Defense is always a huge focus of the Ohio State Buckeyes’ football teams, and that’s because, traditionally, they work together better than any units in the country. The camaraderie that’s instilled within these guys by the coaching staff is what makes them most successful.
That’s why it’s no surprise that three current Buckeyes on the defensive side of the ball in Joey Bosa, Curtis Grant and Doran Grant were recently named to the Big Ten’s list of best defensive trios in the entire conference.
Here’s a look at what they had to say about putting these three as no. 2 on the list.
2. Ohio State: DE Joey Bosa, LB Curtis Grant, CB Doran Grant
The Buckeyes ranked fifth in the conference in scoring defense last season, giving up just under 23 points per game. Much like MSU, Ohio State lost several defensive stars, but Urban Meyer’s team returns a ton of talent, led by this trio. After a standout freshman campaign, Bosa could lead the conference in sacks, while Curtis Grant will be looked upon to be the new leader of this linebacking unit, and the same with Doran Grant in the secondary.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better trio in the country, not just the Big Ten, to lead your defensive charge than these three right here.
