While it’s still early in the spring, we will see if Fitzpatrick is able to carve out some playing time with the Buckeyes in 2023. Ohio State’s offense is replacing some key pieces on the offensive line with Dawand Jones and Paris Johnson Jr. off to the NFL, so a number of spots are up for grabs in the offseason.
