High school career
Playing at Blackman High School, Teague committed to Ohio State on June 11, 2017 when he released a video on Twitter. Teague chose the Buckeyes over South Carolina, Georgia and Auburn, among others. Coming out of high school Teague was a four-star prospect by 247Sports.com and Rivals.com. He was rated as the No. 8 running back by Rivals and No. 11 by 247Sports.
Teague enrolled at Ohio State University in January 2018, so that he could participate in Spring practice. Teague was behind J. K. Dobbins and Mike Weber in the depth chart. Though he was deep in the running back rotation, he did see the field in four games where he totaled 106 yards on 17 carries, and scoring on one 33-yard touchdown run against Oregon State.
Following a change in NCAA rules, Teague was able to earn a Redshirt for his true-Freshman year. Going into 2019, Teague would battle for the back-up spot on the Buckeye roster behind Dobbins. He quickly earned the role and averaged 11 carries and 69 yards per game and also scoring three touchdowns through the first half of the season.
Through 2020, Teague's statistics are as follows:
