Ohio State Football: Buckeyes who need to step up in 2020

The most immediate and obvious hole on the Ohio State football team is the one left by Chase Young, who can simply be described as dominant and game-changing. However, the return of Jonathon Cooper and Zach Harrison – who amassed 24 total tackles and 3.5 sacks in back-up time in 2019 – means the DE spot is still solid.

The defensive line should be solid, and possibly outstanding, so let’s move on to an area of concern on offense.

Running back is a need with J.K. Dobbins headed for Baltimore, but the transfer of Trey Sermon from Oklahoma – 947 rushing yards and 13 TDs in 2018 (played in just 10 games in 2019) may be enough if Master Teague is not fully healthy at the beginning of the 2020 season.
