Ezekiel Elliott is one of the most promising running back talents in college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes star has been rewarded for his strong efforts on the field.
According to a report from College Football Talk, Elliott has won the Big Ten’s MVP award this season.
While Ohio State isn’t headed to the playoff, Elliott has to be proud of the season that he put together. It wasn’t the Heisman winning season that many expected him to have, but it was a year full of consistency and impressive play.
Elliott carried the football 262 times for 1,672 yards and 19 touchdowns.
There is no question that Elliott was the right choice for the Big Ten MVP award. No one else in the conference was as important to his team or played to the level that he did.
Elliott will now focus on the next chapter of his career as he prepares to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
