    A lot of people are wondering which of the remaining defensive ends will step up today. That’s fine, as far as it goes.

    If you’re looking for a guy who will have a monster game though, look inside.

    This guy

    This guy will step up and take over today

    Davon Hamilton continued his ascendance, picking up a pair of sacks. The fifth-year senior defensive tackle entered the prior game against Wisconsin with just one sack in his career, and he now has three sacks in the past two weeks.

    “I guess I'm just more experienced than I was a year before or even in years past,” Hamilton said. “I've really been trying to work on my craft and work on the things I'm not good at.”

    “I think Davon really has had such an impact on this whole season but also the game, because he's an inside presence,” Day said. “And when he can push the pocket, it makes all the difference in the world. And then when he does what he did today, which is just defeat a blocker and get a sack, it changes the mentality of the quarterback…I think Larry's done a great job with Davon, his development over his career here. But he's one of the most improved guys on our team and was in the offseason. And now he's playing like that. It's great to see a guy who has developed and having great success.”

    As a 6-foot-4, 310-pound behemoth, Hamilton eschewed a possible comparison to Aaron Donald in favor of a fellow 6-foot-4, 310-pound defensive tackle who has represented the Philadelphia Eagles in four Pro Bowls.

    “I kind of try to model myself after Fletcher Cox,” Hamilton said. “That's kind of my favorite interior defensive lineman.”

    Hamilton stepping up matter more than it usually would because Ohio State didn't have Young rushing the quarterback. Earlier in the week, Young addressed the Buckeyes in the team room with a simple message.

    “Basically he said he wasn't going to be here and just to go out there and ball,” Hamilton said. “That's kind of the whole message it was. It is what it is. We just have to deal without him right now.”

    Great call DBB!

    Davon has stepped up his game to another level this season and he’s continued to ascend. Really impressive even for a guy we already know has Special Powers.

    I have no doubt he's the best interior DL in college ball... he's 6 foot 4 300+ and can run. He's so freaking quick and strong.

    The interior DL/OL IMO is maybe the biggest game changer so far. They just control the LOS.

    Guy was committed to Ohio and was likely on his way to Pitt before OSU offered. Definition of a hidden gem. They’ve done a great job developing him.

    I totally understand why Larry Johnson doesn't always go for the 5*s, I love how we take high level 3*s who just need molding and make them into gems over years. He's become the stud DT we've been screaming for, for years

    Davon has really, really improved this year. He's looked good all year, but he really stepped it up against Maryland last weekend. Really controlled the line and was disruptive, great leader on this defense.
