts at left guard. The Mentor native first could have to show what he can do late in games before getting a shot to start.

    Long-term outlook: As the offensive line room continues to get filled up with former four-star and five-star prospects, the competition to start in future years will continue to stiffen. Jacoby, the No. 7 Ohioan in the 2019 class, will have to progress relatively quickly to stay ahead of the incomers.

    Ohio State 2019 Class Report — OL Ryan Jacoby


    Ryan Jacoby played his high school football at Mentor High School where he was a 4-star prospect and ranked the No. 23 tackle in the 2019 recruiting class.

    Nationally, he was ranked the No. 283 player, while in the state of Ohio, he was the No. 7 player overall.

    Jacoby signed with the Buckeyes over offers from Boston College, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Oregon, Bowling Green, and others.

    He was an All-State left tackle in high school.

    2019 Season

    Jacoby played tackle for his entire high school career, but came to Ohio State knowing that he could end up anywhere along the offensive line. At 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, Jacoby was moved to guard not too long after his arrival.

    An early enrollee, Jacoby was given time to acclimate to his new position, though it did not lead to any playing time in 2019. He redshirted, as most offensive linemen do.

    Now What For Ryan Jacoby?

    Every team needs versatile offensive linemen, and that could very well be what Ryan Jacoby is for this Ohio State team in 2020 and beyond.

    While he plays guard currently, he has enough size to kick outside to tackle if need be. His mobility will continue to increase at a Buckeye, which could allow him to play anywhere along the offensive line.

    Ohio State has relied on versatile offensive linemen forever, and just in the last 15 years or so there have been guys like Jim Cordle, Jack Mewhort, Billy Price, Michael Jordan, and Branden Bowen who have started at multiple positions throughout their respective careers.
