Jenkins to stay, Gholston to leave

Malcolm Jenkins surprised many by deciding to stay for his senior season at Ohio State.

Malcolm Jenkins decided he hadn’t accomplished all he could in college, and so he is returning for another year. The Buckeye corner back was projected by many to go in the first round of this year’s draft had he decided to declare. Consider Halftime Adjustments pleasantly surprised by the decision. Jenkins will surely be named a defensive captain next season, and should be a pre-season All-American.

Pictured with Jenkins above is of course junior linebacker James Laurinaitis. The Buckeye All-American has until Tuesday to decided whether of not to pursue the NFL, or continue playing for the Scarlett and Gray. Laurinaitis has said all season that he intends to return for his senior year, but nobody could blame the guy for moving on. He has won the major line-backer awards, twice been an All-American, and was even named a captain of this year’s team, which is quite rare for a junior under Tressel.

Unlike Jenkins, Vernon Gholston will be declaring for the NFL draft. This comes as no surprise, and certainly Gholston has a chance to be a first round pick as well. Gholston was one of the few Buckeyes to have a decent BCS game this year. His incredible strength and speed should serve him well at the next level. The Browns could sure use Vernon Gholston, but without trading into the first round there is no chance of that happening. Continue reading

The Buckeyes made short work of the Gophers, beating them 37-7 at the Dome yesterday. If you listen to Minnesota coach Tim Brewster, he thinks his club was in it the whole game. He spoke in particular about a sequence in the second quarter where the Buckeyes intercepted a pass and then scored a TD of their own a few plays later.

Said Brewster, “It’s one of those things that could’ve changed the game — 14-14 right there,” Weber said. “Who knows what would’ve happened?”
