    Yup. 6'4 guys with that combination of vertical, arm length, body control and ball skills usually don't stay on the board too long come NFL draft time. Everyone should prepare themselves for some Ben Victor "wow" moments over the next two years, because he can do some crazy stuff when the ball is up for grabs.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    Old track coach me says I'd love to see him run the 400 and high jump. I know that's not his future, but the way he high points the ball he's got to be 7 ft high jumper within a month during indoor season.

    All hail Coach Mick! :bow:

    Great news. Excited to see him play in the spring game

    Buckeneye With Rumple Minz, anything is possible.

    32 lbs from...? The Game?

    Coach Mick is an animal and clearly there was plenty of room to add good weight to his frame but in just under 5 months? That's just whacky.

    Binjimen Victor as Talented as Any Receiver Urban Meyer Has Ever Coached


    Expectations are high for Binjimen Victor in 2017

    Binjimen Victor has gone through a full regular season, winter workout, and spring camp, and now he is experiencing his second summer as an Ohio State Buckeye.

    The newness has become routine, and once that happens for a player, everything becomes a little bit easier.

    Playing as a true freshman last year, Victor managed just four receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown. For the first time in a while, his physical abilities did not translate into production. This is normal for freshmen, and it also provides a baseline to grow from.

    Watching what Victor was capable of doing last year and this spring, Urban Meyer doesn't get hung up on the lack of production because he sees what Victor can become.

    "He’s as talented as any (receiver) I’ve ever coached," Meyer said this spring.

    Meyer mentioned Victor quite a bit last season as a player who was close to seeing the field in a meaningful role. That didn't happen until later in the season, however. And even then, he still only caught three passes in Big Ten play. So what was it that was holding him back?

    "Just the go-hard, knowledge of the offense," Meyer said. "He just wasn’t a go-hard player all the time. He really grew up and he’s a great young man. He’s fine, a very good player. Just that typical freshman stuff."

    Even with that "typical freshman stuff", you could still see a lot to like. Now as a sophomore, he still stands 6-foot-4, but has added weight and checks in around 195 pounds. He still has to get stronger, but he is definitely on the proper path.

    What is he capable of when he is going right?

    "Anything he wants," Meyer said. "That’s how good he is. That’s how talented he is. He’s not good yet, but that’s how talented he is."

    When Ohio State desperately needed an offensive spark during their College Football Playoff semifinal game against Clemson, the Buckeyes turned to true freshman Binjimen Victor – an exuberant and talented yet completely unproven receiver from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    "The playoffs, in a big game and you have a true freshman out there in a critical spot that’s going to make a catch to move the ball," wide receiver's coach Zach Smith said. "There was a lot of trust in him at that point."

    Victor had just one catch in that game – a 21-yard first-down reception – but he played more meaningful snaps than he had all season combined, seeing the field over older, far more experienced players in the most important game of the team's season. That should speak volumes to what the coaching staff thinks of his ability, Smith said.

    "Our offense wasn’t clicking, obviously, and so he didn’t have numbers and stats like maybe he would have it was clicking," Smith said. "But he was a guy on the field in a critical time, so that should be telling in itself.”

    I am coaching an eighth grader now that reminds me of BV. Skinny and tall; very good skill; high point the ball; fight for it in the air. Oh...he is 4.4 kid already.

    He needs to be more consistent, and that will come with time.

    Could Binjimen Victor be the Answer at Wide Receiver?


    If ‘X’ marks the spot, then people might want to start digging No. 9.

    Ohio State has been in search of a take-charge X receiver since Michael Thomas left for the NFL after the 2015 season. It looked early on like Noah Brown would be that guy last year, especially after catching five touchdown passes in his first three games. He would finish the season with just two more touchdowns, however.

    It was not the production that the position or the offense needed.

    The position right now is being manned by sophomores Binjimen Victor and Austin Mack. Both are considered starters, and both will need to step up this season in order to make this passing game championship-caliber.

    Neither player had much of an impact as true freshmen, but late in the season, Victor did come on and was a part of Ohio State’s offensive plans. This fact should not be overlooked.

    “In the playoffs, in the big game, and you have a true freshman out there in a critical spot that’s going to make a catch to move the ball,” receivers coach Zach Smith said of Victor. “There was a lot of trust in him at that point. Our offense wasn’t clicking, obviously, so he didn’t have numbers and stats like maybe he would have if it was clicking, but he was a guy on the field in a critical time, so that should be telling in itself.”

    BV still looks like he could add 15 more pounds to his frame. I volunteer to give him some of my extra weight.

    Made a great block on one of the long TD pass plays. Hopefully he continues to develop and will become a force in the passing game.

    Liked what I saw in Victor, I think he can develop into a force for us. Needs to keep improving but the talent is undeniable.
