Urban Meyer isn’t one to shovel undue praise on his players, so when he says someone is perfect for their position — it’s worth noting. And when he says that of a true freshman playing tailback in only his third game, it’s really nothing short of jaw-dropping.
Ohio State broke away from Army 38-7 behind 172 yards rushing from J.K. Dobbins. After the game, Meyer reflected on Dobbins strong performance, “He’s a perfect tailback. He’s a space player that we need…J.K. and Parris, they’re two of our best playmakers right now.” Speaking to media after the game, Dobbins reflected on his quick rise as one of the Buckeye’s best playmakers, “To be honest, I knew I would get a good start, but I didn’t think it would be anything like this. I just feel like I can only continue to get better.”
