Draft Scout Kenny Guiton News
09/23/13 - Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton has been selected as The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week for the fourth week of the college football season. Guiton is a fifth-year senior who got his first college start at quarterback two weeks ago for an injured Braxton Miller. Guiton set a school record Saturday with six touchdown passes - all in the first half - in a win over Florida A&M, 76-0. Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. He is a graduate of Aldine Eisenhower High School in Houston, Texas.
The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, announced in 2012 by the Tyler Chamber and SPORTyler, recognizes the top offensive player in Division 1 football who also exhibits the enduring characteristics that define Earl Campbell: integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community, and tenacity; specifically tenacity to persist and determination to overcome adversity and injury in pursuit of reaching goals. In addition, the nominee must meet one or more of the following criteria: born in Texas and/or graduated from a Texas High School and/or played at a Texas-based junior college or four year D1 Texas college. - Big Ten football

09/21/13 - Kenny Guiton again starred in place of the injured Braxton Miller, setting a school record with six touchdown passes - all in the first half - to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a 76-0 victory against Florida A&M on Saturday. It was the most lopsided Ohio State win since 1935. The Buckeyes (4-0) needed a total of four offensive plays and 46 seconds to go up 21-0 in the opening 6 minutes and never looked back. It was an epic mismatch between a team with national-title aspirations and a Football Championship Subdivision member getting a $900,000 guarantee.
FAMU (1-3), which suffered its worst loss ever, trailed 48-0 before picking up its initial first down in the second quarter. Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. His TD passes went to five different receivers. The game was Ohio State's last tuneup before opening Big Ten play next week against No. 24 Wisconsin at home on Saturday night. - AP Sports
09/21/13 - Fourth-ranked Ohio State pummeled Florida A&M on Saturday in Ohio Stadium, scoring 55 points in the first half and rolling to a 76-0 victory in a mismatch with an FCS opponent that extended the nation's longest winning streak to 16 games. Quarterback Braxton Miller sat out his second straight game because of a sprained left knee, but the Buckeyes hardly needed him. Backup Kenny Guiton filled in impressively again, completing 24-of- 34 passes for 215 yards and setting a school record with six touchdown passes in the first half, before most of the starters took the rest of the day off.
The Buckeyes (4-0) overwhelmed the Rattlers (1-3) from the start. Ohio State had more points in the first 15 minutes than Florida A&M produced in yards (27) and didn't yield a first down until there were a little more than five minutes left in the second quarter. Ohio State outgained Florida A&M, 326-54, in the first half and finished with a 603-80 advantage in total yards. So dominant were the Buckeyes that they ran 47 plays in the first half and had 21 first downs en route to a 55-0 lead at halftime. - The Sports Xchange
09/17/13 - With Braxton Miller sidelined due to his knee sprain, Ohio State senior quarterback Kenny Guiton received his first career start on Saturday against Cal. And on the road against a young, talented opponent, he looked like a seasoned veteran who had been waiting for this chance for a long time.
Guiton finished 21-for-32 (65.6%) for 276 yards and four touchdowns, adding 14 rushes for 92 yards on the ground (6.6 yard-per-carry average). He showed touch on downfield passes and was accurate throwing on the move with the arm strength to sling the ball all over the yard. California Memorial Stadium isn't the most menacing place for visitors and it wasn't a flawless performance, but Guiton wasn't intimidated on the road and gave a gutsy performance in his first collegiate start.
Is he a draftable NFL prospect? The sample size is much too small to accurately answer that question right now, but his play on the field has at the very least prompted the question to be asked. Next level evaluators love raw, talented players who show the physical ability and mental make-up that can be developed, especially at the quarterback position. Last year the San Francisco 49ers drafted former South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels in the seventh round after a lackluster career at South Florida, but the Niners saw a worthwhile project. And it wouldn't be surprising if a NFL team thought the same about Guiton next May. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
