Ezekiel Elliott is a serious football talent. The tapes and stats do not lie. A few things Buckeye Nation might not know about your soon to be star football player:
- Great kid from a great family - dad played football and mom ran track at Mizzou
- True student athlete - on track to graduate from one of the most academically challenging high schools in the country
- Integrity and discipline - would be shocked if he does not honor his verbal commitment to Urban
- Young and still growing - put up huge numbers as a 16 year old Junior (doesn't turn 17 until this summer). Btw, bumped into him last weekend and he is visibily bigger and more cut than he was in the fall. And based on his track performance this spring appears he is getting even faster
- Well coached - high school coach is Gus Ferrotte (15 yr NFL QB) so he is getting access to serious coaching/training resources
Looking forward to watching Ziek lead the JBS Bombers next fall (hopefully to State for third year in a row), then as a Buckeye in 2013, and perhaps on Sunday's after that!
