Ohio State's Mitch Rossi reveals FB he admires, addresses getting carries out of I-formation with Buckeyes
Ohio State tight end turned fullback Mitch Rossi talked about a full back he admires and discussed getting touches out of the backfield this season Tuesday according to Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors.
Rossi said Kyle Juszczyk of the San Fransisco 49ers is a player he admires greatly as a fellow fullback. When asked if he would make a highlight catch like Juszczyk had on Sunday, Rossi said he might.

Rossi started his career at Ohio State as a tight end but moved to the fullback position this season. Now getting carries out of the I-formation, Rossi admits that his younger self would be happy.

Rossi has only seen a few touches this season, but he will likely continue to get touches in the backfield.
