Trout impressed by OSU behind scenes 

September, 9, 2012
Kyle Trout (Lancaster, Ohio/Lancaster) watched the Xs and Os of Ohio State’s 31-16 win over Central Florida on Saturday on an unofficial visit. The offensive tackle out of the class of 2014 was up close and personal and came away with an even better understanding of what the Buckeyes are all about.

“I sat on the 40-yard line right behind OSU’s bench,” Trout said. “On the field, they seemed really intense. Off the field, they would sit almost right in front of me and you could hear and see what all the coaches were saying to them and how they were helping them.

“I liked how even though they were up, they were proactive. They didn’t stop coaching even though they were up. It was more reassurance of how this coaching staff is going to succeed. Still having the intensity to bounce back from last season and really do well, I think that will be awesome.”
