Re-Thinking Ohio State’s Offensive Depth Chart Before Spring Game

By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — After a few offseasons of flux on the offensive side of the ball, the Buckeyes will look quite familiar when they take the field this fall. Braxton Miller is heading into his third year in the program, while guys like Carlos Hyde, Jack Mewhort, Corey Brown and Jordan Hall return for their final go-around.

Here’s a closer look at where the depth chart stands heading into Saturday’s Scarlet and Gray Spring Game at Paul Brown Stadium down in Cincinnati. Both Braxton Miller and Kenny Guiton will be in ‘no contact’ black jerseys, but freshman Cardale Jones should be live.
