Tanner McCalister watched Ohio State cornerbacks JK Johnson and Jyaire Brown prepare for their first career starts and thought back to Nov. 2, 2019. On that date, McCalister was an Oklahoma State sophomore pressed into his first career start by an injury above him on the depth chart. Despite his nerves, he recorded six tackles against Texas Christian that night. McCalister, a veteran of 45 games with the Cowboys and Buckeyes, made sure the young cornerbacks knew they were not being asked to win that game by themselves.
