    • On Carnell Tate: “I think it’s just consistency. He doesn’t have too many missed assignments. He does everything right, catches the ball and get open. He does what you need him to time and time again. He’s consistent with it and has handled coming in to a new offense to a high level play with grace. He did it at a more efficient level than I did. Marvin and I, we did a pretty good job of taking accountability of learning the playbook, but Carnell has done it at such a high level and he’s so smart. Carnell is the first in the room to let you know if you had a drop that day, he talks a lot of trash and it gets us going. We have that element competitive going in that wide receiver room.”
    • On what’s better for him in 2023 compared to last season: “I’m healthier. There were a couple games last year you just had to power through. But this is football, so you’re never going to be 100 percent. But my body’s feeling good again and I’m just excited to play.”
    • On Ohio State’s quarterbacks: “They’re different quarterbacks and the more confidence that I have in them is going to come with experience. Nobody thought C.J. Stroud was C.J. Stroud his sophomore year, and I feel like it’s going to be a similar case now. Whatever people may be saying, we know what we have here in this building. We’re always going to have a great quarterback at Ohio State, there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. We’re excited to play and get more experience with whoever is named.
    • On if two quarterbacks playing in the same game would be distracting: “Football is going to be football regardless. We still have our assignments on plays and we’re expected to operate on a high level and execute at a high level. That’s the standard at Ohio State and the standard in the zone six wide receiver room. We feel confident with anyone behind center.”
    • On OSU’s ceiling for 2023: “At the end of the day, we’re just going to grind. We’re going to work as hard as we can and study our plays, treat every opponent with respect and come out with our hair on fire. At the end of the year we’ll look up and we’re gonna see where we’re at.”
    • On Bryson Rodgers: “Bryson, he’s one of the smaller dudes in the room which is OK, he’s a freshman. He’s young and will get that strength up and build more muscle mass, but he’s super quick and super shifty. We have this Michael Thomas board in the wide receiver room that tracks our targets, catches, drops, all that kinds of stuff. I think Bryson at the end of fall camp had a 90% completion rate when targeted. That’s the highest I’ve seen since I’ve been here. If that was a national stat, he’d be No. 1 in that category. Good things happen when the ball comes his way.”
    • On Brandon Inniss: “He came in the last of those four receivers and he’s picking up the offense extremely fast and is a joy to be around. He’s a great competitor and he and Carnell go back and forth a lot which is fun to be around. Brandon is a huge playmaker, he goes up and attacks the ball and he’s strong and confident. He just balls and tries his hardest, there’s never a half-hearted rep with him.”
