Samuel will be used all over The field according to the OC
Exactly @coachKeith some of these people just talk to sound good lol.,
Lol no need for an apology at all. If these are the words of the offensive coordinator that's what I'll believe..
@Squirrell..If U follow players he was recruited as a Hback but I respect your opinion...
As Dave Biddle reported today, Ohio State running back Curtis Samuel worked solely at wide receiver during Thursday's practice session.
The early thought there is that the Buckeyes just want Samuel to get some work in catching the ball, but Bucknuts/247Sports has learned that the OSU staff is actually exploring moving Samuel to the "H" role full-time.
A position move is not always a positive thing for a player, but that is certainly not the case with Samuel, as the Buckeyes are looking into the change in order to find more ways to put the ball in the Brooklyn native's hands.
"They [Ohio State] are talking seriously about moving Curtis to H," a source told Bucknuts. "They're saying he's just too talented to only be the back-up to Ezekiel. They think he can be a Heisman candidate one day. He's already over 200-pounds, but he's such a fantastic athlete. His skill set is really in the middle of back and receiver, so he's perfect for the H. He can't be caught by the first guy and just finding ways to put the ball in his hands this year will make the offense even more dynamic."
With that in mind, there's still a solid chance that Samuel takes over at running back once Ezekiel Elliott's career in Columbus is over. The good thing for Buckeyes' fans though, is that whether he ends up sticking at back, moving to H, or doing a little of both, the Ohio State coaches believe that Samuel will be a game-changer for the program.
Squirrel if the coaching staff didn't think he's good enough to get reps over some guys why move him..Dixon won't play H and U can see Jalin on the outside also...As for dontre I think Samuel is jus a better football player than him..Time will tell
I believe this is DONTRE last chance to see the field
I also believe Marshall will play a lot outside
Samuel and Marshall will share reps..I think Wilson will be the man left out Hopefully we use all of the burners we have..
He's finally moving Samuel there because when weber arrive that will be four running backs including Zeke..Samuel was stuck there last year because they couldn't count on rod smith staying on the team..He will Show out this Year (SAMUEL)
Ppl forget Braxton and Cardale had different roles playing the same position..Braxton Role was to be superman..Cardale job was DONT turn the ball over get it to the playmakers..Imagine Braxton with the skill position players we have now..We will average 50ppg
it will help the team more to be honest Dontre is more hype than productivity on the field...He's force fed the ball..Curtis is bigger faster and stronger than him.Also has a 40.7 inch vertical as a JR in HS so I can imagine the number now..Who also ran a 4.36 so y not use him at the H back...Yeah he did good at RB that's because he's a naturally gifted good football player..Nobody goes to a school to be use as someone's backup in all respect to zeke (lol he's amazing)...God praying his future if it's the NFL will be as a slot WR not a backup RB
Squirrel U can't say he just a true RB he was recruited as a H back and got stuck at RB because the depth was thin
Curtis will see time at H back also
I think this Year U will see a lot of Curtis and Zeke on the field together..He had a great yr for a undersized freshman RB..I believe he will break out with being more comfortable in the offense..The new RB coach will use him like he used Theo Riddick who now plays for the Detroit lions...So excited to see this team..I think Curtis will be used all over the field
it's between lattimore or Webb..Every time Conley got in last year he was giving up catches..I hope he improve
WE WILL SEE BAMA AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Sad to say but I think Dontre days are done...Noah brown will be moved to TE more than likely and parris will be an outside receiver
I would like to see Samuel be utilized at RB and H-back..Think he will breakout this year
Don't forget Samuel will only get better and will see some time at the H
We have to get Samuel at H back because I doubt Dontre is playing if he's still limping in a boot..I jus think it's mind games that our coaching staff wants BAMA defensive coordinator to prepare for
Braxton will be the full time starter..He's never had the weapons JT had this year..I'm going on a limb and Saying Braxton also wins the Heisman because he will be so motivated to prove doubters wrong..
It's sad how some people can just forget how good Braxton is he will start next year..If he was healthy we will be undefeated and won't need help from other teams to make the Playoffs..Also Braxton never was blessed with the skill positions we have now.
Idk y Samuel doesn't play more..Corey smith got a carry b4 him that's horrible
Curtis gonna take one to the house..I hope dontre comes back 100% but I believe this is the worst time for him to get injured and he may never get his starting roles back..
Urban says Curtis Samuel won't get HB touches yet but he had a certain smile on his face..I believe he will and when he does he won't look back..Feel bad for dontre because this might can bury him on the depth chart.Jalin is already better at the position and Curtis is bigger faster and stronger who was recruited to play there..Urban said Samuel can do so much things for them on offense so speedy recovery to Dontre..looking forward to Saturday should be interesting
