All that remains for Ohio State this spring is Saturday's spring game.

The Buckeyes' final pre-spring game practice was open for media viewing on Friday, and while Jeremiah Smith continued making waves, Will Howard and the rest of Ohio State's quarterbacks had a middling day.

The offensive line remains in ongoing competition alongside the quarterbacks entering Saturday, with Luke Montgomery, Tegra Tshabola, Carson Hinzman and Seth McLaughlin all battling at the right guard and center spots. All four will try to make a push before a friendly crowd in the Shoe.

Also trying to make a push are linebackers C.J. Hicks and Sonny Styles, competing with each other to start at Will linebacker. Hicks has flashed throughout the spring but will need to show in the spring game that he can be reliable on a down-to-down basis, while Styles continues acclimating at the position after moving over from safety.

Eleven Warriors' Andy Anders, Chase Brown and Dan Hope discussed these topics and made predictions for what to expect in the spring game in a pre-spring episode of Press Coverage, which you can view in the video player at the top of the page.
