PFF statistic shows just how dominant Buckeyes freshman DB Denzel Burke has been in coverage this year
No. 4 Ohio State is in the driver’s seat for a spot in the College Football Playoff in large part because of a sensational defensive underclassman. Freshman defensive back Denzel Burke has taken the nation by storm during his first season with the Buckeyes.
A statistic by PFF College further illustrates just how dominant Burke has been:
