2002 Media Guide: JaJa Riley is another of the Buckeyes’ talented, albeit young, running backs … asked to be redshirted last year in an effort to get stronger … ran with power and authority in the spring … a slashing type of runner…has good speed and hands and has the ability to play in the slot and stretch the defense … seems to have a quiet resolve about him … will play a lot of
football before his collegiate career is over.
