39 From Ohio State Football Are Academic All-Big Ten

Buckeyes NFL

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Thirty nine members of the Ohio State football team have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors for their work in the classroom this fall, the conference announced on Friday afternoon. To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be on a varsity team, as verified by being on the official squad list, have been enrolled full-time at the institution for a minimum of 12 months and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

Ohio State’s honorees include two who have earned the distinction five times: graduated tight end Mitch Rossi, who has a degree in finance and is enrolled in Ohio State’s human resources management graduate program, and graduated long snapper Bradley Robinson, who has two degrees already – one in human nutrition and another in human development and family service – and is working on a third degree in kinesiology.

Additionally, kicker Noah Ruggles was one of 56 student-athletes conference-wide to have a perfect 4.0 grade-point average. Ruggles, who has already earned an undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina, is working towards a master’s degree in sports coaching.

Today’s announcement also completes a significant week of awards for two members of Ohio State’s offense. OT Paris Johnson Jr. and WR Marvin Harrison Jr. are both first team All-Americans on the football field – they were announced as such yesterday by the Walter Camp Foundation – and Academic All-Big Ten honorees in the classroom.
