Dobbins gets a tree.

Ohio State can add another tree to Buckeye Grove.

J.K. Dobbins was named a first-team All-American by the FWAA on Monday afternoon, earning himself a tree in Ohio State's Buckeye All-American Grove.

In 13 games this season, Dobbins has rushed for 1,829 yards, which is good for No. 3 in the country and also the third-most in Ohio State history – just 50 yards shy of surpassing Ezekiel Elliott's second-place total.

Dobbins has been at his best against elite teams this season, averaging more than 175 yards per game and 10 touchdowns against top-15 teams, and has at least one touchdown in eight straight games, leading the conference.

This is Dobbins' first first-team honor of the season after he was named a second-team All-American by both the Associated Press and the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

As a first-team All-American, Dobbins is the fourth player to earn a tree in Buckeye Grove this season, joining Jeff Okudah, Chase Young and Wyatt Davis.
