Entering just his fourth game as a Buckeye, Zach Harrison is listed as a co-starter on Ohio State's depth chart.

With Jonathon Cooper and Tyreke Smith both unavailable to play due to injuries, the true freshman is listed as a co-starter along with Tyler Friday at the defensive end spot opposite Chase Young for Ohio State's game against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Ohio Stadium.

Friday previously started for the Buckeyes in their second game of the season against Cincinnati. Smith took his place in the starting lineup last week, but Friday ended up playing the second-most snaps (33) among Ohio State defensive ends at Indiana after Smith left early with his injury, and he recorded three total tackles with two tackles for loss and a sack against the Hoosiers.

Harrison also recorded a sack against Indiana – the first of his career – among two total tackles and played 22 snaps against the Hoosiers.

With nose tackle Robert Landers also unavailable for this week's game, Tommy Togiai moves up to the second row of the nose tackle depth chart behind starter Davon Hamilton. Antwuan Jackson is listed as the third-team nose tackle behind them, while Jerron Cage joins the depth chart as the third-team 3-technique behind Jashon Cornell and Haskell Garrett.

Jahsen Wint is back on the depth chart as the backup bullet after missing last week's game due to an undisclosed injury, while Justin Hilliard is now listed as Pete Werner's backup at Sam linebacker.

Cameron Brown, who is considered to be a game-time decision for Saturday's game, is still listed as the primary backup to Damon Arnette at cornerback. 

The rest of the depth chart remains unchanged from previous weeks, with Gunnar Hoak and Chris Chugunov still listed as co-backups at quarterback and Tuf Borland and Baron Browning still listed as co-starters at middle linebacker.
