More hardware continues piling in for Ohio State football players as five Buckeyes picked up All-American honors from CBS Sports Tuesday.
Second-year wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. and fourth-year offensive tackle Dawand Jones each picked up first-team All-American honors. Third-year quarterback C.J. Stroud, fourth-year linebacker Tommy Eichenberg and third-year offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. each collected second-team recognition.
Harrison was the only unanimous selection for OSU. He hauled in 72 passes for 1,157 yards and 12 touchdowns during the Buckeyes’ 12-game regular season, landing a spot as a Biletnikoff Award finalist, a trophy given annually to the nation’s best pass-catcher.
Jones didn’t allow a single sack while starting 11 games for Ohio State at right tackle, adding ferocious run-blocking ability with his 359-pound frame.
Stroud landed on the second team despite an invite to New York City as a Heisman Trophy finalist while also being a finalist for the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp Player of the Year. Stroud completed 66.2 percent of his throws for 3,340 yards and 37 touchdowns against just six interceptions.
Eichenberg and Johnson were also second-teamers. Eichenberg led Ohio State in tackles, piling up 112 of them, with 12 tackles for loss and 2 1⁄2 sacks to boot. Johnson allowed just 10 pressures and one sack from the left tackle position.
