So why does he go with the hurdle?

For what it’s worth, Elliott ran hurdles in high school. I’m guessing these have higher stakes associated with them.
More important than any one move, Elliott recorded his eighth straight 100-yard game for the No. 1 Buckeyes, which improved to 4-0 with a 38-12 win on Saturday.
As if it wasn’t tough enough to stop Elliott, now defenders will have to take his leaping ability into account. That’s not fair.
