The Ohio State football team has one big deficiency left on their roster. That is the offensive line. Even after adding Seth McLaughlin, the Buckeyes still have issues at the tackle spot that they need to address. Neither Josh Simmons nor Josh Fryar were any good last season.
It seems like another Bama offensive lineman could be the answer for the Buckeyes at that position. Kadyn Proctor, who stands at a mammoth 6'8 and 355 pounds, has entered the transfer portal. Proctor started every game for Bama as a freshman and was rated as the number one tackle in the 2023 recruiting class.
Proctor was a Freshman All-American. That's how good he was immediately. He would be a massive upgrade for the Ohio State football team if they could land him. He could step in and play left tackle and be a player the Buckeyes could count on from day one out there.
New AD Ross Bjork talked today in his introductory press conference aabout the important of NIL money. This would be the player to use it for. It's not every day a blue-chip left tackle becomes available. I'm sure Will Howard would love to have Proctor protecting his blindside.
Since he just entered the portal, it's unclear what interest he has in other programs. He could be interested in coming to Columbus, or he might want to stay down South. Iowa seems to be the favorite right now since he's from the state of Iowa, but I know OSU can offer him more NIL money than they can.
It's time to get the collectives to get their money together to make this happen. This could be the last piece standing in the way of Ohio State winning the Big Ten and possibly a national championship. We'll see if they can get it done.
