Ohio State will get lift with return of WR Dontre Wilson
On the week of the biggest game of the year, Ohio State received some good news.
Wide receiver Dontre Wilson – who missed last week’s game against Michigan State due to an undisclosed injury – was cleared to play in this weekend’s monstrous clash between the Buckeyes and Michigan.
“Dontre is cleared to play,” head coach Urban Meyer said on Tuesday.
Wilson provides another weapon in the passing attack for the Buckeyes, as he’s caught 26 passes for 343 yards and five TDs on the season. His presence will prove to be a huge benefit against a Michigan defense that’s one of the best units in the country against the pass.
This news comes on the same day that it was reported that Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight – who missed last week’s contest against Indiana – was throwing in practice this week. Wolverines wide receiver Amara Darboh was the one to tell the media.
The Game between Michigan and Ohio State is one of the best rivalries in college football. Implications are even higher this year, as both teams are in a B1G title and College Football Playoff race.
Players aren’t wanting to miss this game for any reason.
