The Ohio State football team has its sights set on winning a national championship this season. The roster is built for it and the coaching staff knows it. Offensively and defensively, this team is stacked. Making the College Football Playoff is the bare minimum expectation for this team.

One of the leaders of this team is TreVeyon Henderson. He decided to come back for his senior season to have one last run at a Big Ten and a national championship. He is one of the best players the Buckeyes have and was one of their two primary offensive weapons a year ago.

Blocking for Henderson has been an issue in each of the last two seasons. He hasn't had the creases to run through as he did when he was a true freshman in 2021. Injuries have been another problem. He's played in just 18 games in the last two seasons because of various injuries.

Henderson needs to make it through this Ohio State football season healthy. Not only does it give the Buckeyes their best chance to win, but it also keeps Henderson's draft stock high for next season. He's had injuries to his knee, foot, and head throughout his career.

Henderson's injury issues is part of the reason why they went and got Quinshon Judkins from the transfer portal. Bringing in Judkins gives the Buckeyes another stud at the running back position to give them some insurance is great. It also means that Henderson doesn't need to carry the full load.


When he's healthy, Henderson is one of the most dynamic players in the entire country. He has breakaway speed, great vision, and solid hands out of the backfield. He just needs to focus on maintaining that health for the first time in his career. If he does that, he could be an All-American.
