OSU Instant Impact: Kyle Trout

OSU Instant Impact: Kyle Trout

Another of the members of the Ohio State 2014 recruiting class is in the fold. Early enrollee Kyle Trout is officially a Buckeye.

Kyle Trout

SCHOOL: Lancaster (OH)

SIZE: 6-foot-6, 280-pounds

POSITION: Offensive tackle


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."
