    Gotta love this quote from Tommy Eichenberg when asked what it meant to be named defensive MVP of the Rose Bowl. “It was cool. I didn’t really care, honestly. I’m just happy we won.”

    • Knowles says Tommy Eichenberg has been "mastering the defense" and is "quiet but fierce" at linebacker.

    On Tommy Eichenberg, Day says his Rose Bowl performance has "given him some momentum, for sure." Day says his reps are starting to add up, and the Buckeyes are hoping he takes a big step up this season.

    OSU LB Tommy Eichenberg continues to earn praise from coaches and teammates this spring. Ryan Day just brought his name up unprompted as a player who has really stood out to him.

    TOMMY EICHENBERG, LB
    No Buckeye drew more consistent praise for his growth as a leader this spring than Eichenberg, who made a fast impression on Knowles and made great strides in the eyes of Day. Ohio State’s head coach was “really impressed” by Eichenberg’s improvement this spring, and Knowles described Eichenberg as “a great leader for us.”

    “He’s quiet, but he’s fierce,” Knowles said.

    Like former Ohio State middle linebacker Tuf Borland, Eichenberg isn’t one to say a lot in media interviews but is regularly described as one of the Buckeyes’ best leaders behind the scenes. Borland was a three-time captain for the Buckeyes, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise if Eichenberg follows in his footsteps as both a starting middle linebacker and a captain this year.
