  After a prolific junior season in which he became the first defensive lineman in a decade to be a finalist for football's Heisman Trophy, Ohio State's Chase Young has been named the Big Ten's male athlete of the year. His selection was announced Thursday, along with Wisconsin women's volleyball player Dana Rettke, who was the conference's female athlete of the year. Before leaving for the NFL draft, where he became the second overall pick, taken by the Washington Redskins, Young totaled 16.5 sacks for the Buckeyes, leading the nation and setting a single-season school record. Helping Ohio State to return to the College Football Playoff after a two-year absence, Young also finished with 21.5 tackles for loss. - Columbus Dispatch

  The excitement of having his name announced by Commissioner Roger Goodell as the No. 2 overall pick of the NFL Draft likely had not worn off when Chase Young settled down for what was sure to be one of many interviews. Not even half an hour had passed since he spoke with Redskins head coach Ron Rivera, and unsurprisingly, reporters were already clamoring to speak with him; that's part of the deal when you get drafted by your hometown team. So, he sat in front of a laptop and waited for the videoconference to begin.

At first, the screen was blacked out, so he couldn't see who he was supposed to be speaking with. But then the image appeared, and it wasn't a reporter at all; he was talking to Larry Johnson - Ohio State's defensive line coach and his longtime mentor. Young's eyes lit up, and after a few pleasantries between the two, he said, "Hey coach, we've got to get back in the lab and get to work." "That's what I admire about Chase," Johnson told Redskins.com. "He's not afraid to work." - Redskins.com

  Urban Meyer watched the first round of the NFL draft like a proud father. He wishes he could have been with Chase Young, Jeff Okudah and Damon Arnette as they celebrated their selection as first-round NFL draft picks Thursday night. After former Buckeye Joe Burrow was the first overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, Young went No. 2 to Washington and Okudah No. 3 to Detroit. Arnette was a surprise first-rounder, going to the Las Vegas Raiders at No. 19. Meyer couldn't be with his former players. He remains in Florida because of the COVID-19 pandemic. There's no central draft location to attend, anyway. But his heart was with them. These were the last group of Ohio State players who will have played a majority of their careers under Meyer, who was succeeded last season by Ryan Day.

"That's what I miss the most - not being there with them and giving them a big hug," Meyer told The Dispatch on Friday before the draft's second and third rounds. "It's a life change. It's going to impact their families for a long time. "It's also a reward for incredibly hard work." Meyer emphasized the work. It goes without saying that no one becomes a first-round draft pick without putting in effort. But what does that really mean at Ohio State? "My goal and part of our culture is to embrace the discomfort," said Meyer, now an assistant athletic director at OSU. "And for those people that don't like the discomfort of hard work...greatness is very hard." - Columbus Dispatch

  In the end, Chase Young's hometown team was never very close to trading away the chance to take him with the No. 2 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Thursday night that only teams in the second half of the first round reached out about trading up. Besides, they were enthralled by what a pass rusher as talented as Young could bring to their defense. "A lot of good football he played the last couple of years," Rivera told "Voice of the Redskins" Larry Michael. "Probably as good as anybody I've seen. And he's a guy that can come in and impact our football team. Not just his position, not just the defense, but our football team."

In addition to doing its recent due diligence on a potential trade, Washington had done its due diligence on Young going back months. Rivera said he watched a lot of film on the Buckeyes' single-season sack leader and unanimous All-American. "This is a young man that we've watched for quite some time," Rivera said. "We had an opportunity to visit with him at the combine and we really liked what we heard. We really did." Young is the only pick Washington is scheduled to make prior to the third round. What the franchise's early draft lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. Many analysts considered Young to be the draft's best overall player, and Rivera agreed. "I feel very, very fortunate to be able to get him," Rivera told reporters early Friday morning. "I most certainly do believe he's the best." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  The Washington Redskins selected defensive end Chase Young in the first round (No. 2 overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft. Young (6-5, 265) played in 38 games at Ohio State from 2017-19 and recorded 99 tackles (69 solo), 42.5 tackles for loss, 30.5 sacks, 10 forced fumbles and eight passes defensed. As a junior in 2019, Young registered 16.5 sacks, which set the Ohio State single-season record and was the highest total in the nation. Young also led the nation in forced fumbles (seven). He was named a unanimous All-American and Heisman Trophy finalist, where he was the ninth defensive player out of 159 total finalists since 1982. Young was named both the Chuck Bednarik Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy winners, which both are presented annually to college football's top defensive players. He was additionally named to the 2019 College Football All-American Team and first-team All-Big Ten. - Redskins.com

  Even if Chase Young and Jeff Okudah are not the No. 2 and 3 picks, as expected, Ohio State football will definitely have two first-round picks on Thursday's opening night of the 2020 NFL Draft. The first to come off the board will be an important tiebreaker, and the second will run up the score a bit. Ohio State and USC go into this draft tied for the most first-round selections all-time with 81 apiece. USC could have a first-rounder of its own if offensive tackle Austin Jackson rises into the top 32 picks. However, the Trojans' second-best draft prospect - receiver Michael Pittman - has been topping out in the second round of mock drafts. Assuming Young or Okudah goes in the top five picks, Ohio State will become the first program to have defensive players do so in three consecutive drafts. The Browns picked Denzel Ward at No. 4 in 2018 and the San Francisco 49ers selected Nick Bosa at No. 3 last season. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  NFL teams have posed the question frequently to Larry Johnson, and in one sense it's an honor. It also puts Johnson in a nearly impossible quandary. In his six seasons as Ohio State's defensive line coach, Johnson has recruited and developed an impressive number of linemen into NFL players. Until now, two stood above the rest: the Bosa brothers, Joey and Nick. Joey went No. 3 overall in the 2016 draft to the San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers and became the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year. Nick did the same for the San Francisco 49ers last year as the No. 2 overall pick. Now comes Chase Young, and well, you can guess the question Johnson gets: Which of the three is the best? Johnson is wise enough to deflect. "I'm not saying," Johnson said with a laugh. "All three have the potential to be the best."

But he did give a breakdown of the defensive ends. "Nick is very strong and powerful, a great bender," Johnson said, referring to his flexibility. "Joey's a great technician. He stays in his wheelhouse to do exactly what he does best." Young, he said, might be the most physically gifted of the three. "Those are all great athletes, (but) Chase is a different breed," Johnson said. "He can run. He has great get-off. He can bend. He can drop into coverage. He's got great hands. So he has a little more things in his toolbox that he can use, but they're all great players." - Columbus Dispatch

  The NFL Draft broadcast will change this year as the COVID-19 pandemic prevents teams and athletes from convening in Las Vegas as scheduled. That does not mean the draft's top players will not participate in the broadcast in real time. The NFL announced former Ohio State football stars Chase Young, Jeff Okudah and J.K. Dobbins - and former backup quarterback turned LSU Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow - will be among the 58 players featured during the virtual draft from April 23-25. The NFL said each players' participation will be announced later. Young and Burrow were among the first five players to be announced Thursday afternoon, along with Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. The NFL will hold a fully virtual draft, with team employees working separately from their homes rather than at team facilities or at a draft location. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Chase Young's final, brilliant season with Ohio State football transcended the recognition typically bestowed on the nation's top defensive players. The defensive end's intimidating presence off the edge made him a Heisman Trophy finalist and led the Buckeyes to the College Football Playoff. As expected, Young will forgo a senior season in Columbus and transfer those talents to the next level. He announced via Twitter on Friday that he plans to enter the 2020 NFL Draft. A unanimous All-American, Young's awards haul included the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, the Chicago Tribune Silver Football and the Nagurski and Bednarik awards as the nation's top defensive player. With some bowl games yet to be played, Young leads the nation in sacks (16.5) and sacks per game (1.38) and ranks fourth in tackles for loss per game (1.75). The sack total broke Ohio State's single-season record. - Cleveland.com

  Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young will be held out of one more game as punishment for breaking NCAA rules by accepting a personal loan. The penalty was announced by Ohio State in a statement Wednesday. The school had sought immediate reinstatement from the NCAA. The situation worked out as well as it could have for the second-ranked Buckeyes. Young, a preseason All-American and the nation's leader in sacks, was held of the 73-14 rout of Maryland last week and will miss Saturday's game against 50-point underdog Rutgers. He'll return for showdowns with No. 9 Penn State and No. 14 Michigan to end the regular season.

Ohio State announced the day before its game with Maryland that Young would be held out amid concerns he violated NCAA rules by taking a loan last year from someone he describes as a "family friend" for living expenses. Young explained his "mistake" in a tweet and said the loan had been paid back. "This is the example of the culture of compliance we have at Ohio State," athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday. "I also want to commend Chase Young and let him know how proud we are of him," Smith said. "He took responsibility for his actions, cooperated throughout the process and understood and accepted that there would be consequences." - AP College Football

  No. 3 Ohio State announced Friday it will not play star defensive end Chase Young against Maryland this weekend amid concerns he violated NCAA rules by taking a loan last year from someone he describes as a "family friend." The surprising move was disclosed in the team's status report and depth chart for Saturday's game. Ohio State said only that Young was being held out because of a "possible NCAA issue from last year" the athletic department is "looking into." The school did not elaborate or say how long he might be out. Young, however, took to Twitter a short time later.

"I made a mistake last year by accepting a loan from a family friend I've known since the summer before my freshman year at OSU," he wrote on his verified Twitter account Friday morning. "I repaid it in full last summer and I'm working with the University and NCAA to get back on the field as soon as possible." Tim Nevius, an attorney and former NCAA investigator, confirmed he is working with Young. He tweeted that Young "took a small loan from a close family friend last year to cover basic life expenses. Loan was repaid months ago and we're working to restore his eligibility." The suspension has been the first hint of off-field trouble or any significant adversity for the Buckeyes, who are ranked No. 1 in the current playoff rankings with legitimate hopes for a national championship in coach Ryan Day's first season in charge. - AP College Football

  Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young won't play Saturday against Maryland because of a possible NCAA "issue" in 2018. The surprising news was announced by the school with team's status report and depth chart for the coming game. The statement says Young is being held out because of a "possible NCAA issue from last year" the athletic department is "looking into." The school did not elaborate on what Young may have done or say for how long he might be out. Young leads the nation in sacks with 13.5 after a dominant performance two weeks ago against Wisconsin that thrust him into the Heisman Trophy race. The junior was a preseason AP All-American and is projected to be one of the first players taken in next year's NFL draft.

The third-ranked Buckeyes were No. 1 in this week's initial College Football Playoff rankings. They were off last week and face Rutgers next week before finishing the season against No. 5 Penn State and No. 14 Michigan. The Buckeyes are 42-point favorites against Maryland and will be favored by even more against Rutgers, even without Young. Their final two games, however, will have Big Ten and national championship implications. Young is a former five-star recruit from Maryland. He has been one of the best players in the country, regardless of position, this season, anchoring an Ohio State defense that leads the nation in yards per play (3.59). - AP College Football

  Two from the Big Ten. Two from the Southeastern Conference. And the undefeated defending national champions on the outside looking in - for now. Ohio State, LSU, Alabama and Penn State were the top four teams Tuesday night in the College Football Playoff selection committee's first rankings of the season. Next up was Clemson, winner of two of the last three playoffs, followed by Georgia and Oregon. The 13-member committee will produce four more weekly top 25s before the only ones that really count come out on selection Sunday, Dec. 8.

The semifinals will be held this season at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona, and the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 28. The national championship game is Jan. 13 in New Orleans. The top four in the selection committee's initial rankings have never all reached the semifinals in the playoff's five-year history. Eleven of the 20 teams that started in the top four of the CFP rankings have reached the playoff, but, oddly, never the team ranked third. Utah was eighth and Oklahoma, the highest-ranked team from the Big 12, was ninth. Florida gave the SEC four of the top 10 teams. Another SEC team, Auburn, was 11th, followed by Baylor, one of the country's surprising unbeaten teams. - AP College Football

  J.K. Dobbins rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns, Chase Young was nearly unblockable with four sacks and No. 3 Ohio State routed No. 13 Wisconsin 38-7 on Saturday. Dobbins slashed Wisconsin's top-ranked defense for long gains in the second half, including scoring runs of 9 and 14 yards in a game played from beginning to end in the driving rain. He outperformed Badgers Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor, who could muster only 52 yards rushing against the Buckeyes (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) after averaging almost 137 per game coming in. Young looked like the Heisman contender on his day, tying a school record for sacks in a game, including two strip sacks that led to fumbles recovered each time by linebacker Pete Werner.

Justin Fields was harassed and sacked five times but - as he has been all season - was masterful at extending plays at critical times for the Buckeyes. He finished 12 for 22 for 167 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for a score. Chris Olave caught two touchdowns passes and had seven catches for 93 yards. Wisconsin (6-2, 3-2) scored on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Coan to A.J. Taylor early in the second half after the Badgers blocked an Ohio State punt and started with a short field. That made it 10-7, but Ohio State immediately answered with a touchdown drive and was never threatened again. Ohio State has outscored opponents 386-63 and hasn't played a close game yet. - AP College Football

  Chase Young is one chatty Buckeye, and he has the game to back up the big talk. Young is No. 5 Ohio State 's best player and was named to the preseason Associated Press All-America team presented by Regions Bank. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive end with startling quickness and a mean streak rarely stops cheering, cajoling and trash-talking. "Every day we're expected to have the most juice," Young said of the defensive front. Last year, after star defensive end Nick Bosa went down with an injury in the third game, Young carried the flag for the Buckeyes' "Rushmen," piling up 10 sacks, 15.5 tackles for a loss and 77 quarterback pressures and establishing himself as one of the most dynamic linemen in the country. The Maryland native did it a lot of the time with sore ankles.

Young became only the eighth player in Ohio State history to record double-digit sacks in a season. If he can do it again in this, his junior year and likely his last in Columbus, he will become only the second to have double-digits sacks in a season. Mike Vrabel, now head coach of the NFL's Tennessee Titans, did it in 1994 and '95. Rated as the seventh overall prospect nationally coming out of high school in 2017, Young is bright on the national radar now, and is set up for monster year as the Buckeyes featured pass rusher. "I feel like looking at the film from last year, I can use my hands a lot better," Young said. "I feel like I can get off the ball better. It's just a lot of stuff where I'm really nitpicky about." - AP College Football

  Young led Ohio State with 9.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for losses last season despite lingering ankle injuries. After an offseason of rehabilitation work, Young reported that his ankles felt "real good" this month. Most of his other preparations for his junior season centered on on-field work, preparing for a variety of situations along the edge of the defensive line. "Playing the run, playing the pass, my hands, hips, just regular fundamentals of the game," Young said. If anything was the highest priority, it was his initial movement at the line of scrimmage. "I feel I can get off the ball better," Young said. "It's a lot of stuff I'm really nitpicky about."

If another productive season beckons, with a chance to tally double-digit sack totals for the season, Young hopes to move closer toward being considered among the top pass rushers to play at Ohio State, including the Bosa brothers. "Everybody wants to be the best," Young said. "You know, that's what I strive for every day." - Columbus Dispatch

  Chase Young is entering his third season as an Ohio State Buckeye as a key member of the team's defensive line. From that standpoint, this fall camp is no different than the previous two. The one significant difference, he's now the line's main event. He's what Tyquan Lewis, John Simon and Joey and Nick Bosa were before him. He's the top-billed, head honcho, preseason All-American gearing up for the type of season that will eventually end with him shaking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's hand next April.

That's what awaits him in 2020. Right now, he won't address any of that. That will come presumably a few months from now. But it is time for him to take that next step forward as a leader, and that is something he is ready to address. He did just that from the moment he took the field for Ohio State's first practice of fall camp. "Not really talk about it, but just try to lead by example," Young said. "That's what people want to follow, how you play. That's what I started today trying to do and (I'm) just trying to do for the whole season." - Cleveland.com
