The spring game on Saturday at Ohio Stadium will be the lone opportunity for Ohio State football fans to watch one of the potential successors for C.J. Stroud.

Devin Brown will miss the game while recovering from surgery on his throwing hand, according to head coach Ryan Day, though the redshirt freshman shouldn’t be gone for too long.

It’s more of a setback than anything else because he will miss a few practices here and resume training immediately away, according to Day.

Brown and Kyle McCord were vying to start at quarterback for the Buckeyes in the spring.

McCord, who served as the primary backup last season, may have had an advantage over the competition due to his experience, but Brown’s ability to make plays with his legs in the latter part of the previous season and throughout the offseason garnered some excitement.

Now though Brown has wait until August to apply for Stroud’s old position once more, Day predicted that Brown would still be able to complete the majority of the tasks he would have completed this summer. The quarterback competition would have continued into the preseason, according to the coach.

Day remarked, “I believe they’ve both done incredibly fantastic things. “I believe they both need to work on some aspects. They would probably tell you the same thing if they were right here, in my opinion.

“This place is free of games and agendas. Two men are engaged in competition; one man may prevail one day while the other man may do so the following. The representatives have been distributed equally. You folks have experienced it firsthand. We have been very careful to make sure we do that. They are aware of the things they need to improve. There are certain things they did well.

Day stated that he would want for someone to come forward and take the role this month before spring practice started.

The coach mentioned that the preseason will have twice as many workouts as the spring, with its conclusion just a few days away.

This must be Practice 13, then. That still doesn’t amount to many practices. You get twice that in the preseason, so we’ll continue to develop and progress.

We’ll look at the statistics, such as who received a champion grade and completion %, following the spring, in my opinion.

These figures will include the spring game, in which McCord will play with Tristan Gebbia, a transfer from Oregon State, and walk-ons Chad Ray and Mason Maggs.

In his four years at Corvallis, Gebbia participated in 12 collegiate games, but he was primarily added as a backup arm rather than a third candidate for the starting position.

When his playing career is over, he plans to become a coach, and he is using his time at Ohio State as a warm-up for that.

Day remarked, “I’ve been impressed with his attitude. “It’s obvious that he’s participated in games. The ball is released quickly, and judgments are made quickly. And he is approaching it with maturity.

“However, for Kyle and Tristan, Saturday is a perfect opportunity to put it in action because, at the end, you can say that it’s the same or it’s not. Simply put, rehearsing in front of a small group here is not the same as practicing in front of a large crowd.SAT. NIGHT’S GAME
