A Coach at Ohio State Made a Pitch to Usain Bolt to Play for the Buckeyes

By Tyler Bingham - Aug 19 2016

Usain Bolt winning gold in the 200 and 100 meter heats didn't surprise anyone. The "fastest man alive" was still head and shoulders above the rest of the runners in his competition at Rio, which turned at least one head in the world of college athletics.

Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith tweeted to Usain:

Usain would not be the only Olympian going to football when the Olympics end. USA Rugby's Nate Ebner currently plays football for the New England Patriots who also had 2012 Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps on their roster. 

If Urban Meyer can convert quarterbacks to highly drafted receivers, certainly he could do the same with Bolt.
