Bosa, a five-star recruit from Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas, became a starter early in the year because of an injury to sophomore Adolphus Washington (also a five-star recruit) and filled in more than adequately.
After averaging nearly a tackle for loss per game this season, he was selected to the freshman All-America teams of by The Sporting News and College Football News.
The defensive end has 39 tackles, including 12.5 for loss and 6.5 sacks. He was named honorable mention All-Big Ten last week.
CFN also noticed the performance of OSU punter Cameron Johnston, who made that publication's freshman All-America second team after averaging 43.5 yards per punt. Per Ohio State, the native Australian's 63.6-percent rate of punts downed inside the 20 leads the nation.
