    • Simmons said “toward the back end” of last season he “started to figure it out a little bit” at the left tackle position. Simmons believes he had his best performances in Ohio State’s final four or five games.
    • On the challenge of playing for San Diego State and then Ohio State: “People love Ohio State. This is the best program in the country. ... I took it as (a challenge). I was like, 'Josh, you gotta lock in and figure it out.' That's what I would do throughout the season. I realized that these are brothers and these aren't teammates. I started to dial in. I started to hone in on my craft.”
    • Simmons said he took steps in his mental approach toward the game last season. After starting the year off with a lot of penalties, he shored up toward the middle and end of the season. “Those Notre Dame games and those Penn State games, you realize that (penalties) can destroy the whole game. Once you kind of look at it through that lens, you realize that's a no-no. They can't happen.”
    • On his performance last season: “I don't try to look back, but I try to look forward and keep climbing up the ladder. I looked at some tape from the past and from the near past, and it gives me the sense that I'm going in the right direction.”
    • Simmons said he is thankful to have spring practice with his teammates this year. He said chemistry is an important piece to playing offensive line, and now he has that with Donovan Jackson, who will start for the Buckeyes at left guard again this season.
