24. Malik Hooker wore number 24 as a Buckeye in 2016. He came out of nowhere to lead the team in interceptions in his first year as a starter. His 7 picks tied him for 3rd in the nation, and he led the country with interceptions returned for a touchdown with 3, which was also a Buckeye single season and career record. Hooker also finished 3rd on the team in tackles with 74 as well, proving he was more than just a one trick pony. It's not going to be easy to replace Hooker this year, who was drafted by the Colts in the offseason. He was an incredibly talented player who could potentially have a long, successful NFL career.
