How Chris Olave Almost Picked Oregon Instead Of Ohio State

Chris Olave is not only one of the best players of the last decade of Ohio State football, but he’s also one of the most beloved by the Buckeye fanbase as well.

But he very easily could have entered Saturday’s massive game in the Horseshoe as a member of the Oregon Ducks instead of Ohio State.

He grew up a big fan of Oregon, and dreamed of playing college football as a Duck. So how close did that come to happening?

Buckeye Scoop’s Kevin Noon joins host Tom Orr to discuss the inside story on Olave’s recruitment.

Plus, could a big change be on the way for the Ohio State running backs? The rotation that Buckeye fans weren’t happy about in the opener could soon be a thing of the past.
