Ryan Day wasn’t done talking about the game that J.T. Tuimoloau had on Saturday. He praised Tuimoloau during a meeting on Monday.

Day started by just listing off Tuimoloau’s stat line. Tuimoloau had 3 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, 2 interceptions, and 1 touchdown in a very impressive showing.

It was very obvious who Day was talking about after the first few stats were said. The players erupted and cheered once Day had finished reading off Tuimoloau’s stats. Ohio State also announced Tuimoloau as the Defensive Player of the Week.
