Ryan Day doesn't expect a starting QB decision to be made 'for at least a week'
It is officially time for football.
Teams across the country are reporting to camp ahead of the 2019 season regular season beginning and Ohio State begun its training camp on Friday. Following the team’s first practice, first-year head coach Ryan Day talked about numerous topics with the media.
One of those, of course, was in regard to who the starting QB would be.
According to Eleven Warriors, “Day said he has been impressed with how Gunnar Hoak has picked up the offense so far. Said the Buckeyes need to have three quarterbacks (Justin Fields, Hoak and Chris Chugunov) ready to play because anything can happen during the season, but doesn’t expect to be a decision on a starter for at least a week.”
So, for at least the next week, we won’t officially know who Ohio State’s starting QB for the fall will be.
However, it should be noted that former Georgia QB Justin Fields — who transferred to the Buckeyes over the offseason — was taking first-team reps. It is anticipated that Fields will win the starting job.
