SCHOOL: Lancaster (OH)
SIZE: 6-foot-6, 280-pounds
POSITION: Offensive tackle
STAR RANKING: Four-Star
POSITION RANKING: Number-23 offensive tackle
SCOUTING REPORT: The Buckeyes pledge has a big frame that will allow him to play at 300-pounds early in his career. Strong run blocker who must continue work on pass-pro to become a complete player, Trout should help Ohio State early in his career as a tackle or guard.-– Dave Berk
WHY Ohio STATE: As a versatile lineman that can play a number of spots, Trout could factor in at a number of positions at Ohio State.
"Coach (Ed) Warriner has recruited me as a tackle, and hopefully I can play either the right or left side, but that doesn't matter to me," he explained. "If they have to move me to guard or center, that's fine, because I will play anywhere they need me. At the end of the day I'm playing for The Ohio State University, so position really doesn't matter to me."
