Through spring and fall, Jordan Fuller was Ohio State's one clear-cut starter at safety with a few other players vying for the other starting spot, but Fuller did not get the start in the opener, missing the game due to a hamstring injury.

In his place, Buckeye safeties Jahsen Wint and Isaiah Pryor got the start and the first-team reps during warm-ups

Wint and Pryor were listed as co-starters opposite of Fuller on the team's debut depth chart and will get plenty of reps in the opener as both continue to earn the first-team field safety spot.
