Isaiah Prince has been a staple on the Ohio State offensive line over the past four years, playing in all 54 games since 2015. He started at right tackle for three straight seasons for the Buckeyes, including 2018, for which he was also honored as a team captain.

After four years in Columbus, on the third day of the 2019 NFL Draft, Prince found out where he would next be suiting up, as he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the 202nd pick in the sixth round.

Last fall, Prince was a first-team All-Big Ten selection, following his third-team honor in 2017. At 6-foot-6, 305 pounds, Prince is a large body on the line, and is known for his quick and strong initial burst in both run and pass blocking.

However, as any Buckeye fan can tell you, he has had an issue with being flagged for penalties, especially false starts. However, if he can get that curbed in the NFL, he should be able to be a solid backup at tackle.

Land-Grant Holy Land will have much more on the Prince selection throughout the weekend.
