We didn’t see much of freshman running back Evan Pryor during the 2021 season but that might change this fall. In his second year in Columbus, he looks capable of playing a pretty big role in the Buckeyes offense.

Pryor earned cheers from the crowd in the second quarter of the spring game on Saturday, slicing up the defense for a 22-yard touchdown run. It was one of the more impressive runs of the afternoon.

TreVeyon Henderson will still be the primary back for Ohio State this season, but there’s a spot for the backup role available heading into 2022. So far, both Pryor and Miyan Williams have shown potential to fill that void.

Pryor appeared in just 4 games for the Buckeyes last year, maintaining his redshirt status. He totaled 21 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown in limited action. He also caught 2 passes for 8 yards.

Pryor’s most productive outing was in a 54-7 win over Indiana in Bloomington, taking 11 carries for 48 yards. He scored his lone touchdown in a 59-7 victory over Akron, finishing the day with 35 yards on the ground.
