With a flurry of players around the country making their decisions to leave college football early in pursuit of an NFL dream, Ohio State received some encouraging news Thursday from safety Jordan Fuller. He’s coming back for another season in the scarlet and gray.
“The special privilege of wearing the scarlet and grey is something I’m not ready to give up yet,” Fuller said in a message share don his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon. “We have a brotherhood that’s stronger than ever. We are coming for everything they said we couldn’t have.”
The New Jersey native has been one of the top defensive players on the Ohio State defense the past couple of seasons, earning Third-team All-Big Ten recognition in 2017 and honorable mention in 2018. This past season, which ended with a Big Ten championship and a victory in the Rose Bowl, Fuller led the Buckeyes with 81 tackles (tied with Malik Harrison) and a team-high 61 tackles. Fuller also picked off a pass and recorded 2.5 tackles for a loss.
