The Big Ten Network crew continued its tour throughout the conference, checking out training camps. BTN. analyst Joshua Perry shared his top three takeaways at stop No. 7, Ohio State.

The first note was regarding the run game of an offense that has to replace two starters at the interior offensive line from last year. Perry addressed the biggest concerns on offense and the rushing game despite returning running back TreVeyon Henderson.

“This offense is really good, this offense has a chance to be one of the top in America, but the question is will they will be able to run the football,” Perry said. “I thought they were very physical up front, they’ve got really good running back, but it’s about building that consistency where they can run the ball when they need it.”

The second takeaway from Perry was the potential breakout of two young edge rushers for Ohio State this season.

“A lot of questions have been about the defense, this is a new defense, it’s very aggressive, a lot of rotation around the safeties, a lot of blitzes and a lot of chaos because that’s the way that they liked it but the question that a lot of people have asked is what about the pass rushers and I’ll give you two numbers out here No. 44 (JT Tuimoloau) and 33 (Jack Sawyer), those guys are going to be really good players their second year into the program, but they’ve got a ton of upside.”

Perry’s last point went into the overall perspective of the tempo and the team’s mentality in practice.

“Finally, there is a different edge out here for Ohio State and the practice felt different than what I saw a year ago. I know that was a point of emphasis in the off-season. So they have to carry that edge throughout the season, as it’s going to be a quick start against Notre Dame.”
