See what future Buckeyes are thankful for.


Happy Thanksgiving, Buckeye Nation! With today being the day to spend time with your loved ones and express all of the things that you are thankful for, Land-Grant Holy Land caught up with a handful of future Ohio State Buckeyes to allow them to share what they are most grateful for having in their lives:

Drue Chrisman, 2016 P, LaSalle (OH)

"First of all, being alive. Having a roof over my head. Living in a safe, beautiful place. The love of my friends and family. Being in touch with people all over the world. Having access to books and the internet and being able to learn more every day because of that. The endless opportunities available for us today. Human resilience. The talents God has blessed me with to get me where I'm at today."

Jonathon Cooper, 2016 DE, Gahanna Lincoln (OH)

"I am thankful for a lot of things. For my family, my mom, my friends, the ability to play football, for life in general -- just a lot."

Kierre Hawkins, 2016 WR/TE, Maple Heights (OH)

"I am thankful for having a great and supporting family. I'm also thankful for being a Buckeye."

Michael Jordan, 2016 OT, Plymouth (MI)

"I am most thankful for my family and friends. They have been there for me since I was born. I am also thankful for the food I will receive on Thanksgiving day."

Antonio Williams, 2016 RB, North Stanly (NC)

"I'm most thankful for my family and having people around me that want to see me do the best I possibly can. I'm just thankful for the life I have. It could be so much worse than it is so I thank God."

Jack Wohlabaugh, 2016 OT, Walsh Jesuit (OH)

"I am thankful for my close family, friends, and the great opportunities I will have in the years to come."

Jerron Cage, 2017 DT, Winton Woods (OH)

"I'm most thankful for being able to grow up with my family. They are truly something special and I don't know what I would do without them. Also, I'm thankful for my natural ability to play football because some people don't have that."

Brendon White, 2017 SAF, Olentangy Liberty (OH)

"Thankful for seeing another day and being blessed with all of the opportunities that I have been given. Blessed for a wonderful family and friends. God is extremely good.

Shaun Wade, 2017 CB, Trinity Christian Academy (FL)

"I am most thankful for the parents God has blessed me with and the football coaches God has put in my life."
