    A trip through the Eleven Warriors archive tells the story of Binjimen Victor.

    Prepare to repeatedly read "potential," "consistency" or some variation of those words.

    On Jan. 18, 2016, the day he committed to Ohio State, he was labeled a "pretty raw athlete" with "a ton of upside." Before arriving on campus, Victor told Eleven Warriors he was trying to gain weight and muscle to play immediately. During his radio show on Sept. 29, 2016, Urban Meyer said, "Damn, I want to play him," referring to the then-freshman receiver. Victor caught his first touchdown, a 25-yard grab, against Maryland on Nov. 12, 2016.

    Year 1: four catches, 64 yards, one touchdown

    While taking part in 2017 spring practices, Victor was named as a potential deep threat. On April 12, 2017, an article was published about him needing to "scale (a) mountain of inconsistency," which included Urban Meyer saying he "wasn't a go-hard player all the time" as a freshman. The rising sophomore was named a breakout candidate on July 20, 2017. His increased size and confidence were noted just weeks before the season began. An article published on Oct. 11 mentioned Victor could become the "next Buckeye great" if his progress continued, and it included a quote from Meyer likening his natural ability to that of Cris Carter and Michael Thomas.

    Year 2: 23 catches, 349 yards, seven touchdowns

    Victor caught five passes for 91 yards and a touchdown as a rising junior in the 2018 spring game, prompting an article about him flashing his potential. After the game, Meyer called him "one of the most talented receivers we have ever had." He was named as someone who should be a go-to receiver by Eleven Warriors in June 2018. Victor's crowning moment of his career to this date came with what Ryan Day called one of the best plays he has seen live, a miraculous 47-yard touchdown that led to a comeback win against Penn State. After the game, Day said that was just one catch, noting Victor has to "keep building from there." The next week, he had a 30-yard touchdown catch, which Parris Campbell said gave him "chills." Victor had one touchdown in the remaining eight games.

    Year 3: 21 catches, 354 yards, four touchdowns

    The narrative continued into this spring.

    He, along with Austin Mack, has to figure out a legacy to leave behind. The ever-present question of whether he can reach his potential was asked in March. On April 1, he was named as a breakout candidate. Victor went ahead and caught a 98-yard pass from Justin Fields in the 2019 spring game that gave the Buckeye faithful a lasting memory entering the summer.

    Ranking Ohio State’s 2019 Playmakers on Offense: No. 6 — WR Binjimen Victor
    August 1, 2019by Tony Gerdeman2 comments

    The No. 6 player on this list enters his third season in the starting rotation for the Buckeyes and has put up 11 touchdown catches over the last two years.

    No. 6 — Binjimen Victor, Redshirt Senior Wide Receiver
    Binjimen Victor is perpetual potential, constantly on the cusp of breaking out.

    Urban Meyer called him one of the most physically gifted receivers he’s ever recruited.

    So far in his three years, Victor has a total of just 48 catches, but that doesn’t tell the entire story.

    Ohio State rotates two receivers at each position, which means Victor has split most of his reps the previous two seasons with classmate Austin Mack at the X receiver position. Last year when Mack went down with an injury, Terry McLaurin moved over from Z to X and then Victor was splitting reps with McLaurin.

    Receivers are kept fresh this way, but it also keeps the numbers down for the outside receivers.

    This season will bring about Ohio State’s third starting quarterback in Victor’s three years as a starter. With this being his final season as a Buckeye, and with the NFL Draft looming, Victor will want to put all of his skills on display.

    matt_thatsme Ain’t nobody got time for that

    I would love to see more 50/50 balls thrown Victor’s way, because with his size, athleticism and skill set it is more like 90/10. If I’m Fields and see Victor outside matched up against man coverage and no help over the top, I’m thinking big play every time.

    Seems to have become a reliable pass catcher. Very happy to see him having success.

    While he's had bigger plays in other games this is the best overall game I can remember him having. Not just one huge play then nothing

    Glad he got the back shoulder play early in the game. He seems much stronger and more consistent this year. With his frame, just doing that will get him drafted.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    Urban used to get so frustrated with BV because he has so much potential but barely shows it. Man, he's "solved the puzzle" as Urban talked about.

    I'm very impressed by his confidence and toughness these first two games. Kid is going to make himself some money if he continues improving.

    Oh yeah, that Brian Hartline is a wizard!

    That or maybe there's not the whole "you have to block elite to play" stuff?

    I mean sometimes being a good blocker instead of an elite one is OK if they bring a lot to the table other wise?

    Was checking how Victor's career 16.4 YPC stacks up in the OSU record book b/c that seems like a pretty big number. Devin Smith is an obvious one near the top at 20.7. Wouldn't have guessed Michael Jenkins had 17.6. Terry Glenn's 1995 was so ridiculous. Hard to be more productive than 22 yards a catch on 64 catches with 17 td's..
