Garrett Wilson, Among Others, Could Become Ohio State's Fourth Big Ten Freshman Of The Year Winner Since 2011

Definitely have the most talent in the conference in terms of Freshman, really and obviously, roster vs. roster we have the best roster in the league too.

I could see it. Wilson should be the guy. 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I can't see an OT winning the award.  Unless he's just flat out pancaking people (which I wouldn't mind), he's just not going to get the attention.

I don't really love the chances for the other options either.  Gill and Wilson should be great but with so many guys ahead of them I don't really see them getting the kind of eye-catching stats that would merit the award.  Wilson's ceiling for this year is probably closer to 500 yards than 1k. (Unless he's just flat out better than Mack and Victor, in which case get him the damn ball).

Harrison might have a chance, but it depends how early he cracks the rotation.  If teams are doubling Young, maybe he can get enough sacks to make a name for himself.

Young will be doubled.  NPF will benefit from that.  Just a huge fan on Wilsons skillset.

How will double teaming the predator help NPF. I think you mean Harrison.

Have a hunch James F doesn't look back on this pic with that same expression.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

Zach Harrison knows who the B10's Best Coach is.

It will take an impressive effort for any Buckeye listed to win the Rande-El/Thompson Freshman of the Year award. Scanned back through past winners and probably 65-70% are QB/RB, with the others in various positions. Gotta be awful good to win, and the other positions will show up statistically at other schools besides OSU as we are so deep in all positions. But there's always hope that the B1G will judge our Freshmen fairly in context of their contributions despite the overall strength of Buckeye football... and Ryan Day is a lock for CoY this year.

Oh my sweet summer child.

If JK couldn't win it as a Frosh...Taylor from Wisconsin had a gargantuan year to beat him out, I believe.

SO.MUCH.TALENT.

Go Bucks!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

And JT was a Heisman finalist that year too. One has to wonder what happens with him if Herman never leaves, Day is hired as his replacement instead of Beck/Warriner, or if he never got hurt. Just any one fin the three, let alone two.

You often see skilled position players get the award. So that narrows it down to likely being Gill or Wilson. Seeing that K.J. is above Gill, I’d say Wislon is our best chance at winning the award.

Harrison stands a better chance of winning in my opinion. He comes out like Godzilla going through Tokyo, he will be tough to catch. Wilson should have a great year and I hope it is a crazy great year but he has several trusted people in front of him. Harrison wasn't rated so high for nothing. Now he is in LJ's dojo, rippin and a tearing for this freshman is more likely IMO.

The only true worry we should have about this 2019 team is this:

Why is Sevyn Banks wearing number 12?

I would like to see Garrett Wilson win it, regardless.  And be the 3rd or 4th on the team in receptions, yards, etc.

My money would be on Wilson. Kid seems to have Michael Thomas' hands and Devin Smith's body control.

I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.

On Braxton.

If we're going with the high school he came from, just say Huber Heights Wayne. If we're going with where he is from...actually born and raised let's please say Springfield.

My hometown deserves the props. ....kinda. We don't have a lot. Dee Miller is a great Buckeye, Ivan Harris wasn't bad but damn, show The Field some love with an Xbrax shout out.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
