Ohio State's Dontre Wilson showed shades of Braxton Miller with an incredible spin move against Tulsa.

It seems the Buckeyes' wide receivers enjoy making people miss. Ohio State's Dontre Wilson brought us back to last year when Braxton Miller put a Virginia Tech Hokie through the spin cycle on his way to a 53-yard touchdown. Braxton Miller's touchdown took the world by storm and showcased Miller's ability to make a man miss.

How does Dontre Wilson's play compare with Braxton Miller's? We'll let you be the judge of that.

Wilson took a pass in the flat from quarterback J.T. Barrett and went to work. Although he didn't make it into the end zone like Miller, Wilson swerved his way through two Tulsa defenders for the first down. Buckeye fans should have a bright future in store if they can continue to replace senior wide receivers the way Wilson has filled Miller's shoes.

Wilson, who is a senior wideout, finished the day with three catches for 38 yards as the Buckeyes downed Tulsa 48-3.
