Freshman Chris Dinkins could develop into a big receiver that creates mismatches all over the field. At 6-foot-1, 224 pounds, Dinkins is heavier than several of the Cowboys linebackers.
“That guy’s a beast,” junior receiver Josh Cooper said. “He’s either going to run past you or run over you. He’s a big train coming through there.”
While he may not make an immediate impact at receiver this season, Dinkins could play a key role on special teams as a freshman and, if he gets more comfortable in the offense, he could help at receiver as well.
Dinkins was one of the Cowboys’ top recruits and has impressed with his size and athleticism. He could be a key contributor on special teams so he’s unlikely to redshirt but it could be the middle of the season before he begins to make an impact on the offensive side of the ball.
Regardless, he’s such a unique talent, he’s worth waiting for. O
n special teams he could be one of OSU’s top performers until he’s ready to make a impact at receiver.
