In a surprise to few, Ohio State is extremely well represented in Phil Steele's 2015 preview magazine's All-American and All-Big Ten teams.
Ezekiel Elliott and Joey Bosa headline the first team All-American team with guard Pat Elflein, tackle Taylor Decker, and defensive tackle Adolphus Washington on the second team. LB Darron Lee and safety Vonn Bell represent OSU on the third team All-American team along with Jalin Marshall as the third team punt returner.
Adding to the accolades, a ridiculous 17 Buckeyes adorn Steele's 2015 preseason All-Big Ten teams. Ezekiel Elliott, Michael Thomas, Pat Elflein, Taylor Decker, Joey Bosa, Adolphus Washington, Darron Lee and Vonn Bell made his first team with quarterback J.T. Barrett (whom Steele would seem to think will ultimately win OSU's quarterback competition) along with Jalin Marshall, Joshua Perry, Cameron Johnston, and tight end Nick Vannett on the second. Raekwon McMillan and Eli Apple lead the third team with Billy Price and Tyvis Powell rounding out the fourth.
