Despite being injured in practice Wednesday, a game time decision cleared the way for Drew Basil to play in Ohio State's Spring Game Saturday.
The 2010 Chillicothe graduate impressed.
After the Scarlet team scored on the Gray squad, Basil rolled onto the field for the extra point try. With coach Urban Meyer watching a few feet to his right, Basil split the uprights in the south end zone.
It was the first of four PAT's on the day by Basil.
His first field goal attempt turned into a bit of an exhibition within and exhibition. Basil nailed a 41 yard field goal to put the Scarlet ahead 10-0. Meyer had the special teams unit line up again for another attempt, which Basil calmly placed through the uprights again.
A third try (from 45 yards out) was blocked. Meyer had the kicker give it another try and it was good. A fourth attempt came from 53 yards away and again, Basil launched the pigskin over the cross bar. Not a bad day with a heavily bandaged plant foot.
Hoping to thrill the crowd of more than 81,000 in attendance, Meyer backed the team up for a 58 yard try. Basil's kick was short, just making the end zone. He gave it another shot which fell about a yard shy.
Four made, two extraordinarily long attempts missed and one block.
Basil finished off his day with a 32 yarder just before halftime, all while nursing a sore left foot.
