There are few running backs as talented as Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliot in college football, but Saturday he proved that there are few players in college football as athletic.
On a routine running play, Zeke took a hand-off and scaled most of a human being. Northern Illinois corner 6-foot-1 Albert Smalls squared up for a tackle on the Buckeyes rusher but whiffed as Elliot jumped over his head while he was bending over in anticipation.
Whenever Ohio State needs a big play, Zeke is usually ready deliver in ways only he knows how. If he keeps this up, he’ll be a staple in the Heisman discussion.
