CJ Stroud had a pretty incredible first year under center for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Stroud led the Buckeys to an 11-2 season while throwing for 4435 yards and 44 touchdowns. He set a school and Rose Bowl record for passing yards in a single game with 573 and also tied their records for touchdowns with 6.

That impressive resume earned Stroud 4th place in last year’s Heisman voting, only finishing behind the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the 1st quarterback selected in this year’s draft, and Bryce Young.

As good as Stroud was in his first year as the starter, Big 10 defenses may need to be even more worried about he’ll be capable of in year 2.

While speaking with cleveland.com’s Stephen Means, Stroud revealed that he has hit personal records in squats, bench press, and distance running this offseason and feels the best he’s ever felt.

I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life. I PR’d in squat. I PR’d in bench. In my running, I forgot the mileage I hit, but I PR’d in that. I’m the fastest I’ve been since I’ve been alive.

CJ Stroud will get the chance to put his improvements on display right off the bat this season. Ohio State opens the season with a tough test when they take on Notre Dame at home. A strong performance in that matchup with the nation’s #5 team would be a big start to his pursuit of the Heisman Trophy.

It would also go a long way toward getting Ohio State back to the College Football Playoff.
