“He’s an accurate thrower and he’s starting to understand the game,” said OSU coach Mike Gundy. “He works hard at it and he spins the ball really nice.
“The one thing that’s happened to him is he’s not really played competitively for a number of years … Now that it’s kind of his turn, he’s starting to get back into the role and understanding. He’s out there getting action and I see kind of a little bit of a gleam in his eye.”
GUNDY LAUDS D-ENDS
Despite the loss of Tyler Johnson from the 2013 team, defensive end is one of the deeper positions for the Cowboys this spring.
Jimmy Bean started, and Sam Wren and Emmanuel Ogbah played extensively, and Trace Clark made an impression.
“Vili (Leveni, a redshirt freshman) has played some at end and moved down some based on the package we’re using,” Gundy said. “But Sam Wren and Trace Clark, those guys are really showing up because they’re experienced players. They’ve got to make plays for us, and I think they will because they have played in games.”
