The Buckeyes’ backup quarterback says you’ll see him on the field soon.
Ohio State isn’t making a change at quarterback.
Urban Meyer has repeatedly said that J.T. Barrett is the Buckeyes’ guy “without question.”
Getting the guys behind Barrett some reps is something Meyer wants to happen, though.
“We’d like to, absolutely, put the other guys in,” Meyer said at his Monday presser. “That opportunity has not presented. Third quarter of Oklahoma is not the right time to do that.”
Ohio State redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins said on Twitter today that he’ll be on the field “soon.”
So when is my boy @dh_simba7 gone play

Meyer talked specifically about Haskins at his press conference.
“The term ‘game ready’ is used quite often around here. That is Dwayne being ready to help us go win a game. And if we feel he is, then he’ll go in the game,” Meyer said. “We’re hoping he continues to grow up and get some game experience, and evaluate it there.”
Haskins, a four-star recruit in the 2016 class, is the most pro-style quarterback on Ohio State’s roster.
Behind him on the depth chart are Joe Burrow and true freshman Tate Martell.
