Devin Smith Catch: Ohio State Receiver's One-Handed Touchdown Grab (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The first touchdown of the Urban Meyer era at Ohio State might be replayed throughout the rest of the season.

With just over a minute into the second quarter of the Buckeyes' season opener against Miami (Ohio), quarterback Braxton Miller threw a deep pass to receiver Devin Smith in the back of the end zone from 23 yards out. The sophomore wideout had some separation from the defender, leaped up and reached back to make an amazing one-handed touchdown catch.

Smith then acted as if it was routine when got back to his feet, casually tossed the ball and celebrated with his teammates.

The announcer immediately dubbed it the "catch of the year" even though it's the first Saturday of the season, and he wasn't the only one. Several who witnessed the touchdown, including Ohio State fan and NBA MVP LeBron James, took to Twitter and agreed with the announcer.

Do you think Smith's catch will be catch of the year?
