As of yesterday, Trey Sermon is a full-fledged member of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. While the uninitiated may be unfamiliar with the now-former Oklahoma running back, one video from 2017 should remind them.
Following Sermon’s transfer to Ohio State, a video of the Oklahoma-Ohio State game from 2017 has regained traction. One play in particular shows off the kind of skill that Sermon brings to the table.
On the play, Sermon takes the direct snap and scrambles through a hole on the left side. He gets 10 yards before being met by a Buckeyes defender, but promptly stiff-arms the tackler for a first down. Eyeing even more yardage, Sermon then trucks another Ohio State player to pick up another couple of yards.
Sermon went on to lead the Sooners in rushing with 62 yards on 17 carries in 31-16 win over the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium.

Now Sermon returns to Ohio Stadium, where he will presumably become the starting running back in his final year of college.
In three years at Oklahoma, Sermon averaged 6.1 yards per carry for 2,076 yards and 22 touchdowns. He added another 36 receptions for 391 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
What kind of production will Trey Sermon have at Ohio State in 2020?
