While this year's National Signing Day looks as though it will be a fairly quiet day for Ohio State on the recruiting front, with only a couple offensive linemen still in the mix as potential signees, it will be an opportunity for the media to meet with the newest members of the Buckeyes' roster and coaching staff.
The early enrollees of Ohio State's 2019 recruiting class are scheduled to meet with the media between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The Buckeyes have six early enrollees this year: running back Marcus Crowley, wide receiver Garrett Wilson, offensive lineman Ryan Jacoby, defensive ends Zach Harrison and Noah Potter and safety Ronnie "Rocket" Hickman.
New quarterback Justin Fields is also expected to meet with the media during that timeframe, though an Ohio State spokesperson said he will not be answering questions about his appeal to the NCAA for immediate eligibility since that remains unresolved.
Ohio State's five new assistant coaches – quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator Mike Yurcich, co-defensive coordinator Greg Mattison, co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach Jeff Hafley, special teams coordinator and assistant secondary coach Matt Barnes and linebackers coach Al Washington – are set to meet with the media between 11 a.m. and noon Wednesday.
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day and several assistant coaches will appear on The Ryan Day Radio Show from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on 97.1 The Fan, while Day will also meet with local media between 1-1:30 p.m.
