44 – Zach Boren
Pickerington (Ohio) Central
Career: A three-star prospect who enrolled in January 2009 as a linebacker, Boren battled through a spring knee injury before moving to fullback by the time the season rolled around. That proved to be a fortuitous decision as Boren had an excellent year for a true freshman, leading the way for OSU's ground-based attack near the end of the season. Starting five games including the season opener, he also caught four passes for 23 yards and a touchdown during one of the more impressive first-year campaigns in recent memory.
Honors And Accomplishments: Was named the outstanding first-year offensive player by the OSU coaches.
Outlook: Boren, a high school tailback and the brother of OSU starting lineman Justin Boren, figures to be part of the attack again as a smart, tough lead blocker who is also athletic enough to make plays with the ball in his hands.
49 – Adam Homan
Career: Homan, another three-star prospect as ranked by Scout, entered as the leading candidate for the fullback job in 2009 before being passed by Boren. A similar player to Boren right down to the fact that his brother, linebacker Ross Homan, is on the team, Homan still saw time when OSU went to jumbo packages.
Outlook: Homan will still play special teams and see the field when OSU goes big, and he must be ready to go at a moment's notice given the physical nature of the fullback position.
37 James Georgiades (5-11, 240): A sophomore, Georgiades helps the Buckeyes on special teams and is a solid fullback when needed. The North Canton (Ohio) Hoover product is simply a hard-nosed football player who can help the team in many ways.
