    I like that his first sack came at the expense at beating a tackle rather than just coming in untouched due to a missed assignment or something. I don’t know if that sounds weird to say or not, but whatever.

    He was so swift on that play.

    Redshirt Tracker: Which Ohio State Freshmen Have Played This Season
    October 1, 2019 By Tom Orr

    Five games into the 2019 Ohio State football season, a handful of Buckeye freshmen have officially crossed the Redshirt Rubicon.

    Just as a reminder, according to NCAA rules that went into place before the 2018 season, players can participate in up to four games in one season and still take a redshirt.

    That means that as soon as a player appears in his fifth game of the year, he has officially used up a year of eligibility.

    Five games into the 2019 season, there are four Buckeyes who have already crossed that mark.

    DE Zach Harrison, WR Garrett Wilson, OC Harry Miller, and RB Marcus Crowley have all officially used a year of eligibility.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    And, all are badasses. We'll be lucky to get 3 years out of each of them. Crowley may be the most questionable to leave early, but his on field performance and camp efforts, tell me he's going to be awesome in this Offense. Steele Chambers is a sleeper too but probably red shirting

    No joke. For most players of the caliber we get at OSU, there's no reason to redshirt them. Zach likely won't be here longer than 3 years and even if he is, 4 years would be just dandy. Way more upside to getting them game experience.

    Especially in light of what we lose after this year with a number of players on the D line graduating or entering the draft (which is probably all of them).

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Players in their first year often hit the wall at some point. He did graduate early and was here for spring and I absolutely trust LJsr here to monitor boy could he be helpful in a post season run with all those extra practices.

    I am not sure if this was pointed out but go watch Adrian Martinez long run and watch number 33.

    He literally chases down the play. Players his size should not run that fast it was absurd to see LOL

    I like his instincts. He was thinking game 1. Now he is just playing and looks great. He and Baptiste have been pleasant surprises. Both guys are pups and are starting to bite.

    Don't they have to be out of high school for 3 years to go pro? That means OSU will have them for 3 years, unless I missed rule change or something.

    Played on fire against Sparty. He's really developing well and is going to be a nightmare over the next few years. Glad he chose the good guys.

    2022 NFL Draft Top 5 pick.

    Greatest recruit Urban ever got was Larry Johnson.

    Among the key contributors in the effort to replace Young was Zach Harrison, a freshman from Olentangy Orange. Harrison made his first career start on Saturday, signaling another step in what has a chance to be a special career at Ohio State.

    “He's a real athletic kid, real fast,” Smith said. “I think his get-off is everything. Get-off is everything on the D-line, and that's what's so crazy about him is that he's so tall, strong, fast, and he can get off the ball, get off the rock. That's key to getting to the quarterback. First it's the get-off, then it's your hand technique. I feel like he's got that down pat, and then he's using his hands more and more. In practice, he's learning more and more, and his get-off is getting up to a different level.”

    Like Young, Harrison entered Ohio State as a five-star prospect with expectations heaped on him. And though they'll only spend one season in Columbus together, he's following Young's lead this year.

    “Chase has helped me in a bunch of ways,” Harrison said. “Every time I get a rep, I look at Chase: 'What did you see? What could I have done better?'”

    “That's really what I'm doing,” Harrison said. “I'm just follow in his footsteps, do what he does.”

    The one mistake on an otherwise impressive first start came when Harrison flexed after a sack. That led to a penalty, negating his play. Afterward, he says the referee told him it was a penalty because the flex came over the quarterback.

    “I didn't even mean to flex long or anything,” Harrison said. “I was just trying to get excited, celebrate with my teammates and everything. I guess, looking back it, it was like, 'Eh.' But in the moment I didn't think anything of it.”

    “(The referee) said pretty much just got to be smart,” Harrison said. “You can't flex on anybody. That's like taunting.”
