OL Updates - Ty Hall, Andrew Stanford, Tom Anevski

Who are the offensive linemen from the state of Ohio to watch this year? We have an update on three of them today.

As we've discussed quite a bit in recent weeks, Ohio State has not yet offered any offensive linemen in the state of Ohio.  However, that does not mean that it will not happen as there are some solid players who could get an offer with a good season.

One of them is Cincinnati Anderson's Ty Hall.  Ty has several scholarship offers and is one to watch this year as a possible offer for OSU.  But his season started with an injury.

"I tore a little something in my shoulder," he said. "I will play this week. Its no big deal."

He missed the first game, which was no ordinary game as he was slated to go up against West Chester Lakota West and four-star D-lineman Brandon Maupin.

"I really hate that I missed the matchup with Brandon Maupin," Ty said. "We had a good battle last year."

So what schools are hot on Ty's trail? 

"Clemson, Vanderbilt, Tenn and Michigan are still playing the most attention," Ty said. "Ohio State is too, but not as much as the others."

Moving on to another player, Toledo St. Francis OL Andrew Stanford is a quality lineman who got a lot of attention from last year's state title run, and he is starting to get some offers to show for it.

"I have offers from Toledo and Bowling Green," Andrew said.  "Most of the MAC is paying a lot of attention.  I will go to the Bowling Green-Toledo game with a couple of friends."

There is one school, however, that Andrew would be quite interested in.

"I really want to hear from Ohio State," he said.

Things could change this year for Andrew, and it sounds like he is going to wait a while to see what happens.

"I am going to wait it out," he said. "I won't commit until January. I want to see what shakes out. This is the biggest decision of my life so far."

Andrew's team's title defense is off to a good start.  "We beat Lima last Friday 21-0," he said.  

The third lineman to talk about today is Cincinnati Elder's Tom Anevski.  He's a rising prospect who could be a candidate for an OSU offer. 

"I have offers from West Virginia, Pitt, Miami of Ohio and a lot of the MAC schools," Tom said. "I would really like to hear from Florida and Notre Dame."

Tom's season also got out to a good start for both himself and Elder.  "I had 11 pancake blocks in game 1," he said.

Tom has a good frame and talked about where he would play on the next level.  "Most schools are talking about playing me at guard," he said, "but I think I can move my feet well enough to play outside."
