Ohio State is no stranger to high-volume running backs. On Saturday, true freshman running back TreVeyon Henderson joined an elite class of Ohio State running backs.

In the first half against Purdue, Henderson has rushed for 72 yards and 2 touchdowns on 6 carries.

Henderson has now rushed for over 1,000 yards this season, joining Robert Smith, Maurice Clarett, and J.K. Dobbins as the only true freshmen to hit that mark in a season.

Smith rushed for 1,126 yards in 12 games in 1990. Clarett rushed for 1,237 yards in his only season at Ohio State in 2002. Finally, Dobbins rushed for 1.403 yards in 2017.

Henderson has a chance to pass top all three of his running backs through the remaining 2021 regular season or the postseason bowl games.
