I understand that some people are concerned with the lack of commitments in 2015 class. So instead, why not look to the upcoming 2014 season and the potential for The Ohio State Offense. If Braxton Miller can stay healthy and improve just that little bit, opposing defenses on our schedule better look out! I mean we are loaded with talent, talent and then a little more talent! Not to mention Mr. Miller is a Heisman candidate with a very good chance of taking home the trophy.
It’s great to watch the highlights of these kids on this roster and then seeing them doing their thing in Scarlet and Gray. It is going to be a great year for Buckeye fans and me for one, am very proud to be a member of this brotherhood/sisterhood.
QB: Braxton Miller. We all know what he can do, NOW can you throw to the TE? I think this is a key component to our chance at a National Championship.
RB: Ezekiel Elliot, Brionte Dunn and Curtis Samuel. I know there is a name or two left off, but this is going to be a strength for the Buckeyes. Eze is the most complete back who obviously will be the starter but the other two young men are going to be very active in this offense. I believe Dunn will be that short yardage/goal line back for us and Samuel will be a rotational player with the ability to let Eze catch a breather. Our RB situation is a great reason to be excited for this upcoming season!
WR/TE: Dontre Wilson, Jalin Marshall, Jeff Heuerman, James Clark, Devin Smith, Evan Spencer, Johnnie Dixon and Michael Thomas. This should be such a strength of this team for the upcoming season (and years to come) with all that youth, speed and athleticism! I am really expecting some big things from this position group and though I think at the start of the season Smith and Spencer (if healthy) will start, but these other young men will have something to say about that by the third game in my opinion. The competitive edge will go to the player who works hardest and are going to fight to play! Again, for the record I think Jalin Marshall could see a lot of action if healthy and maybe turn out to be the best of the group when all said and done.
I cannot imagine us not scoring 45 points a game! This offense is going to be fast, explosive and plentiful. We have a young roster full of exciting players and some of the best coaches in the country. This serves as another reason I am not concerned with only two verbal commits at this point. The options available to this coaching staff are much better than most Ohio State Rosters I have seen top to bottom. I am actually smiling while typing this, I mean ear to ear! Who else can’t wait to see one these youngsters take it 80 yards to the house??? Anyone think to themselves which one of these players are going to be the real deal???? I am so looking forward to August 30th, 2014 and the beginning of our season, anyone else?
The Buckeyes will end up with a great recruiting class for 2015 and I have no doubt in my mind but hey I am a “Glass Half Full” type guy!
Now a few Silver Bullets:
I am so excited to get this season stated!!! BRING IT ON!!!
