You can't guard Ohio State's Michael Thomas, even when he only uses 1 hand


Ohio State's Michael Thomas is one of the best wide receivers in the Big Ten, if not the country. Thomas can go deep, over the middle, and find ways to get space against even the best defensive backs in the country, leading to his trademark #shhhh after torching somebody. And now, in warmups before Michigan State, he's just casually showing off another weapon in his arsenal, the one-handed catch.

I mean, just look at this.

Or this!

Ohio State will need Thomas, their leading pass catcher, to have a big game against a possibly suspect Michigan State secondary if the Buckeyes want the W this afternoon. But if you have somebody who can go downfield and just pluck a ball out of the air like that, you're in good shape.

They don't call him "Can Guard Mike", after all.
