Tommy Eichenberg and Steele Chambers “Solidifying” Themselves As Ohio State’s Top Two Linebackers

Dating back to the spring, all indications have been Tommy Eichenberg and Steele Chambers are in line to be Ohio State’s starting linebackers this year.

Based on what Jim Knowles said after Ohio State’s fifth practice of the spring on Tuesday, it appears Chambers and Eichenberg have separated themselves from the competition.

While issuing a rundown of how the defense has performed so far in camp after practice on Tuesday, Knowles identified Eichenberg and Chambers as the Buckeyes’ top two linebackers. He also named Cody Simon, Teradja Mitchell, Chip Trayanum, C.J. Hicks and Palaie Gaoteote as linebackers who are also pushing for playing time, though he suggested he still has more questions about those linebackers than he does the top two.
