COVID-19 may have ruined spring practice, but it ain't stopping Ohio State's quarterbacks from getting better.

Though they've been forced away from campus since March, Justin Fields and Jack Miller have each been seen on social media working out with their respective local quarterback trainers.

Last week, Fields was featured in an Instagram post showing his workouts with Atlanta-area quarterback trainer Quincy Avery, who's worked with Fields since his high school days and has also worked with former Buckeye quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the past.

Fields' workouts were also alongside former Ohio State quarterback commit Emory Jones.

Fields hasn't just been working out with Avery, he's also spent time with Ron Veal, a private quarterbacks coach he's worked with since middle school, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

While Fields is putting in work in Georgia, his potential backup is working out in his own home state across the country with Mike Giovando, a private quarterbacks coach based out of Arizona.

With players spread out across the country, Ohio State's coaching staff has had to rely on the players taking their own initiative. Ryan Day has expressed trust in his team, and this is a prime example of why.

“If we have to check on you anyways or if you say you’re doing something and you’re really not, then we’re not much of a team,” Day said. “So we have the guidelines and sent them out. We’ve talked to them about the different things that are there on a daily basis. Certainly they could not do it, but we have an awful team if that’s the case.”
