    Note: Kelly projects as a center at the next level and unfortunately Ohio State already has Bobek in the fold....................

    2011 – RYAN KELLY, C
    In Tressel’s final recruiting class, not getting Kelly ended up being a big miss – though it wasn't believed to be the case at the time.

    Kelly, teammates with Hicks at Lakota West, was at one time a three-star prospect before eventually signing with Alabama as a four-star. He was the nation’s No. 3-ranked center and No. 12-ranked Ohio senior. Years later in an interview with ESPN, he said he was never contacted by Ohio State.

    Kelly eventually became a three-time national champion, first-team All-American, No. 18 overall draft pick with the Indianapolis Colts and a full-time starter, when healthy, from his rookie year onward.

    Kelly was a staple of the Crimson Tide’s offensive line, winning the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s best center in 2015, where he was a first-team All-SEC member.

    The Buckeyes did, however, land the nation’s No. 2-ranked center that season in OL Brian Bobek, but he did not pan out as hoped before he transferred to Minnesota. They also whiffed on three-star OL Tommy Brown, and another three-star OL, Antonio Underwood, was a career backup.
