Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott, Michael Thomas, Taylor Decker, and Pat Elflein were among the Buckeyes who earned All-Big Ten honors on Tuesday. The honors wrapped up a two day event, honoring the best in the Big Ten on both sides of the ball. Ezekiel Elliott, Taylor Decker and Pat Elfein were named First Team all Big Ten.
This is the first time on the All-Big Ten list for Elliott. Elflein was a first teamer last season, and Decker was on the second team last season.
Elflein and Decker help anchor an offensive line for Ohio State that can be credited with helping Elliott and Thomas with some of their successes, and both were named first team by the media and the coaches. Elliott has been able to accumulate over 1,800 yards of offense this season, acting as an anchor for the Ohio State offense.
Michael Thomas has 49 receptions on the year, and has accumulated 709 yards receiving in the process. Thomas has also found the end zone eight times on the year in 12 games for the Buckeyes. Thomas was a third team All Big Ten selection.
Ohio State's Jacoby Boren and Billy Price earned third team All Big Ten awards. A few other Buckeyes earned honorable mentions.
First season hybrid-back Braxton Miller, sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall and senior TE Nick Vannett all named honorable mention all-Big Ten.— Jerry Emig (@BuckeyeNotes) December 1, 2015
With the abundance of talent on the roster, it was just a matter of time until we learned of such honors. Congratulations to this talented group.
