Ohio State redshirt freshman quarterback Devin Brown will miss Saturday’s spring game with an injury to a finger on his throwing hand. Brown had a procedure on that hand Wednesday, head coach Ryan Day said. Day is optimistic about the timeline of Brown’s return, however. Brown has been competing with junior Kyle McCord for the starting job under center, following the departure of two-time Heisman Trophy finalist C.J. Stroud for the NFL.
Day said he isn’t sure if Syracuse transfer safety Ja’Had Carter will be able to go for the spring game. Carter suffered an apparent right knee injury on Student Appreciation Day earlier this month.
Miyan Williams — who has missed some time this spring with an undisclosed injury that Day believes is nothing long term — will be available for the “thud drives” Saturday.

Ohio State is hot on the recruiting trail right now. The Buckeyes’ 2024 class is currently third in the country and, most notably, includes a pair of five-star wide receivers in Jeremiah Smith and Mylan Graham, not to mention On3’s No. 4 quarterback this cycle, Air Noland.
The Buckeyes have more commitments on the way, and the spring game is yet another opportunity to build out their already-impressive 2024 class.

Staff Predictions: Potential storylines, breakout players
The Lettermen Row crew of Spencer Holbrook, Tim May, Andy Backstrom and Matt Parker have been in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center the last two months watching Ohio State return to practice. With access to practices and press conferences, the team has gotten an early sense of what the 2023 Buckeyes are starting to look like.
With that in mind, they provided predictions for Saturday’s spring game. Instead of focusing on score picks — because spring game scores are largely irrelevant — each staffer provided a bold prediction and a breakout performer.
