DT JADEN MCKENZIE 2019 in review: McKenzie appeared in two games, playing 11 snaps late in wins against Miami (Ohio) and Maryland. A look toward 2020: Due to the loss of three outgoing seniors, Ohio State will have to figure out how to replace its three defensive tackles who took the most snaps in 2019. McKenzie, though, remains on the outer fray of those conversations. At 3-technique, Taron Vincent and Haskell Garrett are viewed as the two most likely starting candidates, with Jerron Cage also in the mix. McKenzie will likely be behind all three of them on the depth chart, though he’ll get opportunities to prove otherwise in the offseason. Long-term outlook: McKenzie, a late addition to Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class, has floated under the radar ever since signing as the No. 765 overall prospect. Eventually, though, he’ll have an opportunity to earn a spot in the rotation. The Buckeyes don’t have quite as much depth among underclassman defensive tackles as most would expect, meaning he’ll be counted on to come through eventually.
