Ohio State Overview: Tyvis Powell is savvy, talented and veteran football player who has personality-plus … a fourth-year junior, he probably has more fun being a Buckeye than anyone on the team and he certainly takes care of his business off the field as well as anyone … he graduated in May 2015 – in just three-and-a-half years – with a degree in marketing … he has played in all 29 games the past two seasons – after red-shirting the 2012 season – and he has started 20 times, including the last 16 games … has played 2,103 snaps his first two seasons and has recorded 124 tackles, five interceptions and six pass break-ups … is best-of-friends with Cardale Jones.

2014 Season (Sophomore): Powell started all 15 games at one safety position for the College Football Playoff national champions … was named defensive MVP of the national championship game against No. 2 Oregon with a game-high nine tackles and a pass break-up … intercepted a pass in the end zone to clinch Ohio State’s 42-35 victory over No. 1-ranked Alabama in the CFP semifinal game at the Allstate Sugar Bowl … ranked fourth on the team in total tackles with 76 and was third with four interceptions … ranked 10th in the Big Ten in interceptions … led all Buckeyes with career-high 13 tackles vs. Navy … had a huge interception late in the fourth quarter to keep Indiana from potentially tying the score … also had interceptions against Kent and Penn State.

2013 Season (Freshman): Powell put together a fine season for the Buckeyes in 2013 after red-shirting the 2012 campaign as a true freshman … he was primarily on the field on defense in nickel situations and he also was a key member of a number of special teams all season long … as a result, he played more snaps – 953 – than all but four players on the team … he played in all 14 games and he started five times, including at safety in the Discover Orange Bowl … he recorded eight tackles on the season plus an interception, two pass break-ups, quarterback hurry and fumble recovery … his interception came in the win over Iowa … his biggest play of the year came in the closing seconds of the game against Michigan, stepping in front of a Devin Gardner two-point conversion attempt to make an interception and preserve the 42-41 win … he had seven tackles in the win over Penn State.

More on Tyvis: Powell was coached at Bedford, located near Cleveland in northeast Ohio, by Sean Williams … ranked No. 33 among all cornerbacks nationally by Rivals.com and the No. 37 safety by Scout.com … a top 100 defensive back by ESPNU … No. 20 senior in Ohio by 247Sports.com … totaled six interceptions as a junior and senior, to go along with over 115 tackles … a three sport athlete, Powell also played basketball and baseball … ran track instead of playing baseball as a junior, though, to improve his speed … never missed a day of classes while in high school … is the son of Robin Powell-Richardson.
