Stay the course, son. You will have your time.

Love the son reference vs the standard young man.  Upvote in many regards here.

The soldier is my son.  The school I gone to didn’t teach much grammar.

Great job getting his degree already!  Impressive.

Our d-line and o-line are deep. Deepest I’ve seen in a long time.

Always with the positive, sebaba?

Quite the change it's been in the last few years. I remember quite a few people here thinking defensive tackle recruiting was a huge negative the year AJ was a HS recruit and went with Auburn.

Keep plugging away, AJ! Stay healthy and you'll be able to contribute in the next two years. 

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

It will be interesting with a possible recruiting class of up to 28 what possible 5th year seniors will not be returning next fall for that 5th year.

I’m gonna be honest - I had completely forgotten about Antwuan. Dude’s potentially a beast, so hopefully this says more about the Buckeyes’ DL depth than it does my Buckeye knowledge.

It’s the depth. It’s everywhere. They should absolutely wear out o-lines all year.

I think his time to shine will be next year when he's playing the nose tackle position with Tommy T.

I'm just glad we have Larry Johnson teaching, motivating and developing these guys.

I think Jackson’s example speaks volumes about the culture of the program (and the insane depth of LJ’s D line). #51 overall in 2016 and now #4 NT/3T on this 2019 Buckeyes D line. I think he had a bad experience his freshman year at AUB. Next year will be his year for playing time, but he really seems to enjoy himself in Columbus, working on his masters, and something tells me he’s going to be a top D line coach in 10 years or so. Will probably begin that career as a GA for LJ.

Always seemed to lack confidence and be lazy. I hope he turns it around.

Really you know when he wakes up ever day, and how often he works out?! You know what's in his head?

Love this guy with his story of "OSU redemption" really hope he gets some decent play time when it is all said and done!

It’s just good to hear Antwaun’s name mentioned by the D-line coach.  Glad he hasn’t been lost in the shuffle and has a role going forward.

Gives me goosebumps when I hear "the team". Hoping this kid gets paid one day.

The guy has earned playing time. See that he gets it.

Glad he is at Ohio State. I was disappointed to lose him to Auburn. Hope he can get in the field.

Watched his announcement to Auburn.  Heard/read where LJ was very, very disappointed. Me too.  I think he wanted OSU but family and acquaintances may have swayed him to Auburn.  But  he has   his degree and I hope he plays a lot.  His high school film was very impressive.  He was a Big Un that we needed back then.  His injury set him back even though he played great at Blinn.

Didn't think he would stay another year but after hearing this I might be wrong!!( Be my first time being wrong)

Go BuCks

HS

He would be stupid to. He has no path to meaningful playing time. Just use Ohio State to rehab and get stronger and fitter and then go somewhere that actually wants and needs him for his final year.

“My role right now is to just be a reserve player, just to go as hard as I can and make plays for the defense,” Jackson said. “My job is right now just come in after Davon or Tommy, like the nose guard or 3-technique, just come in and play as hard as I can, do what I can for the team.”

That's awesome, young man.  I'll be rooting hard for AJ to make his presence known on the field but good to know he'll be a leader and making the team better even if he's not visible on Saturdays.
