One Ohio State football player is getting forgotten and he shouldn't be

The Ohio State football team has a stable of receivers in their room. One of them is getting lost in the shuffle when he shouldn't be.

The Ohio State football team is known for having the best receivers in the country. Players like Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, and Marvin Harrison Jr. are just some of the great guys to come out of the program in recent years. Even with losing talent like that every year, the Buckeyes still reload.

Ohio State will have to replace Harrison Jr. this year and Emeka Egbuka will step into that number-one receiver role. There's been a lot of hype surrounding Jeremiah Smith as he enters the college football world as a true freshman. He's an absolute stud and deserves all of the hype he's been getting.

Carnell Tate is a guy we saw a lot of last year and should see even more as well. The former five-star recruit was the only freshman to see significant playing time when the receiver room was loaded last year. There's still one guy we haven't mentioned that I think is going to have a big year.

That is Brandon Inniss. He was supposed to be the best recruit in Ohio State's class and was rated as so most of his senior year. He played sparingly a year ago, only catching one pass in his freshman season. It was a 58-yard touchdown in the Purdue game, which is cool.

It's not really clear to me why he's getting overlooked. He's still extremely fast, a fluid route-runner, and he catches everything near by. He very well could be the slot receiver next season and has the opportunity to be the next Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

Now that Will Howard is in the saddle as the starting quarterback, the Ohio State football team is going to be more prolific through the air. Inniss should be a bigger part of their game plan this year and could turn into one of the next great Buckeye receivers.
