This Week in Twitter is a look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from Buckeyeland and beyond.

Pete Carroll liking what hes seeing from his 2 first-round picks. On JSN, Pete said: Great change of direction in him. Hes got marvelous ability to get in and out of his turns. And his hands are just as natural as can be. https://t.co/lSz2uDXFyE pic.twitter.com/lsQpxmzqhO

I was definitely impressed with Taylor Mikesell tonight. She's definitely a sharpshooter. Hopefully, Coach Wright will use her more often moving forward. I was also happy to see LA getting more playing time tonight as well.— Cathy Turner (@CathyTurner21) June 10, 2023
Last but not least, Brian Hartline and Marvin Harrison Jr. had a fantastic conversation about all things Scarlet and Gray.
