Bucks “D” to rely on youth

The Ohio State Buckeye defense is going to have many new faces this season. The three linebackers that were the backbone of last year’s defense are playing on Sundays. Coach Tressel is looking for new leaders and Lawrence Wilson may be a star of the future.

Wilson came out of high school ranked one of the top defensive ends in the country. He studied under Will Smith and Mike Kudla, both very successful in their careers, but very different. Wilson is currently listed at starting defensive end and with the intensity he brings to each practice, coaches expect him to stay at that spot for the next couple years. I will make an early prediction that with the speed training from Butch Reynolds, Wilson will anchor a surprisingly strong defense this year.
