i'm content. i'm looking at it rather objectively, actually.
Hall won't be a running back primarily next year and Hyde certainly won't be splitting the bulk of the carries with him.
We know for sure that Hall is back? I assume that has already been established?
They gave him a medical redshirt. No point applying for it if he isn't going to stay. Plus with 2 games, that's hardly enough to evaluate draft stock.
He applied for a medical RS. No word yet on if it has been approved by the NCAA. Barring something ridiculous from them, he should get it with no trouble. Wouldn't be shocked either way since this is the NCAA we're talking about.
It will be very interesting to see how the offensive staff finds ways to get 6 rbs carries. Hyde will be the man and get the first team carries. But after that it gets interesting. People are writing off hall like he wasnt our most consistent RB a few years ago, and could've been this year as well as played slot wr and special teams. Hall at 100% is very interesting and is as good if not better than the rest except Hyde, imo. But smith seems like he's turning the corner on his maturation and is running vicious like we all thought he could towards the end of the year. And being able to now catch the ball and cause mismatches puts a different wrinkle to his game. Smith running reminds me of a young Marco Murray
Dunn allows almost little drop off when he was called on this year, but may find time only from injuries. And we're all forgetting warren ball who is also very talented and has a year in the system. He should find pt only from injuries but he has great potential. Elliott may have to redshirt due to depth. A lot of talent, led by Hyde hopefully continuing his success from this year
He absolutely should submit his name to see what kind of grade they give him, and if the grade is high enough, he absolutely should declare.
Not that I wouldn't love to have him back to see what he can do with a full year and the further development of the offense, but he's a physical guy and he only has so many carries in the tank.
Agreed. If it doesn't hurt his current eligibility, and it's free, he'd be a goob NOT to see what his draft prediction is.
any word on his NFL status?
If there was it would've been posted. We don't ask "any updates?" around here. Info will be posted when it's available.
Its probably safe to say hes more than likely returning
Yes. Probably a safe bet.
If there were it would be posted here...
So..... How about now?
I saw a Buckeye reporter retweet him saying essentially that he is excited to start the offseason grind with his teammates. Not that that means he is returning, but it sounds like his mind is on the next football season at OSU. Take that for what it's worth.
