    • Jack Sawyer "will be an end with J.T." rather than a Jack this season.

    • Asked about playing defensive end full-time this spring rather than playing Jack linebacker, Sawyer said “it’s good to get back and work on the fundamentals of being a defensive end.” He said it was “a lot with the plays” cross-training between both positions, but “I’m just excited to get back to playing defensive end, where I feel home at.”
    • Sawyer said he doesn’t have any regrets about playing Jack last year, but said he would “probably be lying” if he said last year was the year he expected. He said the defensive ends collectively feel like they missed too many sacks and tackles for loss last season, so “we’re looking forward to finishing those plays off this year.”
    • On playing defensive end rather than Jack: “I like coming off the ball with my hand in the ground more than standing up.”

    DE JACK SAWYER
    Day praised the consistent effort of the defensive line throughout the scrimmage, and particularly credited first-team tackles Tyleik Williams and Mike Hall for their work on the day. But as far as Ohio State’s two projected starters at defensive end, Jack Sawyer made his presence felt on multiple occasions.

    With Devin Brown manning the first-team offense during one third down set amid 11-on-11 drills, Sawyer and JT Tuimoloau combined on a sack to stall the series for the second-year Buckeye QB. Sawyer got to Brown again in the second half of the scrimmage to force a three-and-out for the first-team offense.

    Free from the responsibilities of the hybrid Jack position this offseason, Sawyer is producing as a full-time edge rusher in practice ahead of his junior campaign.

    “I thought those guys grinded,” Day said. “I think we need to continue to see that out of the defensive line, because they can flash, but the name of the game is continually doing it over and over and over again and build that callus up.”
