SHARP MAKES ADJUSTMENTS
Still not a fan of the new kickoff rule, OSU's Quinn Sharp continues make the most of his powerful right leg. And in different ways.
“I've been putting a lot more hang time on my ball, compared to driving it more last year,” Sharp said.
Of Sharp's 24 kickoffs, 21 have produced touchbacks. And yet, Sharp actually wouldn't mind more runback attempts. Opponents are averaging just 14.5 yards per return on the few kicks they do return, compared to the 24-yard-line spot on touchbacks.
“With the hang time, if somebody is willing to risk taking it out, I think that would help our cover team a lot,” Sharp said.
