The 2019 season is going to be a year of transition for Ohio State football, but star defensive end Chase Young has big plans for his performance.
Coming off of a 9.5 sack sophomore campaign, Young is taking aim at the Buckeye record books.
Back in 2007, Vernon Gholston set a school record with 14.5 sacks for Ohio State.
He parlayed that into becoming the No. 6 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, after three years with the program.
That could be a model for Young’s junior campaign…though I imagine he aims to have a much bigger impact at the next level.
On his Instagram story, Young revealed that his personal goal for 2019 is to break Gholston’s Ohio State single-season sack record.

Chase Young is already being considered a potential first rounder in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Walter Football has him going No. 13 overall over a year from now.
Of course, the first course of action is helping lead the defense in Ohio State’s first year under new head coach Ryan Day, and new co-defensive coordinators Greg Mattison and Jeff Hafley.
