Lathan Ransom took a step forward in 2021, turning into a depth piece for Ohio State’s defense. He saw action in the secondary for the Buckeyes and was also a key piece of special teams coverage.

Unfortunately, it was that special team’s coverage that led to an injury for Ransom. He broke his leg in the season-ending Rose Bowl while serving on kickoff coverage for Ohio State.

The good news is that Ransom has been practicing and should be able to play in 2022. During his Monday press conference, he praised Ransom’s work and said he loves “how he operates” on the field.

While Ransom might not be lined up to start right out of the gate, it sure sounds like he’ll fill a key role for the Buckeyes this season. Hopefully he’s able to stay healthy this year.
