Ohio State football star running back Master Teague is making fans do a double-take after his work in the weight room.
After backing up Trey Sermon last season, Ohio State football star Master Teague really hit the gym this winter. A photo of him working out at Ohio State shows he put on a bunch of muscle during the offseason.
Ohio State finished as the national runner-up a season ago. Teague had 514 rushing yards and eight touchdowns backing up Sermon on a COVID-shortened 2020 college football season. He will split time with incoming five-star running back TreVeyon Henderson, but don’t try to tell Teague it is not his ball to carry. Teague looks like the running back equivalent of D.K. Metcalf these days.
Look for Master Teague to help keep the Ohio State offense afloat in 2021
Ohio State will almost certainly be one of the five best teams in the country again. However, the Buckeyes do have uncertainty at the quarterback position with Justin Fields turning pro after his junior season in Columbus. This leaves a three-way battle for the starting job between CJ Stroud, Jack Miller and in-coming five-star Kyle McCord. What will serve them is a strong ground game.
Fortunately for whoever ends up winning the starting quarterback job between McCord, Miller and Stroud, they will have a pair of great ball carriers to hand the pigskin off to in Teague and Henderson. Though Henderson could be electrifying in his own right, Teague looks to be a total bruiser in the backfield for the Buckeyes. Good luck trying to tackle this shredded running back.
Teague looks like he kept up with his New Year’s resolution alright by hitting the gym relentlessly.
