Larry Johnson likes to talk about the process. The longtime defensive line coach does things his way, ensures recruits understand they’ll have to buy into how he does things, and he doesn’t deviate. As he explained once again this past week, he believes in the idea that you “have to do all the grinding at the bottom to reach the top.”
Few in his position group at Ohio State embody that quite as well as Haskell Garrett, the fifth-year defensive tackle who earned All-American honors last season.
“He's been here, and now he's moved that stick very high,” Johnson said on Friday.
