In this very special Friday edition of Accost the Field, we discuss the Ohio State quarterback situation heading into spring football and beyond. This is the third position-specific episode so far, as we have already handled the receivers and the linebackers. With the departure of J.T. Barrett, where will the Buckeyes turn? We break the four quarterback possibilities down and everything else going on with the position.
