    • Tshabola was excited to shed his black stripe at practice this week. “It was big. It was a long time coming, some things happened last year, but it’s a good feeling to have it off.”
    • Tshabola said Ohio State’s offensive line room has been putting in extra work before and after practice this spring. He said Donovan Jackson and Matt Jones have been leaders in that time as returning starters with the most experience.
    • Tshabola said he has tried to be more “calm” on the field this offseason, something Paris Johnson Jr. taught him as Johnson has prepared for the NFL draft in January, February and March. His initial desire as a freshman was to always be physical, but Johnson helped him learn that there is a time to be calm and a time to be violent as an offensive lineman.
    • Tshabola said he “always” talks to Ohio State’s defensive linemen after plays and asks them how he can improve his play. He wants to know how the defensive linemen attack him and look to beat him so he can work to develop those areas.

    • Tshabola says he’s jumping around between playing left and right tackle and is trying to “get better every day.” He said the positions are a lot alike and you have to find your spot, shoot your hands and do what you need to do to get the job done. He added the hardest part of switching positions is when you overthink it.
    • Tshabola said his role isn’t 100 percent set for the 2023 season but he intends to help Ohio State in as many different ways as he can. “Anywhere I feel like I’m needed, I want to be a guy that can step in and make a switch wherever I’m needed.”
    • Tshabola said he’s “competing like I’ve never competed before” in practice. He said he’s focusing on getting better every day he can and set a goal of being the best tackle in the Big Ten one day.
    • He said he feels good about the amount of work he’s put in so far, but is always looking for a way to improve.
