Kirk Herbstreit Thinks These Two Ohio State Players Will "Break Out" This Season

Ohio State's offense has a lot of production to replace this fall, with Ezekiel Elliott, Braxton Miller and Michael Thomas, among other players, gone to the NFL. 

Thankfully for the Buckeyes, Urban Meyer has recruited at an extremely high level since he arrived in Columbus, so there are four and five-star recruits waiting to take the place of those former standouts. 

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit was asked on Twitter today to name some Ohio State players he thinks will "break out" this fall. 

His answer: four-star redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber and four-star true freshman wide receiver Austin Mack. 

">@KirkHerbstreit who do you think will breakout this year for osu? Any freshmen to keep an eye out for?
