The Buckeyes now have another 1,000-yard receiver as Garrett Wilson enters his name into the Ohio State record books. He entered the Michigan game needing just 61 yards to hit the century mark and that has now happened as CJ Stroud and Wilson connected on a five-yard strike in the 3rd quarter.
Wilson is the second Ohio State receiver to hit that mark, joining Jaxon Smith-Njigba. JSN was the 6th Ohio State receiver in program history to hit the mark and Wilson is now the 7th.
The Austin (Texas) product broke the 700-yard mark last season in the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign. Wilson had 11 combined touchdowns through his first two seasons with the Buckeyes and now has __ in the 2021 campaign, with more football left to be played.
Other members of the Ohio State receiver 1,000-yard club include David Boston, Terry Glenn, Cris Carter, Michael Jenkins and Parris Campbell.
The Buckeyes could end up with three 1,000-yard receivers with Chris Olave hovering near the mark as well. It is even more remarkable when you factor that the Buckeyes could end up with three players to reach the number in a single season.
Stay tuned with Olave close, a special season is truly here for the Buckeyes on the offensive side of the ball.
