Whitmer Alum out for OSU Spring Game

Whitmer alum, Kenny Hayes "is dealing with a medical issue" and will not play in the OSU spring game.

On Thursday, Ohio State released their rosters for the annual spring game on Saturday.

After looking through both rosters, one local name was missing, Kenny Hayes.

The Whitmer alum is a red-shirt freshman defensive lineman for the Buckeyes this season.

On Friday, we were informed by an OSU spokesman, "He's dealing with a medical issue."

We asked if he was still on the team and the answer was, "yes."

That's all we know.

We spoke with Hayes when he was back in Toledo attending one of brother Nigel's basketball games, in January. He told us he felt great and was excited to play for Urban Meyer.

Elsewhere, a pair of former northwest Ohioans will look to make their imprint with the Nebraska Cornhuskers this year.

Central Catholic alum Mike Marrow and Springfield alum Kevin Williams are expected to see significant playing time.

Marrow's journey has been an incredible one. Signing with Alabama out of Central Catholic, then transferring to Eastern Michigan before ending up at Nebraska.

He's been in a battle for the starting fullback position and is expected to be just that come September 1.

Williams sat out all of last year after injuring his knee. He is now a part of the two-deep on the Huskers depth chart on the defensive line.

Nebraska is at Ohio State on October 6.
