The Ohio State Buckeyes signed former Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Will Howard this offseason to compete for the team’s starting quarterback role this offseason. Howard played his first snaps in Ohio Stadium on Saturday as part of the team’s annual spring game, and it sounds like head coach Ryan Day was impressed by some of the things he saw.

“I think that over the spring, the timing is increasing, it’s getting better over and over again. I think the more reps that all these guys get the better,” Day said after the game according to Eleven Warriors. “He had some nice completions in there. And I think there was a sack in there, maybe he held onto it a little too long. And wind was going pretty hard today, so I think we underthrew a couple balls. But overall, I thought he had at least had a good comfort level for the first drive in the Shoe.”

Howard is competing with Devin Brown and a few others for the starting quarterback role this offseason. But Day was not willing to name a starter following Saturday’s spring game.

“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.”

We’ll have to see who ultimately earns the job.
