Ohio State freshman defensive end Nick Bosa is coming along just fine in replacing the crater left by his bigger brother, Joey.
ESPN named the Little Bear to its Freshman All-American team on Monday.
Bosa, a former five-star signee from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, recovered from a torn ACL suffered his senior year in high school to become a key rotational player for defensive line coach Larry Johnson.
Bosa finished the regular season with five sacks, seven tackles for loss, and 14 total tackles.
