Post-Camp Depth Chart: Offense
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — It might sound hard to believe, but fall camp is already wrapping up at Ohio State and the 2011 season is just around the corner.

The Buckeyes had plenty of holes to fill this fall, but which players emerged during camp to fill those starting spots? We take a look at what Luke Fickell’s team should look like when they take the field against Akron next Saturday.

(Editor’s Note: For the purposes of this projected depth chart players who are under suspension have been dropped to the bottom of their positions.)

QUARTERBACK

Editor's Note: Luke Fickell has made it clear the Buckeyes plan to use two quarterbacks to start the season, and he named Bauserman and Miller as the two. Expect Bauserman to start the season-opener.)
                                                               
14 Joe Bauserman (6-1, 230, rSr.)
5 Braxton Miller (6-3, 210, Fr.)
13 Kenny Guiton (6-2, 195, rSo.)
19 Taylor Graham (6-4, 230, rFr.)

TAILBACK

(Editor’s note: Running backs coach Dick Tressel said that Jordan Hall is the most ready to do everything they need. He may start the opener at tailback, but he will also see time elsewhere.)

7 Jordan Hall (5-9, 195, Jr.)
34 Carlos Hyde (6-0, 238, rFr.) OR
+4 Jaamal Berry (5-10, 200, rSo.) ~ battled sore hamstring in camp
24 Rod Smith (6-3, 230, rFr.)
^1 Dan Herron (5-10, 205, rSr.)

FULLBACK

44 Zach Boren (6-0, 252, Jr.)

SPLIT END

9 Verlon Reed (6-0, 195, rFr.)
18 T.Y. Williams (6-5, 228, rFr.)
^8 DeVier Posey (6-2, 210, Sr.)

FLANKER

(Editor’s note: Both Devin Smith and Evan Spencer are in the receiver mix this fall. Right now it’s hard to tell which one will see the field first.)

10 Corey “Philly” Brown (5-11, 182, So.)
15 Devin Smith (6-3, 190, Fr.) OR
16 Evan Spencer (6-1, 190, Fr.)
