Ohio State helmet Syndication: The Columbus Dispatch

The Ohio State Buckeyes will need a new starting quarterback this upcoming season after the departure of Kyle McCord, who ultimately transferred to Syracuse following the 2023 season. But after spring practices, it doesn’t sound like head coach Ryan Day is ready to name his next starter quite yet.

Following Ohio State’s spring game on Saturday, Ryan Day decided that he was not ready to declare a starting quarterback.

“I wouldn’t say that I’m going to make any declarations right now. But we’ll look at the film and see what it looks like and then decide where to go from there,” Day said. “But I don’t have much to say about it right now.”

Ohio State has three quarterbacks with real in-game experience between Devin Brown, Kansas State transfer Will Howard, and Lincoln Keinholz. The Buckeyes also added two five-star freshmen to the mix this spring with Air Noland signing out of high school and Julian Saying transferring from Alabama following the sudden departure of Nick Saban.

All five of those quarterbacks played in Saturday’s spring game, and all were impressive to varying degrees. However, the battle seems to be primarily between Brown and Howard at the top of the depth chart. We’ll have to see who emerges as the starter.
