The Ohio State Buckeyes have listed Jake Stoneburner at wide receiver on their official depth chart, according to Doug Lesmerises of The Plain Dealer. Coaches noted that Stoneburner will play around the field, though, moving into the slot and even the backfield at times.

Back in June, new Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer suspended Stoneburner indefinitely for off-field behavior, but he was expected to be a key part of Ohio State's offense in 2012. The 6'5, 245-pound senior was listed at tight end as a junior, but he's moving over to wideout this season to add a new layer to Meyer's pass attack.

Generally speaking, there's been optimism surrounding Stoneburner's 2012 season, even with the suspension. SB Nation gave Stoneburner an honorable mention as part of its 2012 Preseason All-America Team, and now he's officially on the receivers depth chart.
