  Draft Scout by Conference

  02/20/23 - QB Kyle McCordJr/2025, Ohio State

  Ryan Day has never been in a hurry to name a starting quarterback at Ohio State. Both of the previous announcements during his coaching tenure, in 2021 and 2019, came in late August, exactly 12 days before the Buckeyes were to open their seasons. As the high-profile position battles lasted beyond spring practice, they continued for months of the offseason with little divulged about the pecking order among the passers, even as C.J. Stroud and Justin Fields were viewed as the favorites. But the coming competition between junior Kyle McCord and redshirt freshman Devin Brown to replace Stroud, who left for the NFL last month, could be on a faster timeline.

Day said he hopes one of them emerges in the weeks ahead and earns the right to be named the starter following spring practice. "The way that our dynamic is, it'd be great for our program to be able to do that," Day said. "There were times in the past when I didn't see that happening. I'm hoping that can happen. If it doesn't, it doesn't, but some vision on who the starter is coming out of spring would be nice." That apparent openness to picking a starting quarterback sooner rather than later only adds to the stakes of the 15 spring practices beginning on March 7. Will McCord or Brown position himself to win the job? - Columbus Dispatch
