Ohio State football gets great news about defensive tackle Mike Hall Jr.

Ohio State football has been playing without one of its top defensive players, tackle Mike Hall Jr., on-and-off for the last few weeks.

The junior last received playing time against Michigan State, and he has missed multiple games this season. When Hall is on the field, the Ohio State defense is better.

The rumors were he could have played against Minnesota, but the coaching staff held him out. On Monday, straight from Hall’s mouth, he let everyone know he should be good to go against Michigan.

It’s great to see the Buckeyes getting back to full strength, something that has hindered their performance in the last few seasons. Tommy Eichenberg should also be back along with a healthier Emeka Egbuka at wide receiver.

Hall should have a very positive impact for the Buckeyes this weekend. We are looking forward to seeing big No. 51 back on the field for Ohio State.
