This is a great quote from the Buckeyes' senior.

Like most college football freshmen, Jalyn Holmes arrived at Ohio State in 2014 as a highly-ranked recruit expecting to play right away.

And then he saw Joey Bosa play in practice.

Holmes, a senior, revealed tonight that he came to OSU expecting to "take Joey Bosa's spot." He quickly realized that wasn't going to happen.

Here's the full quote:

Holmes has since developed into one of Ohio State's best defensive players. He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten player in 2016 and has been a force on the defensive line for the Buckeyes this season.

Ohio State will play its final home game of the season on Saturday against Illinois. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
