Looking at the Biggest Second-Year Leaps of Recent Ohio State Football Players

With Chase Young, Jeff Okudah and J.K. Dobbins leaving early for the NFL and the graduations of several players at wide receiver and along the defensive line, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day needs some of his younger players to step up this fall.

Fittingly, the six highest-rated prospects from the Buckeyes 2018 and 2019 recruiting classes are either sophomores or redshirt sophomores who are projected to start or be in heavy rotation this season.

Those six are offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, defensive tackle Taron Vincent, defensive end Zach Harrison, offensive guard Harry Miller and wideouts Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams.
