Good: Tommy Eichenberg, LB

With so many talented pass rushers on the Ohio State defense, it may come as a surprise that Tommy Eichenberg is actually getting home more frequently than most on a per-snap basis. When he blitzes, Eichenberg has been a tormentor to opposing offenses. He also leads the team with 25 tackles and 19 solo stops.

Great: Denzel Burke, CB

What a rebound campaign Denzel Burke is building in 2023. After a quiet season in 2022, Burke has put forth his best effort so far this year, recording four pass breakups and an interception through just four games.

Grand: Josh Fryar, RT

You need to watch No. 70 when this Ohio State offense is on the field. He commands your attention with his run-blocking prowess and clean pockets. With an OL full of stars, Josh Fryar has shone brightest.

Wonderful: Marvin Harrison Jr./Emeka Egbuka/Julian Fleming, WRs

In the running for best WR trio in the country, it’s been how this group has done their damage that’s been inspiring. Julian Fleming is arguably the best downfield blocker in the country while Emeka Egbuka plays second fiddle nationally to only his teammate Marvin Harrison Jr.

And Harrison Jr. can literally do it all.
