Posey is set to be a co-starter along with Corey Brown at the one receiver position on Saturday. Brown is also returning to action after having to sit out last weeks loss at Purdue with an ankle injury. Posey’s presence on the field could boost the passing attack of the Buckeyes which has been lacking for a large percentage of the season. Establishing some kind of a passing game would allow OSU a little breathing room near the line of scrimmage, opening up running space for the backs and quarterback Braxton Miller. Penn State’s defensive is one of the best in the Big Ten so any offensive help would be appreciated.
The coaching staff and Luke Fickell hope Posey provides a spark to the offense in the same way that the return of Boom Herron lead to some nice mid-season wins. He will be introduced pre-game just like all the other seniors, and the administration is hoping fans will be receptive of the suspended players as they are honored. The game has a kick off time of 3:30 Saturday.
Posey being optimistic about the first suspension.
