COLUMBUS, Ohio - If there is one position that fans and non-fans will be paying special attention to this year when it comes to the Ohio State Buckeyes it will be the wide receiver position. It has been well documented that the passing game in 2011 was not one of the highlights in the annals of recent college football offense.

Enter new wide receiver coach Zach Smith who is now charged with working with a unit that by all accounts underperformed into making them a unit capable of running Urban Meyer and Tom Herman's offense.

A wide receiver that didn't get much of an opportunity last year was Tyrone Williams. The tall receiver out of Cleveland (Ohio) looks the part with the height and speed but never really was able to put it together in his first two years with the program.

Even Smith now admits that his first impressions of Williams in the spring was not a great one and it had nothing to do with the physical traits that he possessed. But now Williams has seemed to turn a corner and is starting to perform as a college receiver. That doesn't mean that he has emerged as a top threat on the team but he has finally bought into the system and is 'drinking the kool-aid'.

Smith talked at length about Williams and his progress during a Friday interview session and we have his comments here in this free video update.
