Ryan Day, Ohio State head coach, believes his linebacker is the definition of a B1G linebacker. Day had high praises for linebacker Tommy Eichenberg Thursday afternoon.

“If you try to recognize a Big Ten linebacker, Tommy Eichenberg is just that,” Day said Thursday. “… Boy he’s playing at a high level and he’s the leader of our defense.”

Day’s comments come as Eichenberg has been playing like one of the top linebackers in the league. This season, he has recorded 85 total 53 solo tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception. His stats this season are a big jump from last season, when he recorded 65 total tackles on the year.
