Ohio State records TreVeyon Henderson could break in 2022

Anyone who paid attention to Ohio State last year knows how good the Buckeye offense was in 2021. The Scarlet and Gray ranked as the top overall offense in the country, but much of that came due to the passing attack. Ohio State averaged just 180.31 yards per game on the ground, just inside the top 50 nationally.

TreVeyon Henderson was a big reason the Buckeyes were that good on the ground. The freshman, who was formerly the top-ranked running back in the country coming out of high school, may not have started the season as the Scarlet and Gray’s No. 1 back, but quickly established himself as such. He forced his way into being Ohio State’s top ball carrier, passing multiple more veteran players along the way.

In 2022, Henderson is the Buckeyes’ unquestioned No. 1 running back. And while Tony Alford would like to get carries for other backs, Henderson has proven his talent is too good to not have on the field more often than not.

While the Scarlet and Gray passing attack is expected to be prolific once again, head coach Ryan Day is likely to take a more balanced approach to running the ball this year. This could mean big things for Henderson. As we did with quarterback CJ Stroud and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-NjigbaBucknuts looked back through the Ohio State record books to see what marks Henderson might be able to break as a sophomore this fall.
