Draft Scout Sam Hubbard News
01/02/17 - In the end, the Ohio State Buckeyes' youth and inexperience was exploited by Clemson in the desert. On the bright side, most of the team that reached the College Football Playoff with only six returning starters and the youngest squad in a Power Five conference will be back next year, likely including quarterback J.T. Barrett. Ohio State sent a record dozen players to the NFL draft last year, leaving coach Urban Meyer with a young team he thought could be a year away from competing for a championship. But Barrett carried the overachieving team on his back when the passing game faltered, H-back Curtis Samuel emerged as a star and the Buckeyes finished 11-1 with a thrilling double-overtime win over Michigan. But Ohio State's inexperienced offensive linemen were exposed and Barrett was pummeled.
Just one starter - All-American center Pat Elflein - is out of eligibility, along with punter Cameron Johnston and kicker Tyler Durbin. The rest of the starters and most of their backups were underclassmen. The Buckeyes likely will be dinged by some players leaving early for the NFL again but likely will be a preseason top 5 pick and make another strong run for the playoff. "Our anticipation is to get back here next year and take a good swing at it and realize we've got a lot of work to do," Meyer said. Curtis Samuel, the only player in the nation with 800 yards passing and 700 yards rushing, has another year of eligibility but could leave early for the NFL. He said he hasn't made a decision yet. On the defense, the fifth best in the nation this year, middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan, defensive end Tyquan Lewis and cornerback Gareon Conley are juniors and could make the jump early. Hooker, a redshirt sophomore, had said he'd be back, but on Saturday night said he'd have to talk to his family before making a final decision. Linebacker Chris Worley and defensive end Sam Hubbard said they would return. - AP Sports
