By Jim Baird | AM Football Briefing | Wednesday, August 31 – 6:15 AM
DEPTH CHART RELEASED: Ohio State released it’s depth chart heading into week 1. Read it here. What stood out? First, ‘OR’ is used pretty frequently, indicating the coaching staff is playing it coy and/or will rotate heavily in some positions. In one of the summer’s most heated battles, Marshon Lattimore appears on track to start at corner after making it through camp healthy, notes Bill Landis. Ohio State likes their options at corner, Tim May writes.
“ZERO INDICATION” GIBSON WILL LEAVE: A day after the university announced the fall suspension of wide receiver Torrance Gibson, it appears he’ll stay at OSU. Meyer: “I have zero indication that he wants to leave.” Eric Seger with more.
