This week, Ohio State’s Chase Young and Penn State’s Yetur Gross-Matos were named finalists for the Ted Hendricks Award, presented to the best defensive end in college football.

Young was recently named the B1G Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Lineman of the Year. Gross-Matos, along with Young, was a first-team All-B1G selection this season.

Here are the five finalists:

  • Chase Young, Ohio State
  • Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State
