Ohio State has already received some immediate help at the quarterback position, and now could be the beneficiaries of some experienced help up front as well.
According to Rivals.com, R.J. Proctor (pictured, left) has confirmed that he will visit OSU after deciding to transfer Virginia in early January. The offensive lineman is scheduled to visit the Columbus campus March 1-3.
The website writes that “Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa met with Proctor recently and the redshirt junior has been in contact with head coach Ryan Day as well as other members of the Ohio State coaching staff in recent weeks.”
As a graduate transfer, Proctor would be eligible to play immediately for the Buckeyes, or any other FBS program for that matter, this coming season.
In addition to OSU, Proctor has an official visit on tap for Texas this weekend. He’s also expected to take trips to Florida State, Houston and Oklahoma prior to making a final decision on his college football future.
During his time with the Cavaliers, Proctor started 11 of the 32 games in which he played. Six of those starts came at left guard this past season.
