Emeka Egbuka Calls Ohio State “Wide Receiver U” and Seven Other Buckeyes Preview Upcoming Trip to Michigan State

Even though Jaxon Smith-Njigba has been sidelined for most of the season, Ohio State's offense hasn't skipped a beat.

A good portion of that credit goes to the extensive depth of Ohio State's wide receiver corps, with Emeka Egbuka and Marvin Harrison Jr. leading the way in Smith-Njigba’s absence. Julian Fleming is also back on the field, and Ohio State feels confident in the offensive weapons it'll deploy regardless of whether Smith-Njigba is able to play this week.

"I personally think it’s Wide Receiver U," Egbuka said on Wednesday of Ohio State's success at the wide receiver position this season.

Ohio State will finally hit the road this weekend after opening the season with five home games for a clash with Big Ten foe Michigan State. Eight OSU players met with reporters Wednesday to preview the matchup, including Egbuka, Harrison Jr., Cade Stover, Luke Wypler, Zach Harrison, Paris Johnson, Jack Sawyer and Tommy Eichenberg. 

You can hear what they had to say about their upcoming matchup with the Spartans in the videos above and below.
