Last season, the consensus was that Tommy Togiai was the strongest player on the team, but the defensive tackle is more concerned with producing on the field than in the weight room in 2020.

The junior appeared in all 14 games during the 2019 season, but his position was dominated by a pair of fifth-year seniors. Like most of the defensive line, the 1-technique position has opened up for the Buckeyes, and Togiai is preparing to uphold the standard built by the previous groups.

“I’m really excited for this year to see how we click together as we step up and take this challenge of seeing all the guys we’ve lost,” Togiai said Wednesday in a Zoom call. “But every year coach [Larry Johnson] always says, ‘Raise the bar. Raise the standard.’ So we’re going to get after it this year and try to raise the bar even more.”
