Buckeyes offer another 2014 defensive end
By Brad Bournival
It was back in the trenches again for Urban Meyer.
A big advocate of defense starting up front, the Ohio State coach offered his 10th defensive end from the class of 2014, this time coming in the form of Kentavious Street (Greenville, N.C./J.H. Rose). Street is also the 15th defensive lineman from the junior class offered by the Buckeyes.
It’s an offer the 6-foot-2, 256-pound Street puts up with the likes of Virginia Tech, Clemson and Georgia Tech.
“It means a lot,” Street said. “It shows my hard work has been paying off. I’m grateful for it.”
This season, Street recorded 93 tackles, 4½ sacks, recovered two fumbles and added a forced fumble.
He wants the Buckeyes to know that he’s more than just a big body.
“First off, I’m a great student,” Street said. “I’m not just a good player. My education is first in my home. That’s just the way it is. As a player, I’m a great vocal player. I lead by example.”
Along with the aforementioned schools, Street has offers from Duke, East Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Old Dominion and Tennessee.
