Football
Projected Fall Depth Chart: Special Teams
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Already this weekend we have previewed Ohio State’s potential offensive and defensive depth chart, but there are three phases to every football game.

Running backs coach Dick Tressel, older brother of Jim, has just been appointed the team’s new specials teams coordinator, but what will he have to work with?

The bad news is the Buckeyes must replace place kicker Devin Barclay, who made 20 of his 24 field goal attempts last season. The good news is they return a strong-legged kicker in Drew Basil along with punter Ben Buchanan, who averaged 41 yards per punt last season.
