Ohio State's receivers, tight ends are dominating one statistical area over the past three seasons
Ohio State’s receivers and tight ends are really good. That’s probably the least surprising statement you’ll read all afternoon.
It’s easy to turn on a game or look at the statistics and see just how good the Buckeye receivers have been over the last few seasons. But Pro Football Focus broke it down into an even more impressive category.
PFF recently released the Top 5 B1G players with the highest passer rating when targeted over the last three seasons (2018-20). All five have worn the scarlet and gray. Here’s the breakdown:
- Terry McLaurin, Ohio State — 153.3
- Jeremy Ruckert, Ohio State — 143.8
- Chris Olave, Ohio State — 141.5
- Garrett Wilson, Ohio State — 139.4
- Parris Campbell, Ohio State — 139.2
We’ve seen Ohio State’s explosiveness and talent at the receiver position on full display for several years. But this takes it to another level. Remember, this is a conference that has seen receivers like Tyler Johnson (Minnesota), Rashod Bateman (Minnesota), Rondale Moore (Purdue), KJ Hamler (Penn State), David Bell (Purdue) and plenty of others over the past three seasons.
But the Buckeyes stand out and are performing above and beyond their competition. Makes it even easier to understand how they’ve won four straight B1G titles.
