Jeff Okudah made it public knowledge during the NFL Scouting Combine this year that Ohio State isn’t worried about the title “Defensive Back U” when it comes to nicknames. The Buckeyes operate under another moniker, “Best in America.”

Ohio State wanted to make the message clear. Below is the video the Buckeyes dropped earlier this week:
