Terry McLaurin was a key playmaker for the Ohio State Buckeyes before becoming a star for the Washington Football Team.
Despite the fact that he hasn’t played for the program in years, McLaurin still keeps in touch with his alma mater. McLaurin was asked about Ohio State’s current wide receiver duo during a recent interview with The Spun. He won’t be surprised to see Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson make plays in the NFL next year, based on his response. Wilson should be a weapon in the slot at the pro level, according to McLaurin, when discussing Ohio State’s receiving corps. Wilson has 23 catches for 391 yards and three touchdowns through four games this season. He’s averaging 16 points per game. During his time at Ohio State, he averaged 1 yard per reception.
In addition to praising Wilson’s abilities, McLaurin listed a few reasons why he thinks Olave is a good prospect. He’s clearly impressed by Olave’s route-running abilities. Olave has been a star for the Buckeyes since 2019.
“With Chris Olave, I think he’s smooth as well but also very precise with his routes,” McLaurin said. “He can run any route on the route tree from inside and outside. He can stretch the ball vertically and has great run after the catch ability. I think both guys can hear their names called very early next spring.”
Olave has been a star for the Buckeyes since 2019. Many predicted he’d enter the NFL Draft in 2021, but he decided to stay for another season. Olave and Wilson should both be drafted very early in 2022 at this rate.
At this time, it’s unclear who will be the first to leave the board. Nokia News
