Ohio State OC Kevin Wilson says Buckeyes could be as 'individually talented' as ever
There’s a reason everyone on Ohio State’s roster wanted to play football this season. The Buckeyes know they have a legitimate shot to win a national championship in 2020.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson validated those beliefs by making an appearance on Ryan Day’s radio program on 97.1 The Fan on Thursday. He believes that with the players coming back, and the newcomers coming in, Ohio State has an opportunity to be one of the most talented offensively he’s seen since arriving in 2017.
According to Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch, Wilson said that Ohio State has the “chance to maybe be as individually talented as we’ve been.” The OC did say, however, that the key will be to turn that individual talent into collective talent.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson is now on the radio show: "We have a chance to maybe be as individually talented as we've been." Said the key is to make it connected talent.

Ohio State returns a strong offensive line, anchored by Wyatt Davis and Josh Myers. Quarterback Justin Fields is a Heisman Trophy contender and receivers Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave are big-time playmakers.
The one question comes at the running back position, as the Buckeyes have dealt with a slew of injuries. However, with Master Teague getting healthier and the addition of former Oklahoma back Trey Sermon, there’s more optimism that Ohio State has the ability to replace J.K. Dobbins, even it’s by committee.
There’s a lot of offensive talent back in Columbus this year. It should be fun to see what this group is capable of accomplishing on the field.
