    If Ransom didn’t hit him CJ Hicks could have. That’s A LOT of talent out there!

    • Eliano has been pleased with Lathan Ransom's development on and off the field this offseason, as the safeties coach believes he's seen Ransom step into a leadership role in the early months of 2023. "He's an even better leader today than he was last year."

    • Day expects it to be a “very competitive” camp at safety with Lathan Ransom being the only incumbent.

    • Eliano said Lathan Ransom has “really taken a leadership role” and “had a phenomenal summer.”
    • Asked if there had been any conversations about taking Ransom off of special teams units to limit injury risk, Eliano responded “Here at Ohio State, our best players play on special teams, period.”

    • Ransom said this is “the healthiest” he’s been since he’s played at Ohio State.
    • On playing in Knowles’ system for the second year: “Our defense is playing really confident. Firing out to the ball and making a lot of plays. It’s exciting to watch and great to be a part of.”
    • Ransom said last season he learned the importance of putting on enough size to endure the whole season: “I’m in there against linemen, tight ends and running backs. I think it took maturity of my diet and lifting to understand it’s good to feel Game 1 or Game 2, but how are you going to feel Game 8? Those are the real big games of the season. Coach Mick got me right this year and I bought in to my nutrition. I feel great.”
