Jordan Fuller is back for one final season at Ohio State, and he's getting some preseason recognition as one of the best in the country.

Fuller is one of 46 defensive backs around the country named to the preseason watch list for this year's Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation's most outstanding defensive back.

Fuller has led the team in tackles for back-to-back seasons, finishing 2018 with a team-high 62 solo and 81 total tackles.

Ohio State has had two previous Jim Thorpe Award winners: Antoine Winfield in 1998 and Malcolm Jenkins in 2008.
