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.
I feel confident one or two more Buckeyes will be added to this list as the season progresses, but right now @j_fuller4 represents @OhioStateFB on the @jimthorpeaward watch list which honors the nations outstanding defensive back. @BuckeyesPR— Jerry Emig (@BuckeyeNotes) July 22, 2019
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.
