There’s no denying the quarterback battle at Ohio State has drawn plenty of attention heading into the fall.

The Buckeyes are entering fall camp under new head coach Ryan Day. Ohio State will also have a new starting quarterback for 2019 as Dwayne Haskins is now in the NFL.

While it is expected that incoming transfer Justin Fields will win the starting job for Week 1, it sounds like that still has yet to be decided. Fields spoke with the media following Sunday’s practice, and he said nothing was promised to him before transferring to Ohio State:

“Coach Day told me before I came here, this wasn’t going to be given to me,” said Fields, “so I definitely think we’re all trying to get that starting spot.”

When asked how he is approaching the competition, Fields explained that he is not approaching the competition with a “battle” mindset. Instead, his focus is on the offense getting better every day:

“I don’t try to think about it as a battle,” Fields explained. “I’m not thinking ‘I have to be better than this guy.’ I’m just focusing on us as an offense and trying to get better each and every day.”
