Reports posted on toledoblade.com and cleveland.com say freshman Ohio State Buckeye and former Liberty County High School football player Raekwon McMillan made the team’s Champions’ Club, which is reserved for Buckeyes who have their on-field and off-field lives in order.
OSU head coach Urban Meyer said McMillan and freshman Johnnie Dixon are 3.0 grade-point average students who are taking care of business and act like grown men. The reports indicate that they were allowed to participate in Monday’s first day of preseason camp during the afternoon practices that were set aside for the veterans. The rest of the new Buckeyes worked out during the morning session reserved for younger players.
McMillan ran as the second-team middle linebacker and is expected to push senior Curtis Grant for playing time.
Meyer said it is rare to see freshmen make the Champion’s Club, let alone two freshmen. He said McMillan displays qualities of a grown, mature man and said he would be disappointed if McMillan is not one of those big-name players of Ohio State someday.
