Then, we break down Saturday’s fantastic spring game with our friend Shannon Sommers, who covers OSU athletics for Men of the Scarlet and Gray. Shannon was at Ohio Stadium last week and gave us his thoughts on the atmosphere. He also shared his thoughts on the offensive side of the ball, the game plan for a glorified practice, if you can even evaluate a defense in a game like this, and so much more.
We also talk about the 2015 season and the embarrasment of riches at Ohio State. We discuss where Ezekiel Elliott will end up in the Heisman race and if he can be Urban Meyer’s first 2,000 yard rusher.
And of course, we talk about the three-headed monster that is the quarterback position.
Shannon and I also share our thoughts on D’Angelo Russell declaring for the NBA draft and how that will affect Thad Matta’s squad next season.
Speaking of basketball, the Buckeyes have landed two verbal commitments over the last few weeks from the class of 2016. Late last week after the Spring Game, big man Micah Potter made his voice heard by committing to Ohio State.

ESPN’s Paul Biancardi has broke the story that D’Angelo Russell has declared from the NBA Draft.
In D’Angelo’s words:
“This was a hard decision because I knew I could come back and play with my teammates who I love and to be coached by Coach Thad Matta again would have been awesome, but at the same time I wanted to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA,” Russell told ESPN.com on Wednesday. “I know what I am capable of and the sky’s the limit with effort. I know I have a lot to work on.”
Russell also said that he will miss Columbus.
“It’s a great place, the fan base is crazy for basketball …hopefully it will open doors down the road after basketball,” he said. “The staff did a great job of challenging me from the X’s and O’s [standpoint], strengthening my body, and academically I got named as one of two players as a scholar-athlete on our team.”
