Each Tuesday throughout the 2016 season, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will be participating in a Big Ten coaches’ conference call. Earlier this afternoon, Meyer talked about his skill position players, the kicking situation, J.T. Barrett and Malik Hooker.

Jeremy Birmingham of landof10.com broke down what Meyer said today:

“The Buckeyes head coach said his biggest question going into the Bowling Green game was offensive skill positions, but that the new names at wide receiver and tailback both did very well,” Birmingham said. “He said the offensive line remains among the biggest questions heading into Saturday.”

Offensive line play is extremely important, no matter what level of football is being played, but when your team scores 77 points, the line play couldn’t have been too terrible.

Birmingham then broke down what Meyer said of K.J. Hill at wide receiver and Malik Hooker, who recorded two interceptions against Bowling Green on Saturday:

“Meyer discussed WR K.J. Hill’s athleticism and development and suggested he ‘should’ve’ played in 2015,” Birmingham said. “He said that Hill’s biggest issue right now is consistency but that the Arkansas sophomore ‘works his tail off.’

“Malik Hooker came very close to leaving Ohio State as a freshman, Meyer reiterated. The New Castle (Pa.) safety was different than most other freshman who discuss leaving because his mother wouldn’t allow it. Young people need support and guidance in that instance. Hooker is ‘freakish,’ Meyer said, and was recruited because of how he performed on the basketball court.”

Regarding the kicker position, Meyer said Sean Nuernberger is “close to being healthy” and that he’ll have to beat out Tyler Durbin for the job.

Lastly, Birmingham talked about what Meyer said regarding Barrett:

“Meyer said that J.T. Barrett is doing a variety of things, including being a great leader and understanding ‘pressure points’ on offense and getting the Buckeyes into better situations,” Birmingham said. “He says Barrett is controlling and managing the game, making at least ’10 adjustments’ in the Bowling Green that helped the offense. He’s ‘very intelligent’ Meyer said.”
