The Ohio State football team is back in the Horseshoe this weekend to play the 2019 Spring Game.

The annual event wraps up spring practice, and gives fans a chance to watch the upcoming season’s team in person for the first time.

Friday afternoon, OSU released the rosters for this year’s game.

Players are divided up into a scarlet team and a gray team.

This year, the gray team is made up mostly of first-strong offensive players and second-string defensive players. The scarlet team is the opposite: the twos on offense and the ones on defense.

If you were hoping the rosters would provide some insight into the quarterback race, we have some bad news. Both Justin Fields and Matthew Baldwin will be playing with the gray.

Chris Chugunov and Danny Vanatsky will be quarterbacking the scarlet team.

A pair of highly-touted true freshmen will also be playing on the scarlet team. Wide receiver Garrett Wilson and defensive end Zach Harrison will both be on that sideline.

Star DE Chase Young will be in scarlet, while standout RB J.K. Dobbins is on the gray team. It remains to be seen just how much those players will actually see the field during the game.

The roster also lists which players will be sitting out due to injuries.

That list includes SAF Jordan Fuller, Ronnie Hickman, and Marcus Hooker, WR Jaylen Harris and Kamryn Babb, LB Tuf Borland, DT Robert Landers, CB Marcus Williamson, DE Tyler Friday, and OL Thayer Munford.

As always, some players will switch teams during the course of the game in order to help fill out rosters as needed.

The 2019 Spring Game kicks off Saturday at noon. You can find more information on tickets, TV, radio, and online streaming here.
