Have had a lot of readers ask why we call Ohio State’s sophomore defensive end J.T. Tuimoloau when his actual name is Jaylahn Tuimoloau, so I finally remembered to ask him on the record tonight whether he prefers to be called J.T. or Jaylahn.
His answer: Either J.T. or Jaylahn is fine, just don’t call him JTT.
Have been asked about this a bunch, so I asked for clarification on the record: Does he prefer to be called J.T. Tuimoloau or Jaylahn Tuimoloau?— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) September 28, 2022
