Receivers standing out as Ohio State retools passing game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Parris Campbell is distinguishing himself at receiver, and K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin and Binjimen Victor are right behind him as the Buckeyes try to breathe some life back into their passing game this spring.

The four wide receivers, along with Austin Mack and Johnnie Dixon, all saw playing time and showed flashes of talent last year, but none broke out as a top playmaker or reliable deep threat as expected. Meyer needs that to change next season, especially after the departure of the team's two top receivers, H-back Curtis Samuel and wideout Noah Brown.

Campbell, a rising junior who had 13 catches for 121 yards last year, is working at the hybrid running back/receiver position vacated by Samuel. Campbell, Meyer said, "is that guy right now."
