Urban Meyer names Dwayne Haskins Ohio State's starting QB, shares plan for Tate Martell
It’s no secret that the Ohio State Buckeyes want to see what they have in QB Dwayne Haskins during the buildup to the 2018 season.
In fact, coach Urban Meyer has gone as far as to name Haskins the starter at this still fairly early point in the offseason.
On Friday, Meyer confirmed that Haskins is the starter, but went on to add that sophomore Tate Martell will also figure into the mix when summer practices begin (via ESPN.com):
Speaking with reporters before the Ohio State Football Job Fair in Columbus, Meyer named Haskins the starter but said sophomore Tate Martell will compete for the top job when practices resume later this summer.
Haskins completed 40 of his 57 pass attempts in relief of starter J.T. Barrett last year, throwing for 565 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
The sky is the limit for the talented passer, and it’ll be fun to see if he can hold off Martell and have a strong 2018 season.
