Early Look at Ohio State’s Projected 2012 Depth Chart: Offense

By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A lot is bound to change between now and the start of fall camp in August.

A number of guys will shuffle around, some may leapfrog others during spring practice and some may not even be around by the time the Buckeyes hit the field against Miami University on Sept. 1.

That did not stop us from taking an early look at what Urban Meyer’s offense might look like based on the current personnel, as well as the incoming freshmen who will be expected to contribute for Ohio State this fall.
