2020 tOSU Recruiting Discussion

    Petit-Frere is now an upper classman...if he still isn't strong enough to play OL in the Big Ten maybe it's time for him to head to the portal himself.
    On the site you posted I read another post that LSU may take Pelini from YSU (Tressel's school). If this happens would Tress hire his nephew (Mike, from MSU) or would the Buckeye staff get raided yet again?

    I'm still really high on Petit-Frere......he came in around 270 lbs. His upside is incredible because the thought is he can add to his frame. He's athletic as hell too.

    The problem has been, he's pretty lean, and adding the weight has been a challenge. And he's a straight OT all the way. It's not like you can kick him inside. I still think he's a potential late bloomer. The talent is's just about about getting his body in the optimal condition to bang around the Big 10 for an entire season. They're trying, but some offensive lineman don't generate the ability to add massive bulk until their early 20's. I truly think he's the type of guy we could see hit his stride senior year, and be an absolute stud in NFL, once he has the strength to go with his athleticism. But strength is a massive component at OT....and he, to date, has struggled to hold up on the edge.

    I'm sure Rutgers will try and lure Petit-Frere away from OSU but I don't think it helps his NFL trajectory. He'd be best served staying in Ohio State strength and conditioning program under Mickey and just continuing to develop his body.

    I think it's difficult for some people to understand. It's not like Petit-Frere is being lazy, or slacking on the job. It's really difficult to put on the amount of weight being expected of him with his body type. But anybody over a certain age has experienced it.....all of a sudden you can add weight at an incredible speed. It's like a switch. His switch hasn't turned on yet. He burns calories at a high rate.

    I meant the Indiana OT you were talking about. I still have a ton of excitement for NPF. He still has legit 1st-round potential imo

    Interestingly, Dawand Jones is the exact opposite in almost every way and they will be the two primarily competing for RT.

    There's just a natural strength though that Jones has that NPF will never have. Likewise NPF will always move better.

    So really it's does Jones move well enough to offset that benefit of NPF?

    This is sort of like Wrestling. You'd rather go down in weight than to go up in weight.

    Funny you use that analogy, as Petit-Frere was one of five athletes nationally that got to intern for the WWE last summer at their Headquarters in Orlando, FL.

    Why is it a foregone conclusion that Munford is awarded starter status when he was so inconsistent last season? I understand he was injured to which you can likely attribute those struggles; but if NPF and D.J. both surpass him throughout sprint and fall camp are you going to tell me Munford should be a starter again just because he was one previously?

    We absolutely need to take this to 2020 offense thread but meh.

    LT is a very hard position and one of the most important. Its going to take an amazing spring and fall camp for either NPF or Jones to supplant Munford, and neither looked close to as good as an injured Mumford last season.
