The results are in, and they're unanimous: Chase Young and Jeff Okudah were the best players at their positions in college football this year.
Young and Okudah officially became unanimous All-Americans on Thursday when the Football Writers Association of America released its All-America teams.
The Ohio State defensive end and cornerback each earned first-team All-American honors from all five voting bodies that make up the consensus All-America teams – the Associated Press, AFCA, FWAA, Sporting News and Walter Camp Football Foundation – to become Ohio State's first unanimous All-Americans since Billy Price in 2017, and 30th and 31st all-time.

Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins also earned first-team All-American honors from the FWAA as an all-purpose player, while quarterback Justin Fields and right guard Wyatt Davis earned second-team honors. Davis narrowly misses out on becoming a consensus All-American, as he was named as a first-team All-American by the AP and Sporting News but was a second-team All-American by the AFCA, FWAA and Walter Camp, coming up one first-team All-American honor short of earning consensus status.
Because they each received at least one first-team All-American honor, Young, Okudah, Davis and Dobbins will all receive trees in Buckeye Grove.
