Wake Forest Player Countdown: No. 62 Patrick Osterhage

Learn more about the freshman offensive lineman.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Coming in at number 62 on our list is freshman Patrick Osterhage. Patrick is an offensive lineman out of Centerville High School in Centerville, Ohio. He is listed at 6'4" 290 pounds and chose Wake Forest over Virginia Tech and a host of MAC offers.

Osterhage is just a freshman, but I believe he has the opportunity to contribute in year one as a rotational player. Although he comes from a wing-t offense, I believe he can make the adjustment.  He will be behind returning starters Tyler Hayworth and Josh Harris on the depth chart, but I believe that either he or fellow incoming freshman Justin Herron will be the next man up when a substitution or injury occurs. There's also a legitimate chance that Patrick redshirts this season, but based on talent I believe he should be in the two-deep. Obviously Clawson and Coach Tabacca have to think long-term about what's best for the program.
