The primary headliners at wide receiver for Ohio State so far this season have been junior Brian Robiskie and sophomore Brian Hartline, but the player with the most down-the-road NFL potential figures to be exciting sophomore Ray Small.

The electrifying 5-foot-11, 175 pounder flashed his highlight-film ability on Saturday night against Minnesota. On a 37-yard reverse, Small kicked it into an extra gear that showcased his awesome speed and big-play potential. He also caught two passes for 20 yards.
