    Social media is caught up on him coming back for his senior year LOL That would be the worst advice ever!!! He is up there on my all time favorite list of Buckeyes now, but there is zero chance!!!! Chase loves the university and got caught up in the moment.

    CHASE YOUNG, DE
    Young isn’t just Ohio State’s best draft prospect this year, but one of the Buckeyes’ best draft prospects ever, and considered by most draft analysts to be the top prospect in this year’s draft. A prototype defensive end who has every physical trait that NFL scouts look for in an elite pass-rusher, Young looks like a sure bet to be Ohio State’s fifth top-four overall pick in a five-year span.

    The consensus among early NFL mock drafts is that Young will be selected with the No. 2 overall pick by the Washington Redskins, where he would join fellow Maryland product and former Ohio State teammate Dwayne Haskins, the Redskins’ first-round draft pick last year. Should that happen, Young would be the second consecutive Ohio State defensive end to be the draft’s No. 2 overall pick, following Nick Bosa last year.

    1. CHASE YOUNG IN 2019
    There’s no use worrying about recency bias when appreciating what Chase Young did in 2019.

    In his final year as a Buckeye, Young had the most dominant season by an Ohio State defensive player of this decade, and quite possibly of all-time. He set what seemed to be a high bar for himself with 10.5 sacks as a sophomore. But in his junior year, he reached that mark by the eighth game of the season.

    Young totalled a nation-high 16.5 sacks, crushing Vernon Gholston’s previously held program record of 14, which he topped by the ninth game of the season. He tied the single-game Ohio State record with four sacks against Wisconsin, then recorded three sacks in an 11-point win against Penn State a week later. The Buckeyes led the country with 54 sacks, yet no Ohio State player other than Young had more than six sacks. He single-handedly changed each opponent’s game plan.

    Along with his sacks, Young had 46 tackles, including 21 tackles for loss, along with six forced fumbles, three pass breakups and a blocked kick.

    The only blemish of Young’s 2019 campaign came in the form of a late-fall two-game suspension for an NCAA violation. Still, that didn’t stop him from earning just about every possible award.

    Young, a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award, won the Chuck Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Ted Hendricks Award and Chicago Tribune Silver Football, he and was named both Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year.

    Next up? Becoming a top-three pick in the NFL draft.

    11. CHASE YOUNG, FOOTBALL (2017-19)
    Young put together what is now arguably the greatest individual season by a defensive player in Ohio State history is 2019, when he became the Buckeyes’ first-ever defensive finalist for the Heisman Trophy, won both the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards as college football’s best defensive player, won the Silver Football and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year awards and was a unanimous All-American.

    Young, who also earned second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2018, broke Ohio State’s single-season school record with 16.5 sacks in 2019. In three seasons with the Buckeyes and just two as a starter, Young recorded 30.5 sacks – the second-most in school history – and 41.5 total tackles for loss.
