A Big Ten defensive coach said that he sees shades of Jalin Marshall and Ezekiel Elliott in Ohio State junior RB Curtis Samuel.
"Every time we watched [Samuel] on film, I thought he was a really good player who sure seemed to make a lot of plays," the coach said. While he didn't offer any specifics in his comparison of Samuel to Elliott, he noted that Samuel's versatility is reminiscent to that of Marshall. Last season, the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder contributed through his running (17 carries for 132 yards, 7.8 YPC), receiving (22 catches for 298 yards) and return prowess (nine kick returns for 207 yards).

Ohio State sophomore RB Curtis Samuel underwent successful surgery for an undisclosed injury on Tuesday.

While the school's yet to release a statement, it's been reported that Samuel underwent foot surgery. The likely timetable for his recovery would be six weeks, meaning the 5-foot-11, 196-pound sophomore could miss a portion of spring practice. He rushed for 421 yards and three touchdowns this past season.

Ohio State true freshman RB Curtis Samuel rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in Saturday's 66-0 romp over Kent State.

He also caught four balls for 40 yards. The Brooklyn native, a four-star athlete, is also capable of playing wide receiver or defensive back. He goes 5-foot-11, 186-pounds and runs 4.36 forty. Samuel obviously got more work today because the game got out of hand, but we expect him to see the field more often going forward. He came into this game with 71 yards on 12 carries in the first two games.

Curtis Samuel, a four-star athlete in the 2014 recruiting class, committed to Ohio State over the weekend.

Hailing from Brooklyn, Samuel gives Urban Meyer a myriad of tactical options, as he can capably play running back, wide receiver or defensive back at the BCS level. A 5-foot-11, 186-pound burner with 4.36 speed in the 40-yard dash, Samuel has spectacular feet and natural ball skills. He may not be world-class in any area, but his skills play above average across the board.
