MINNEAPOLIS - The Buckeyes have dealt with injuries more in 2010 than possibly any other season during the Jim Tressel-era. Losses all over the defense have forced a shuffling of the hand including in the secondary and now more recently at the linebacker position.

Linebacker Jonathan Newsome came to the Buckeyes in the recruiting class of 2009 and despite coming out of Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville high school was one of the less celebrated recruits with a three star ranking. But that hasn't slowed down the 6-foot-3, 219-pounder when it comes to his approach on the field.

Newsome will be more remembered for the Minnesota game on his big play on special teams where he took the ball off of the foot of Gopher punter Dan Orseske and watched fellow Buckeye Zach Domicone fall on the ball for an Ohio State special teams touchdown.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel said after the game that Newsome had been coming along well with his special teams play and even though the block wasn't necessarily what was called that he was more than able to perform with the pressure on. We caught up with Newsome after the game to ask him about the play and his increased role with the linebacker unit.
