    Urban Meyer announces Blake Haubeil will be Ohio State’s starting kicker
    Could this be the end of Sean Nuernberger’s time as the Buckeyes’ starter?
    By Matt Tamanini@BWWMatt Oct 18, 2018, 12:44pm EDTSHARE

    Sean Nuernberger, meet Wally Pipp. Wally Pipp, meet Sean Nuernberger.

    On his radio show on Thursday, Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer announced that kicker Blake Haubeil would be the starter for the second week in a row. The sophomore was a last-minute substitution in last week’s game against Minnesota after redshirt senior Nuernbergerstrained his groin during warmups.

    In his first collegiate action kicking field goals, Haubeil went 3-for-3, and added three extra points. His 47-yarder is just two yards shy of Nuernberger’s career best which was achieved in 2014, when the kicker was a freshman. After starting in 2014-15, Nuernberger redshirted when Tyler Durbin won the kicking duties in 2016. He reclaimed the starting job last season.

    It feels like Sean Nuernberger has been Ohio State’s kicker for a million years[/paste:font]
    In his career, Nuernberger has hit 36 of his 50 FG attempts, and is a perfect 216-for-216 on extra points— leading to multiple school records. Nuernberger has 324 total points, just 32 behind Mike Nugent’s school record for kickers of 356. However, Nuernberger has not connected on a FG longer than 30 yards on the season, and has only hit one longer than 40 since 2014.

    Haubeil is a sophomore from Buffalo, N.Y., and was ranked as the second best kicker by 247sports in the 2017 recruiting class. While Meyer did not specifically say that Haubeil would keep the job for the rest of the season even if/when Nuernberger is 100 percent (he also didn’t say that Nuernberger wasn’t completely healthy now), it feels like a changing of the guard for one of OSU’s longest-tenured players.

    Haubeil will now go into an excited Ross-Ade Stadium for his first road game as Ohio State’s kicker for the primetime matchup on Saturday. The Purdue Boilermakers are amped up following three-straight dominant wins over Boston College, Nebraska and Illinois, and would love to take down the No. 2 Buckeyes. If Ohio State’s defense isn’t able to stop the Boilermakers’ explosive offense, the game just might come down to a last-second field goal.

    Blake Haubeil will be Ohio State's starting kicker for the second straight week when the Buckeyes play at Purdue on Saturday, Urban Meyer said Thursday on his radio show on 97.1 The Fan.

    "We do have a lot of confidence in Blake," Meyer said Thursday. "Blake’s a sophomore, and he’ll get the start Saturday. There’s a thump when he hits that thing, and a great kid too."

    Meyer replaced Nuernberger as Ohio State's kicker for field goals and extra points last week, when the Buckeyes hosted Minnesota at Ohio Stadium, after Nuernberger suffered a groin strain during warmups. Meyer said the Buckeyes made the decision to go with Haubeil to avoid the risk of Nuernberger aggravating that injury.

    "Those kind of injuries, if you push through it, you might be done for the year," Meyer said.

    Meyer did not specify Thursday whether the decision to start Haubeil this week was related to Nuernberger's health or Haubeil's performance, but he did say earlier this week that the position was open for competition. Haubeil made all three of his field goal attempts in Ohio State's 30-14 win over Minnesota, including a 47-yard kick, and all three of his extra point attempts.

    The only negative critique that Meyer had of Haubeil's debut: his celebration after making his 47-yard field goal.

    "One thing we had to have a conference with Blake about, really in front of the team, was when he kicked that one field goal, I noticed – because I do watch that stuff – he looks up in the stands and says, ‘We’re No. 1,’ one of those deals. And I made it clear we don’t do that," Meyer said. "So we had a little chat with our kicker Blake; you don’t need to wave to the fans, you need to go hug a big guy, no different than K.J. Hill. So I think you’ll see him hug a big guy from now on."

    I’m unsure how you could start a game and still have this black stripe thing.

    Need this guy to step up and become the next great Buckeye PK. We need someone we can count on and I can’t recall that we have had someone like that since Nuge.

    Ohio State’s recruiting class of 2017 is entering a pivotal season.

    Those Buckeyes are entering their third season in Columbus, which means they’re expected to be ready to play significant roles for Ohio State if they haven’t already. Each of them now have two years as Ohio State players under their belts, and by the end of the upcoming season, all of them will be on the back end of their careers while some of them will have decisions to make about whether it’s time to go to the NFL.

    With that in mind, Eleven Warriors has taken an individual look this offseason at each of Ohio State’s 18 third-year scholarship players – in descending order of their 247Sports composite recruiting rankings – and the expectations that preceded their Ohio State careers, how they have performed in their first two seasons as Buckeyes and the outlook for the remainder of their careers.

    The Third-Year Reset wraps up with a look at Blake Haubeil, the No. 4-ranked kicker in the class of 2017, who has already contributed in each of his first two seasons at Ohio State but now has the Buckeyes’ placekicking duties all to himself entering his junior year.

    After transferring from Amherst Central High School to Canisius High School (both in Buffalo, New York) for his final two years of high school, Haubeil was selected by The Buffalo News as the first-team all-Western New York kicker and selected by USA TODAY as the first-team All-New York kicker for each of his two seasons with the Crusaders.

    In his junior season in 2015, Haubeil made a 61-yard field goal – the second-longest field goal in New York high school football history – that made the difference in a 23-20 win for Canisius over South Park High School. In his senior season, Haubeil helped lead the Crusaders to a New York Catholic High School Athletic Association championship by making all 56 of his extra point attempts.
