Sermon, a talented back, is a graduate transfer. Wherever he ends up, he will be able to play immediately. Last season, while splitting time, he rushed for 385 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Two seasons ago, Sermon accounted for 1,128 yards and rushing for 13 TDs. Again, the ability is certainly there. But, where will he end up?
Some are thinking Ohio State. According to 247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions, he has a 100 percent chance of choosing the Buckeyes.
The Buckeyes, in fact, do make sense as a destination, too. Of course J.K. Dobbins is leaving Ohio State for the NFL, so the Buckeyes won’t have their top back returning.
However, Master Teague emerged as the team’s backup during his freshman campaign. But Teague injured his Achilles earlier this month. He may miss the entire 2020 season.
Ohio State, for once, may have a running back problem. Could Sermon be the answer?
That’s what people are pointing toward for now.
