Ohio State Feature: Wide Receiver Noah Brown
Here's an overview of the talents of Buckeyes receiver Noah Brown:
"I'd like to say that I am a jack of all trades" Brown said. "Route running is probably my strongest point, however I can stretch the field as well. During Freshman year, I had a lot of success with my blocking, so this is something I take great pride in".
Brown said this during preseason training. It reconfirmed what the Buckeyes players and coaches said about him during preseason last year.
In the interim, he broke his lower leg, which meant that he had to stop training twelve months ago. High hopes were pinned on him, as Ohio State attempted to replace Evan Spencer and Devin Smith. Michael Thomas and Brown would have made a good pairing, however this did not come to fruition.
Brown, who is six foot two inches tall and weighs 218 pounds, has now completely recovered. Nonetheless, he is still perhaps shaking off a little rust, as Ohio State head into a match this weekend versus Oklahoma.
Ed Warinner, Ohio State's offensive coordinator, believes that the team has to be patient with Brown to get the best out of him.
"He has had a long recovery period" said Warinner. "He made it through preseason training however, and kept improving....Given that he has been inactive since August 2015, it is remarkable that he has progressed to the point where he is able to assist us. I believe that he is ready to play a major part once more".
