Urban Meyer spoke to reporters today after the team’s third practice of fall camp, which was the Buckeyes first day in pads.
Find out what he thinks of Braxton Miller’s progress, which freshman Meyer believes has really flashed, and what the Ohio State coach is still concerned about at this point.
Other notable developments today:
- Meyer points out that center Corey Linsley is not full-speed, but he isn’t worried about that. “He’ll be fine,” he said.
- Despite his three-game suspension, Carlos Hyde is working out with the team. Meyer says he’s still waiting for the facts to come regarding the misdemeanor battery charge against Bradley Roby. Roby is practicing as well.
- Despite Meyer saying that the entire team would be taught proper tackling technique due to the new targeting rules, Jack Mewhort told me those lessons have yet to extend to the offensive lineman. He was very, very excited about the idea, however.
- As was noted in the spring, guard Marcus Hall has been slimming down, and he feels that has helped him to move better in the field.
- Taylor Decker was actually asked if he’s worried there’s a chance he’ll be the weak link of the line. He admitted that possibility has really motivated him. If he should ever find motivation lacking, seniors Hall, Linsley, Mewhort and Andrew Norwell will be happy to provide. They’ve been breaking in the right tackle with some playful razing.
