John Simon - B+
Simon did a good job of applying pressure throughout the game, but Ohio State’s best lineman didn’t record a sack or a tackle for loss against Miami. He finished the game with just three tackles.
Garrett Goebel - B+
Goebel did a great job of doing what nose tackles are supposed to do, which is clogging up the middle. Although he only recorded one tackle and the coaching staff rotated a lot of guys in, he played well when he was in there.
Jonathan Hankins - A
Hankins and Goebel both did a great job inside and was one of the main reasons the RedHawks rushed for negative one yard throughout the entire game.
Nathan Williams - B+
Williams is coming off a knee injury, but he played with a speed today that suggested he’s back and ready to make plays for the defense.
Adolphus Washington, Noah Spence, Tommy Schutt -- A
The three freshman defensive linemen for Ohio State that will get the most playing time this year combined for six tackles backing up their starters. Washington and Spence notched the only sacks of the game for Ohio State and Tommy Schutt recorded three tackles in run support.
