Buckeyes open training camp for 2017 season


Buckeyes open training camp for 2017 season

  • Story Highlights
  • Ohio State will hold 19 practices in training camp.

The Ohio State Buckeyes ran out of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center at 6:30 a.m. Thursday, heading for the outdoor practice fields. A new season began as they all do: with stretching, light jogging and then a speech from coach Urban Meyer.

Here are a couple of observations from the first of 19 practices during training camp for Ohio State:

• Running back Mike Weber, tight end Marcus Baugh and defensive tackle Malik Barrow were held out of practice with minor injuries but worked out on the sideline in uniform.

• Miamisburg graduate Josh Myers, a freshman offensive lineman, worked out with the second unit. He enrolled at Ohio State in January.

• Wayne graduate Robert Landers opened his third season with the Buckeyes. He redshirted as a freshman and was a big contributor on the defense line a season ago.

• Several coaches and players will speak to the media after practice:
 defensive coordinator Greg Schiano; offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson; quarterback J.T. Barrett, offensive tackle Jamarco Jones; and defensive ends Jalyn Holmes and Sam Hubbard.
