Nick Bosa, Damon Arnette Make Sports Illustrated’s Preseason All-America Teams

Don’t you love this time of year? We’ve begun receiving the annual march of preseason award watch lists, as well as All-Conference and All-America teams before anything’s been decided on the field.

But hey, I’m game. It’s fun to discuss what players got recognized and — even in some cases — who got snubbed and is flying under the radar on these otherwise meaningless press releases.

On that note, Sports Illustrated has released its Preseason All-America Teams for 2018 and there’s a couple of Buckeyes that made the cut.

To no surprise, junior defensive end Nick Bosa made the first team as one of the four best defensive-lineman in the country. He’s been racking up the preseason honors with selections on the MaxwellWalter Camp and Bednarik watch lists as well.

But not to be outdone, junior safety Damon Arnette also found his way into the mix with a selection to the second-team defense. Arnette is expected to be a leader and anchor of a secondary that will once again have to retool and replace top-shelf departures, but that has the talent to be outstanding once again.

Now we’ll just have to wait and see if the play on the field translate into recognition at the end of the season.
