Chase Young says He Knew Joe Burrow Would Be Successful from Their Time at Ohio State
The fiercest pass-rusher in the College Football Playoff, Ohio State’s Chase Young is a man on a mission heading into the team’s match-up versus Clemson.
Despite missing two games to suspension, Young recorded 16.5 sacks to lead the NCAA. He also broke the Buckeyes school record for quarterback take downs, and was an absolute menace for opposing offense’s every week.
While speaking on his former teammate Joe Burrow, Chase explained the Buckeyes always knew he’d be successful. “We always knew, Joe’s one of the hardest working guys, in any locker room. He’s the perfect student athlete. Wherever he went we knew he’d takeover.”
Young later gushed over Burrow’s pocket presence, stating “Joe’s always had great composure in the pocket. He’s that same cool, laid back type of the guy off the field too.”
Far and away the greatest pass-rushing threat in the nation, Young explained he’s got unfinished business as a Buckeye before he can start thinking about playing on Sundays. “Everybody’s got a mission. Until you get there, you can’t focus on another mission. Right now, our mission is Clemson,” Young said while speaking on his NFL prospects.
Currently ranked as a top two prospect by most NFL draftniks, Young says he still blocks out all the noise. “The praise and all the hate, I try to tune it all out.” The junior from Maryland may be the most hyped defensive player since Jadeveon Clowney. His impressive burst off the line of scrimmage, and insane athleticism bring back flashbacks of the Seattle Seahawks star.
As he remains dead set on taking this Buckeyes team to the National Championship Trophy, Young did mention he wouldn’t mind seeing his old friend Burrow again. When asked on the potential of an LSU vs Ohio State final, Chase replied “God-willing.”
