Thurman has impressed the coaching staff with his all-around behavior, not just on the field. And at 6-foot-6 and 253 pounds, he’s easy to notice.

Ohio State tight ends coach Keenan Bailey said Thurman, along with fellow true freshman Carnell Tate, has been one of the hardest workers on the team since he arrived at Ohio State in January.
“Jelani and Carnell Tate are two of the first guys in here every day. Every day,” Bailey said, via Eleven Warriors. “I go into my office at the end of the night and Jelani’s in there with our GA Sean Binckes, who’s one heck of a coach, and they’re going over tomorrow’s script or they’re watching film, learning new things. So yes, he’s a big, physical, athletic dude. And he loves football. But the best thing Jelani’s been doing is off-the-field habits.”
