Pick Analysis: Grew up in Cincinnati before moving to Florida after his freshman year of high school. Participated in football, basketball and track as a prep -- rushing for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior. Committed to Ohio State, but didn't qualify academically, so he spent the 2009 fall semester at Fork Union Military Academy (Virginia) in order to raise his ACT score. Followed in the footsteps of Eddie George, who also started at Fork Union before heading to Ohio State. Arrived in Columbus in 2010 and played in seven games as a true freshman, rushing 24 times for 141 yards (5.9-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Started the first three games of the '11 season due to a teammate's suspension; played in 13 games overall and carried 106-566-6 (5.3) and caught 10-73-0 (7.3). Played in 10 games (eight starts) in '12 and piled up 185-970-16 (5.2) on the ground and 8-51-1 (6.4) receiving. Missed two games with a sprained MCL in his right knee. Was involved in an assault investigation during the summer of '13; was a "person of interest" after an altercation with a woman at a bar. Charges were dropped, but he was suspended for OSU's first three games for conduct not representative of the football program. Was a force upon returning to the gridiron, amassing 208-1,521-15 (7.3) rushing and 16-147-3 (9.2) receiving in 11 games (nine starts). Averaged 156.1 rushing yards per game in conference play and ended his career with nine consecutive 100-yard games. Became the first 1,000-yard running back during Urban Meyer's tenure as a head coach. Did not start against Illinois due to an academics issue, but came off the bench to put on a 24-246-4 performance -- along with a touchdown catch. Also had a 226-yard game against Michigan, the most ever for an OSU runner in that storied rivalry. Named the Big Ten's Running Back of the Year.
