Ohio State redshirt sophomore CB Eli Apple "will be counted on as the Buckeyes' top cover man in 2015," reports NFL Media.
Apple will take over Doran Grant's old role. As a second-year freshman last year, he picked off three passes and broke up 10 more. "He made the final play of the college football season in picking off Marcus Mariota to close out a 42-20 win over Oregon in the national title game, almost as if to signal a standout sophomore campaign," wrote Chase Goodbread.

Ohio State redshirt freshman CB Eli Apple had an interception in Monday's 42-20 College Football National Championship Game victory over Oregon.

Apple collected three interceptions and seven passes defensed during an eye-opening freshmen campaign. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is a former a five-star recruit rated as the No. 11 overall prospect nationally on the 2013 ESPN 150. Some questioned his work ethic as a true freshman, most notably HC Urban Meyer. "He was not what we wanted when we signed him," Meyer said. "He was lazy in the classroom, lazy about his business." One year later, Apple looks like the prime NFL CB prospect that everyone thought he would be.
