Buckeye Linebackers Will Set Depth Chart In Fall Camp
The Buckeyes are returning two starting linebackers from last season, having lost just Malik Harrison from a year ago. Starters Pete Werner and Tuf Borland return, as do five other upperclassmen with experience. Seniors Baron Browning and Justin Hilliard have as much experience as regular starters, and juniors K’Vaughan Pope, Teradja Mitchell, and Dallas Gant have all seen plenty…
Making Sense of the Ohio State Linebacker Situation (Or Trying To)
One of the first questions I wanted an answer for when walking into Monday’s open Ohio State football practice was whether or not seniors Baron Browning and Tuf Borland were still tied together at middle linebacker. However, Browning was still rehabbing from a minor injury, so he was not practicing. This meant that my main question would have to wait to be answered…

How Will Ohio State Replace… LB Malik Harrison
Malik Harrison was one of those Central Ohio prospects who had to wait until after his senior season to receive an Ohio State offer.

Biggest Movers So Far This Spring — Ohio State Defense
Every year, new Buckeyes emerge and climb the depth charts of the Ohio State offense and defense. It is a necessary progression which then allows the program to replace departed stars and reestablish any loss of depth. This year on the OSU defense, nine starters return from last season, which makes climbing the depth chart quite a…
Buckeyes Excited About Simpler, Faster, Straight Ahead Defense
There was a telling moment during an interview session with Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson last week. He was asked about the oft-discussed simplification of the OSU offense and he remarked that “you can never be simplified enough.” This thought flies in the face of what the Buckeyes did the last two years on defense, with…
Morning Constitutional: Which Young Buckeyes Have Flashed This Spring Per Ryan Day?
It’s a question as old as time (early on during a football camp) — how are the young guys looking? Everybody wants to know about the young guys because we all think we already know about the older guys. We want new news. We’re not the only ones, however, because coaches love it when there are young guys to talk about, even if…
