COLUMBUS — Ohio State receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba wasn't getting a lot of attention last year at this time.
People were talking more about NFL prospects Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson.
But Smith-Njigba stepped out of the shadow of the stars to pace the Buckeyes with 95 catches and 1,606 yards.
Smith-Njigba entered spring practice 2022 as the undisputed No. 1 wideout, the guy who will be getting the preseason attention.
The annual Scarlet and Gray game on Saturday will be less about him and more about Ohio State’s other receivers.
