The winner of the 2021 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year has been revealed and an Ohio State player is taking home the prize.

Ohio State defensive tackle Haskell Garrett is the recipient of the annual award:

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Garrett has totaled 12 solo tackles and 5.5 sacks as a member of the Ohio State defensive line. Garrett tallied 3  sacks during Ohio State’s victory vs. Akron. The grad player was a CBS Sports First-team All-American in 2020 and arrived at Ohio State as a consensus 4-star prospect out of the vaunted Bishop Gorman program.

Maryland’s Taulia Tagovailoa and Minnesota’s Daniel Faalele were among the other B1G finalists for the honor.

The award will be given out on Jan. 21 at the 2022 Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Celebration Dinner.
