    Great get.

    But it tickles me that I keep reading how this fills a position of need. He becomes our 7th scholarship RB on the roster - 5 of them rated 4 stars.

    Obviously the coaches weren't comfortable with what we have, most of which is unproven. Trey is at least proven against Power 5 comp and in big games and his skill-set could fit really nicely in this offense with Master. I agree though, if given the chance, Crowley, Steele and even McCall could all probably do a capable job. Who is going to stay healthy and get the primary back-up reps is the real question.

    If we're just counting guys who could play there, why not add in Cade Stover?

    Are you the same guy who said, “we have Tate!!!!” When we found out Justin Fields was a legit transfer option? I mean, Tathan was highly rated, too.

    God I hope not.

    I know we have injuries and issues. My poorly made point is that lack of depth at OSU is on a different dimension from lack of depth at most other schools.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    Trey Sermon isn’t completely healthy yet.

    But the graduate transfer from Oklahoma is ahead of schedule, and he’ll be fully cleared by the time he arrives at Ohio State.

    The initial timeline for Sermon in his recovery from the knee injury that shortened his junior season with the Sooners had him limited until late in May. But he’s progressed enough now that he should have a green light at some point in April, which would allow the running back to resume his training before graduating in early May — with an eye on reporting to Columbus as soon as COVID-19 allows it.

    “I’m feeling pretty good right now,” Sermon said. “I’ve made a lot of progress, and I met with the doctor last week and he said I’ll be cleared in a month instead of late-May. So, I mean, it was my LCL, a little setback.

    “But having my injury, I had a lot of time to think about my future and how I should go about things. That’s why I came to this decision.”

    The Buckeyes certainly know what Sermon is capable of when he’s fully healthy. Not only were they heavily involved in his recruitment coming out of high school, but they also watched him score a touchdown against them in the Horseshoe when Sermon was an Oklahoma freshman.

    There are no concerns from either Sermon or the Buckeyes that the knee will be a problem moving forward. And prior to the injury, he was actually on pace for the best yards-per-carry season of his career — a helpful reminder of his explosive, powerful potential as a tailback who could help Ohio State in a major way.

    I'm one of those oddballs who really wanted to see Jerome Baker try his hand at running back.

    Jerome certainly could, and frankly Jaelen & DeMario can moonlight there, but as it stands now, none are going to be tailbacks in 2020 (even before Trey).

    Gotta love an all-Georgia backfield with Harry Miller at guard and/or center. How awesome to beat uga for the NC with that lineup next season!
