Criner’s Critique
“Mike is going to be a valuable asset to our team this season after enjoying a prolific career at Northern Iowa University as a wide receiver and a punt returner. He was one of the fastest players on the Ohio State team before he transferred. His ability to get vertical and spread out the defense along with his soft hands will prove to be beneficial for our offensive scheme.”
