Basil Boots 47-yarder in OSU Spring Debut
Saturday 04-24-2010 5:01pm ET
Chillicothe's Drew Basil helped the Gray to a 17-14 victory over the Scarlet in Ohio State's spring game.
Basil, who graduated early from CHS for early enrollment to OSU, had an active debut in Ohio Stadium. Two point after conversions, three kickoffs and nailed a 47-yard field goal to give the Gray team a 10-7 4th quarter lead with 10:34 remaining.
Just before halftime, the Gray coaches gave Basil a shot at a 60 yard attempt, however the holder mishandled the snap forcing the kick to fall well short.
The Gray scored first after Terrell Pryor and the Scarlet team failed on their first possession. Pryor answered the Gray TD with a pass to Dan Sanzenbacher to knot the score at 7-7. The Rose Bowl MVP was 8-12 for 108 yards and the touchdown before leaving the game in the first half.
The Scarlet team went ahead 14-10 on a 4-yard td run by Bo Delande with 4:48 remaining. Then Kenny Guiton hit Turian Washington on a 45-yard strike to put the Gray up for good. Guiton and Washington connected on a 28-yard pass for the game's first score.
Ohio State opens the season September 2nd at Ohio Stadium with Marshall. Kickoff will be 7:30pm, maybe by freshman Basil.
