    Mitchell Melton, who also suffered an injury this spring, did not appear to be on the field during the portion of practice that was open to the media.

    • On Mitchell Melton, Day says he's being cross-trained at linebacker and defensive end, "but we're gonna do the best we can to have as many of those hybrid guys."

    • Day says Mitchell Melton's pass-rushing ability has shown itself here in the first several practices.

    • Mitchell Melton continued to practice with the defensive ends as he has for all three windows of practice that have been open to the media.

    DE MITCHELL MELTON
    Expectations weren’t necessarily sky-high for Mitchell Melton entering the spring, given that the third-year linebacker missed all of 2021 with a torn ACL and didn’t get on the field a whole lot the year before that, either. But Melton has been a surprise standout over the past several weeks according to Knowles, who has showered the Maryland native with praise following his transition to the defensive line. Bigger than the average Buckeye linebacker but not quite the size of a defensive lineman, Melton seems to be an ideal fit for the Jack position, where he has shared plenty of reps with Sawyer this spring.

    Melton should see a considerable amount of playing time Saturday, should the Jack position be utilized as much as we expect, and it will be Melton’s first-ever spring game appearance at Ohio State.

    Jim Knowles said he hasn’t heard anything yet about Mitchell Melton’s health after his injury today.

    • On Mitchell Melton: "He's been cleared for individual drills, but we'll hold him to that for most of the spring if not all of the spring." Day says the Buckeyes need to be smart and "bring him back the right way."
