With all the excitement going on I was thinking about how great the 2017 class is. I'm not exactly a historian but would you consider the 2017 class the best ever if a title is won this year, their senior year. With these members and achievements do you think they would be the best class OSU has ever had?

Notable members:

  • Thayer Munford-3 year starter and likely day 2 NFL pick
  • Kendall Sheffield-JUCO transfer and became a 4th rounder
  • Jeff Okudah-#3 overall selection in 2019 draft, arguably best corner in OSU history
  • Pete Werner-2 year starter and likely NFL draft pick
  • Baron Browning-TBD
  • Chase Young-#2 overall pick in 2019, sack record, arguably best defensive player in OSU history
  • Wyatt Davis-All American guard and likely first round pick
  • JK Dobbins-second round pick in 2019, 2000 yard season and 3 year starter. 
  • Josh Myers-2 year starter, likely day 2 draft selection
  • Shaun Wade-Likely first rounder
  • Haskell Garrett-Contributer at DT and may start the next 2 years.

Achievements(Should they win it all this year)

  • 4pete B1G champions-Nobody had ever won back to back B1G championships since the creation of the championship game format
  • 4-0 vs Michigan
  • 2017-Cotton Bowl victory over USC
  • 2018-Rose Bowl Victory over Washington
  • 2019 undefeated regular season
  • 2020 playoff+championship win
  • 4(Oklahoma, Iowa, Purdue, Clemson) losses at this point, if they go undefeated this year they will have 4 losses over 4 years. 
  • Undefeated in the B1G east
  • Led OSU in 2019, the transition year from Meyer to Day
