Count C.J. Stroud among those that are impressed with what Jim Knowles has brought to Ohio State so far in spring practice. The Buckeyes' signal caller said OSU's defense has thrown different looks at him in team drills.  

“They do a lot of different things,” Stroud said of going against OSU's defense in practice. “They have different ways to get to different coverages, which is really good for my eyes to see. Not just seeing Cover 1, Cover 3 or just base coverage every day. I really appreciate coach Knowles bringing that swagger to the defense, it's really going to help our offense.”

Hear from Stroud, Kyle McCord, Devin Brown, Steele Chambers and other Ohio State linebackers as the team's quarterbacks and linebackers met with reporters Wednesday.
