The 2014 season should give Ohio State fans the opportunity to see what Dontre Wilson can really do.
After operating mainly as a decoy his freshman year, Wilson snagged the starting H-back spot (known as the Percy Harvin role) this spring. The Buckeyes will need him to provide a big boost after losing senior wideout Corey Brown, who led the team in receiving each of the last two seasons.
Ohio State returns seniors Devin Smith and Evan Spencer—two outside receivers with loads of experience. Both seniors have struggled to find consistency throughout their careers though, so Urban Meyer will need them to step up.
Other pass-catchers such as Michael Thomas and Corey Smith surged this spring, and while both are very talented, they each need to prove the can produce at a consistent level.
If they don't, Ohio State can lean on a pair of fantastic tight ends.
Jeff Heuerman is back, and he'll be ready to go for the season after suffering a foot injury that cost him most of Ohio State's spring practice. Heuerman caught 26 passes for 466 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, and if he has the kind of season Meyer wants from him, those numbers could double.
Behind Heuerman is Nick Vannett, who thrived as a backup last year and during spring while Heuerman was out this year. Vannett was so good, in fact, that Meyer is entertaining the possibility of getting both on the field at the same time.
It's safe to say Meyer has a lot of talented options on the perimeter.
