Schuss is the first Buckeye named to a USILA first, second or third team twice and the first Ohio State player selected for the second team since Kevin Buchanan in 2008. Schuss is also the first Buckeye to earn USILA All-America accolades three times; he was an honorable mention selection as a freshman in 2010 (the first true freshman in Ohio State history named an All-American) and a third team pick in 2012 as a junior. Ten Buckeyes have earned USILA honors twice.
In Ohio State history, six Buckeyes including Schuss have been named to the USILA’s first, second or third teams. He joins Joe Bonanni (third team, 2012), Buchanan (second team, 2008), Greg Bice (second team, 2004), Skip Van Bourgondien (second team, 1971) and Glenn Rudy (third team, 1966).
Alexander, King and Meurer give Ohio State 39 USILA Honorable Mention All-America accolades all-time. The Buckeyes have had at least one All-America selection each year since 2008, totaling 13 in that span (two second team, two third team, nine honorable mention) and have 20 total honorees since 2000. This is the first time since 2008 and just the second time in program history four Ohio State players have been recognized by the USILA as All-Americans. The 1957 team ranks first with six honorable mention selections.
