    SPRING GAME QUOTEBOOK: CHASE YOUNG ALREADY PREPARING FOR FALL, JUSTIN HILLIARD STILL LOOKING TO IMPROVE AND DWAYNE HASKINS EXCITED ABOUT 2018 BUCKEYES

    [​IMG]

    It seemed like Chase Young brought pressure on the quarterback on just about every opportunity he had to rush the passer in Saturday’s spring game.

    While Young was only credited with one sack – or what constitutes a sack in a game where defenders are not allowed to tackle the quarterback – in Saturday’s box score, the sophomore defensive end felt like he could have had many more in a real game.

    “It’s like you got to slow down, like you don’t want to hit them, because Coach Meyer don’t want you to touch the quarterbacks, they’re so pretty boys,” Young said with a laugh. “But nah, it’s all cool though. All three of them are really good. Obviously I wouldn’t want to get them hurt.”

    How many sacks did Young feel like he had in his head?

    “Like six or seven,” Young said, smiling before he answered.

    Although Young might be doing generous math, no stats were necessary on Saturday to see how talented he is. No matter who Team Gray lined up at left tackle – including Thayer Munford, who got the surprising start at left tackle with Isaiah Prince at right tackle with the first-team offense – Young seemed to have his way with every opponent, using a variety of pass-rush moves to get to the quarterback (or as close as he was allowed to get).

    Young is getting tired, though, of beating up on his own teammates. While Ohio State’s first actual game of the season is still more than four months away, Young says he is already preparing for the Buckeyes’ Sept. 1 season opener.

    “I’m already looking at film of Oregon State,” Young said. “So I’m definitely ready to go against those tackles.”

    After playing only occasionally last season, Young appears to be well on his way to much more playing time in 2018.

    Football: Chase Young shows glimpse of All-American potential with Spring Game performance

    [​IMG]

    The first time sophomore defensive end Chase Young beat sophomore offensive tackle Thayer Munford around the edge and had his eyes on redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the Spring Game, he got a stern warning from head coach Urban Meyer.

    “Don’t even tackle, don’t even tackle,” Young recalled Meyer yelling as he grabbed Haskins by shoulder pads right behind the signal-caller’s neck.

    Little did Meyer know, he would be yelling that out what felt like a dozen more times Saturday afternoon.

    Despite being credited with just one sack, Young said he would have had six or seven sacks if he could tackle quarterbacks. No one should doubt his unofficial count. Seemingly every possession Young played, he got his hands on a quarterback or disrupted a pass.

    Nothing about Young’s performance should surprise anyone.

    The physical specimen spent his first season backing up four future NFL players — junior Nick Bosa and now-departed Sam Hubbard, Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes. Despite not playing starter-level snaps due to the veteran talent at his position, Young, a former five-star prospect, flashed enough for Holmes to call him a future No. 1 overall draft pick one week into last season.

    “Chase is going to be a really good player — he’s a good player now,” defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said after the Spring Game. “He’s got the potential to be something special. With [defensive line coach Larry Johnson] working with him, I fully expect that to happen.”

    On Saturday, Young demonstrated the destruction he can create in opposing backfields.

    Haskins and the rest of the quarterbacks wore black jerseys in the Spring Game to ensure no defensive players would hit them. They were the only things protecting the group from Young.

    “It’s like you’ve got to slow down. You don’t want to hit them because coach Meyer don’t want you to touch the quarterbacks. They’re so pretty boys,” Young said with a laugh.

    A lanky, yet filled out 6-foot-5, 260-pounder who is decidedly not a pretty boy, Young is hard to avoid noticing. His mixture of speed and strength stands out, even when just taking in warmups. As a true freshman, his body was constantly compared to that of an NFL defensive end because he was so chiseled, despite being just 18 years old.

    Now, he has begun to turn that raw potential into results. And it doesn’t hurt that his nickname — “The Predator” — perfectly fits his style of play.

    “Chase is a physically imposing guy with his length, so I think that’s an advantage he has,” Schiano said. “And I think he’s getting better at the technique that coach J teaches. I think that’s going to be a lethal combination.”

    Ohio State DE Chase Young looks ready to make leap to stardom

    [​IMG]



    Based on how much he played last season, Chase Young probably has the upper hand in which one will improve more. It will be hard for J.K. Dobbins to significantly improve on his 1,400 rushing yards as a freshman, especially if Mike Weber is healthy and getting carries. That’s not to say he won’t be a better and more refined player, but Young has more to gain and probably has a higher ceiling.

    Young also has a great blueprint, as fellow Ohio State defensive ends Joey and Nick Bosa made huge leaps from their freshman to sophomore season after flashing elite potential as first-year players. Defensive line coach Larry Johnson said the best way to ensure success for budding stars is to make sure they’re brought along consistently and develop their technique instead of relying purely on athleticism.

    “With young players, you want to make sure they are not growing too fast,” Johnson said. “When you grow too fast, you miss the technique part of it. My job with Chase is make sure [he doesn’t] use athleticism to win every play. That was the biggest focus going into spring ball, to make sure he has enough tools in his tool belt to use when he faces a really great offensive tackle. That is the biggest challenge for him.”

    If this guys makes a major step up, the LBs are at least average and the OLine can be good to great then a Natty game appearance is in the cards.

    It’s what makes football so exciting——seeing what happens to guys like Chase the Freak after a year or so. He has all the tools to absolutely dominate.

    For Chase Young to Be Great, He Needs to Use His Tool Box

    [​IMG]

    If you peruse your college football magazines this month, you’ll see a number of Buckeyes populating All-Big Ten and All-America lists. One of the Ohio State players on those lists, however, has yet to even start a game.

    Sophomore defensive end Chase Young is listed as a Third-Team All-B1G pick by Athlon and a Second-Team selection by Phil Steele, and he rarely played last year when the game was on the line. Still, in his freshman season, he produced 19 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks.

    His opportunities are going to increase greatly this year, which makes it easy to project accolade-worthy numbers.

    But it’s not going to be something that happens simply because of more opportunities. Young will need to capitalize on those chances with an ever-expanding skill set.

    That was the goal in the spring for defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

    “With young players, you want to make sure they are not growing too fast,” Johnson said. “When you grow too fast, you miss the technique part of it. My job with Chase is make sure as you move forward we can’t use athleticism to win every play. That was the biggest focus going into spring ball is to make sure he has enough tools in his tool belt to use when he faces a really great offensive tackle. That is the biggest challenge for him.”

    At 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, Young has the size and he also possesses the athleticism to give offensive linemen trouble. But simply relying on size and speed isn’t enough. It’s a great starting point, but like a pitcher who never changes the speed of his pitches, eventually batters will catch up.

    Could an over-reliance on athleticism cause issues for Young this year?

    “Not necessarily issues,” Johnson said. “Our system is about using your tool box, using your skill set. That is what everything is about for a young pass rusher. You have a tendency when you’re successful early to go back to what you did early. Our system is built where if you do these things in your tool box, and use this technique, your success can go even higher. So now it is teaching him how to use his tool box rather than just his athleticism. You can use both, but let’s make sure we use our tool box.”

    FIVE FORMER FIVE-STAR RECRUITS SET FOR FIRST MEANINGFUL PLAYING TIME THIS SEASON

    CHASE YOUNG – 2017 CLASS – DE

    [​IMG]

    The top player in Ohio State's best recruiting class of all time, five-star defensive end Chase Young is ready to make a real impact in his second season in Columbus.

    From the moment he arrived in Columbus, Young's talented was undeniable and he was absolutely ready to play as a true freshman, but he joined the team's deepest and most talented position group, where he sat behind three now-NFL players and the possible No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Now, Young will be starting opposite of Nick Bosa, as part of what figures to be one of the most lethal defensive end combinations in the country. We got a peak of what he can do during Ohio State's spring game, when he got pressure on the quarterback nearly every down, but now Buckeye fans will see him in action as a starter this season.
