    • Bailey said Bennett Christian is “not a young guy anymore, and that’s what I’ve reminded him.” He said he’s challenged Christian to be more of a leader and has noticed his mindset has changed in regards to understanding the offense across the board.

    • On how he handled his suspension last year: “Obviously, it was challenging mentally and physically, but I made the best out of it. Put my head down, went to work every day. I prayed all the time and I really grew in my faith with my parents. And I grew from it. It’s a lesson learned, for sure.”
    • Christian said he learned he had tested positive for a banned substance last winter before spring practice started. He said there was no appeal process. He said the substance was something he bought at a nutrition store, and the lesson he learned was to make sure he checks with Ohio State’s training staff before taking any supplements.
    • “I was devastated. It really caught me off-guard. It was a rough time, but I moved past it and decided I had three choices: Either I could tuck my tail and run away; hide from it, not acknowledge it; or grow from it and learn from it and make myself better, and that’s what I did.”
    • He said he spent last year on the scout team. That meant practicing against Jack Sawyer and JT Tuimoloau, so he doesn’t feel as though the suspension set him back in his development.
    • What can his role be this season? “Whatever they need me to be. I’m an unselfish player. I can provide a lot in the blocking game and the passing game.”
    • On Will Kacmarek: “He’s a great guy. He fits in perfectly with all the guys.” Christian said they look similar to each other so he sometimes confuses Kacmarek for himself when watching film.
    • Christian played primarily in a gap blocking scheme in high school, so he said it’s been a transition learning how to play in a zone blocking scheme over the past two years.
    • On Ohio State’s spring game being on FOX: “It just shows what we have going on at Ohio State. We’re fortunate enough to have a game on a national program. I think it just shows the power of the program.”
