As we continue our look at the incoming class of 2013 and the impact they will have on Ohio State’s pursuit of a national championship we now turn to Evan Lisle. Evan Lisle is a 6’4, 290 pound offensive lineman from Centerville Ohio. He played his high school football at Centerville High School.  While at Centerville he was highly regarded. He was 106 in the ESPN 150. He was a consensus four start prospect. He was regarded as the top offensive lineman in the state. Lisle was the only Ohioan named to the 2012 USA Today All American team.  Lisle played in the Army All-American Bowl. At this point Evan Lisle appears to be project. He is gaining weight, he has put on about 25 pounds since his commitment and he is growing. As of this writing, he has not yet had his black stripe removed but with 9 practices in the next 6 days, Lisle should earn that accomplishment very soon. It appears that Evan Lisle’s 2013 instant impact will be working with the scout team and helping the defense prepare on a weekly basis. Lisle will most likely be red shirt. The offensive line was a very set group going into camp, only losing Reid Fragel. The only position battle appears to be at right tackle and according to reports, Taylor Decker has won that position battle. Coach Meyer said in a post practice workout that Evan Lisle would probably not be ready physically to play this season. This would indicate a red shirt in this young man’s future. Looking down the road, this is a young man who will get an opportunity to compete for playing time. The way that Lisle uses his red shirt year will be crucial to his opportunity for future playing time. The physical size is there at 6’6 but he will need to be at least 20 pounds heavier to compete for playing time and eventually win a spot.
