247 Sports analyst projects Ohio State offense to be nation's best in 2022
The Ohio State Buckeyes’ offense may be the best in the country according to Brad Crawford of 24/7 Sports who projected the offense as the best in the country ahead of teams like USC, Alabama, and Georgia.
The main reason of course is the return of Heisman runner-up CJ Stoud and running back TreVeyon Henderson who rushed for over 1,200 yards last year. Star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is also back after a dramatic 2021 performance.
Here is what else the site said about the Buckeye offense:
“A wealth of riches and no signs of weakness. That’s the ideal depiction of Ohio State’s personnel offensively this fall entering Ryan Day’s fourth season as coach,” wrote Brad Crawford of 247 Sports. “This is his most talented team yet on that side of the football and he knows it. C.J. Stroud is a co-Heisman frontrunner alongside Alabama’s Young, and tailback TreVeyon Henderson is coming off a 1,258-yard freshman season and averaging nearly seven yards per carry. Wide receivers coach Brian Hartline is an elite recruiter and his position group is stacked with future early-round selections, this coming after the Buckeyes placed Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson on Day 1 in April’s NFL Draft. This unit has a chance to be record-setting at Ohio State.”
The Buckeyes’ offense was explosive last year and gave defenses fits, so it’s understandable why the site would pick them as the top offense coming back.
