Buckeyes are practicing outdoors right now (11-1). I'll post observations late this afternoon when I get back.
Looking forward to it! :)
This too shall pass...
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
We want "sights and sounds" video please......
Per BCast, long runs of 40+ for Dunn and Ball.

Highlight of OSU's Student Appreciation practice so far: Brutus taking a snap at QB, running upfield and getting planted by LB David Perkins
I'm starting to think Ball might get some PT this year. If he keeps playing the way he is, he will move up the depth chart.
Devin Smith, catch of the day. 45 yard range one handed catch. Smith has all the tools, and we saw lots of glimpses of that type of catch, and his open field speed as well last year. If Smith goes all out 100% every play, and the reviews and 2012 snippets of yearly improvements on Philly Brown, Spencer and Thomas continue, plus Marshall, Smith, Wilson and Clark coming in, this WR corp is going to be a huge huge upgrade, with both raw numbers, speed, athleticism and various skill sets.
You can throw in Jordan Hall in the slot as well.
Love it, Spence has been going HAM all spring, hope it translate to a monster season in the fall

Mike Thomas with a nice TD catch, even with Eli Apple getting flagged for PI. Mike Thomas is another one who is really starting to show up. Last year was a growing year for him, this year he's ready. He and Ball are making moves.
Thanks so much for the updates and please keep them coming!!! The students must be going (buck)Nuts!!!
Cool. Looking forward to it. Thanks for the great coverage.
Several reports, Warren Ball has had more long runs than the other RB's, man RB is loaded.
Hyde is set for a big senior year, glowing reports on Rod Smith, and Dunn, Ball, Elliott and even a Jalin Marsall at times (RB looks in certain formations and wildcat) is loaded.
PS, that Braxton Miller kid can run as well.
Reports also that Curtis Grant was very active, in the back field a lot and had a sack, great great news if his light is coming on with his skill set and body.
Also, multiple sacks for Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington. Sacks for Bennett and true frosh Sprinkle as well.
Never worried about Sprinkle's non ranking not being high by these recruitnets, who like kids that camp and play recruiting games, and that is how many and most get ranked high. Sprinkle had offers from Penn State, Michigan State (Larry Johnson at PSU and Dantonio at MSU, great D talent evauators), Arkansas, Pitt, Louisville and others schools when OSU offered and got him. Ohio D1 D player of the year. He is a year behind his real class, and could easily get to the 6'5" 275 type range and be another stud SSDE with Washington and Bosa, and Dylan Thompson on the way.
Maybe the best news I have seen, Curtis Grant today. Washington and Spence being sacked artist, that was bound to come out. Sprinkle doing that already as an early enrollee, more great DL depth.
O83, thanks for the great information...quick question, whom were those sacks against? First or second team OL?
Also, any word on which if any wideouts looked good? Keeping my fingers crossed for Smith to be consistent and how did Thomas look? Thanks so much.
I've always liked warren ball since tressell camp when they referred to him as sweetness. Not a bad comparison.
