Proctor was one of the more experienced players on the Buckeyes’ defense by appearing in 29 games in his career. This season was his second season as a starter for Ohio State. In two games this season, Proctor accumulated 10 total tackles and 3 solo tackles.
Last season was his most accomplished season up until this year as he accounted for 20 total tackles, 16 solo tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 interception. He has been known to be a tenacious, hard-hitting safety for the Buckeyes.
