Ohio State Buckeyes helmet Syndication: The Columbus Dispatch

The Ohio State Buckeyes are in need of a new starting quarterback this offseason and they have a lot of options with five scholarship quarterbacks currently on the roster. In the era of the transfer portal, that sets up a pretty difficult situation for the team.

With the spring transfer portal window opening, some of the quarterbacks may choose to pursue other opportunities depending on where they stand at Ohio State. But it sounds like Ohio State is keeping that in mind as they evaluate the quarterbacks and is trying to give them as much honest feedback as they can.

“We’ll give them our assessment,” Ohio State offensive coordinator Chip Kelly said according to Eleven Warriors. “But we do it after every day. They know where they stood after practice one, after two, after three, after four. We grade everything. They’re getting constant feedback in terms of where we are. And then after 15, which we had today. But we can’t do it unless you watch the film.”

With five talented quarterbacks on the roster, it’s hard to get a lot of practice reps for each of them. It’s not easy, but Kelly said that Ohio State is making it work.

“We got a lot of guys there. That part’s tough, I think, because there’s guys that deserve reps and they’re all competing for it,” Kelly said. “But they capitalized on them, we really rolled them … and as we talk about all the time, the old adage is ‘Don’t count your reps, make your reps count.’ And we’ll put it all together and really come up with, which guy do we really feel is gonna help us move this offense?”

We’ll have to see how the battle shakes out and if any players decide to transfer.
