I am a third-year journalism student minoring in general business at Ohio State, and work part time as a student assistant to the Communications and Advancement departments at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

I grew up watching the Buckeyes in the great city of Dayton, Ohio, and will always remember 2002 and 2014. I also am big fan of memes, movie quotes, and making cool words into article form. I hope you like my stuff, but if you don't, let me know at nick.clarkson@elevenwarriors.com.

Thank you for the kind words, Hovenaut. I think Weber had it rough coming into his first season as a redshirt freshman last year because people immediately wanted him to be Zeke, and that's completely unfair expectations. An Ezekiel Elliot type back only comes around every so often, and Ohio State was lucky enough to have him.

Like you said, I also expect Weber to "grind it out and wear down opposing defenses" because he is much more of a power-back when he runs between the tackles. Just based on his social media, I think he's taken a lot of steps this offseason to becoming more shifty and quicker in those tight areas where he can break off runs instead of getting tackled by the shoestrings.

Thanks for reading!
