    There hasn't been much discussion on the board regarding our new walk-on's. If anybody knows of any maybe we can list them here in this thread?

    Here is an article on one person who plans on walking on

    Drew Parry

    it looks like tOSU picked up a walk-on kicker

  3. I read about this kicker in the dispatch today, cant find the online links, but there is a blurb about sanchez and williams (isnt their an oline man from mission viejo too?)
  4. Good to read about Drew Perry. This will be Maumee's 3rd buckeye in the last decade. Matt LaVarr (DE/LB) had an average career, Mike Jacobs (walk on Center) started one game, and now Drew.

    There is a LB walkon that supposable has been a intermerual stud for 3 years. He will only have 2 years to play but apparently has great speed and could be a special teams difference maker.

    And don't forget John Kerr is a walk-on and may very well start at MLB in a couple years.

    Don't we have a good FB walk-on "Fitz..."

    Thanks LJB

    Even though the article does not mention any change to Trapasso's status, I still wonder if this move is connected. If it isn't that would make 3 schollies for kickers in a two year period (Trapasso, Skeete and Pettrey '05).

    The article also mentions that John Barker from Westwood, Ma will be join J.D Bergman as walk-on kickers this Fall. But it does sound like Huston will be the Starter.

    Well we certainly have some competition at the Kicker positions.

    By the way Skeete will be kicking at the North/South game Saturday night.

    Barker to walk-on

    Looks like the scholarship was Northwestern's, and that OSU has yet to offer him one:

    "The 5-10, 170-pound Skeete reportedly earned an academic scholarship to Northwestern and was to have tried to walk on with the Wildcats. But has learned that he will now try to join the Buckeyes when they open fall camp in August."

    Even if Trapasso might be losing his schollie I have trouble believing OSU is offering a full ride to Skeete. JT has been so hesitant to give schollies to kickers (re: Graessle from two years ago) why pull one out for a kid who - so far as I can find - wasn't hotly pursued by anyone and was headed to NU an an academic schollie? And we certainly aren't rolling in ships.

    In the article LJB linked Skeete mentioned that the Ohio State coaches told him Huston has won the punting job. I watched Huston at practice last summer and that's not good news.

    BuckNutty: Maybe that's a good thing, because no one on Bucknuts at this time last year was looking forward to Sander (aka "Sir Shanksalot", "Der Shankmeister", and the "Sultan of Shank" at the time) taking over for Groom. As we all know, B.J. turned out alright...

    That "no one" included you too, right?

    Let me start by saying I certainly hope you're right about Huston and I for one hope he makes a believer out of me and continues the tradition his predecessors have set. BJ's biggest problem was consistency and getting the ball off quickly. I watched Huston kick the ball time after time and he just doesn't have the leg Groom and Sander do(few do, I know). His punts were not particularly long and didn't have much in the way of hang time.

    I'm gonna quit hijacking 86's thread now. I don't want him to get pissed at me [​IMG]

    Damn straight, Rashmish. Who do you think gave him all those names? I've never been so happy to have been wrong...
