3-year starters are rare at ohio state these days. I'd consider DreMont Jones an NFL draft candidate after his 2nd year as a starter here.
Which means in the 8-man d-line rotation we'll have to replace 3dts and 3des next year. Lots of playing time up for grabs.
That's not really true. Urban's system is a "spread to run" offense with 1 RB, 1TE, 2WRs, and 1 H-back. In the Urban system when you put a 2nd TE on the field you take off the H-back.
Urban without the "Percy Harvin position" isn't Urban.
When they're declaring "out for the year" in June that usually means an ACL :'(
Hopefully Baugh balls out and we never need to see the 2nd string tight end
Gill and Snead already make for a phenomenal RB class. The fact this staff is still looking for a 3rd back is like Urban dunking on a team up by 40 points. He's just in rampage mode on the recruiting trail right now!
3 Big Questions
1) Can Chase Young earn his way onto the field a little despite the talent in front of him?
2) Will GrimeTime be that one freshman skill player we seem to have every year who gives us some flash and lightning on the field?
3) Will Wyatt Davis throw down the gauntlet and show he didn't come here to compete for a right guard spot - that right guard spot is his and if Burrell or Knox want it they'll have to pry it from his cold dead hands
I hope all the best for Torrance Gibson. By most accounts he was caught on the wrong side of a witch hunt. Hope he shines in Cincy and goes on to have a pro career.
