When spring started, it was vitally important for the Ohio State football team to add some depth at the cornerback position behind returning starters Bradley Roby and Travis Howard. It appears at least one player is ready to charge into that breach in sophomore Doran Grant, a highly rated prospect who is fulfilling his potential.
For most college football teams, the annual spring game is free. It is after all an intrasquad scrimmage, an exhibition game. But most schools aren’t Ohio State, where Buckeyes football is a crazy cult with an insane following overly obsessed with the sport. It’s not a game or entertainment to the BUCKNUTS out there; who have no problem paying $7 each in advance and $15 on game...
