Didn't see much from him in the spring or haven't heard much about him since his injury.How is he doing and where is he at on the depth chart?

He's been mentioned in a few articles here and on other sites, he's still rehabbing and looking to be back to full participation in the Fall.

Thought he was full go when I seen he participated in that race at the spring game.

Go Bucks!

Running 40 yards in a straight line is a lot different than running routes and taking hits.  But it is certainly a good sign that he is on his way back.

Correct - he's on the "no contact" list

He's for sure in the "full go" category, but the staff knows what they have in him and are trying not to rush him back.  There is a reason he saw playing time last year, even if it was garbage time.  This kid has it, and the coaching staff want to ease him back in after such a brutal injury.

I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.

I still think he might be the fastest Buckeye when at 100%.

I would say it's between Clark, Wilson, Samuel, McLaurin, Lattimore.

Would like to se them 5 run the 40. SPEED!!!

It's definitely Clark, he ran a 10.3 in the 100 meters in high school. I think Dontre's best time was like a 10.5 or 10.6.

Curtis Samuel could definitely give him a run for his money. Pun intended.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

That nice info.

Do you have any on McLaurin, Lattimore?

Also, do you feel some kids run faster in pads than others?

Track numbers are all we have, but I would really like to see kids going to play football timed in pads. Maybe it makes a difference, maybe not.

Not sure about McLaurin or Lattimore, I just remember seeing those numbers in an article somewhere. I'm sure they're not terrible difficult to find, though.

And don't forget that track times are electric timed so these guys are flying. A 10.3 ET is easily 10.1 hand timed.

247 had something about him possibly not playing anymore? Anyone else have anymore information? He's worried about being injured again.

Damn if that's true, that really sucks.  Really wanted to see him get some PT this year.

Muck Fichigan that is all.

Once that starts you can't really play. Might be the end for him if true.

Interview with Zach Smith talking about his group. 

http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2015/02/ohio_state_zach_smith_jonnie_d.html

On James Clark: "He's doing well. He's coming back from injury and he just can't seem to get right. So much promise early. That promise is still there, we just haven't been able to get that momentum back and capitalize on it. We're excited about him. It's not gonna affect his year or anything, it's just about getting back, getting the confidence and getting on a roll."

Smith added that a hamstring injury is the latest issue for Clark, who broke his ankle and had shoulder surgery as a freshman.

Sounds like he is mentally gun shy after that break... We really need him or Dixon to come through 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

This sucks. Of all the guys we've recruited, he's the one who most ran like Ginn; I was hoping he'd have the same impact. Hopefully he figures it out.
