    • Walton said Ohio State will “see how it goes” with Lorenzo Styles Jr. switching to cornerback, but that “so far he’s been impressed with him. He’s a mature guy that works hard and has a good head on his shoulders with good size and speed.”

    • Lorenzo Styles Jr. worked mostly with the third-team defense in his first practice as a Buckeye cornerback.

    • Styles feels he’s already settling into his new position, in part thanks to the efforts of the defensive line, who he said is making his job easier. “I’m performing at a high level right now.”
    • Special teams are another area where Styles feels he can make contributions early while he works his way to a defensive role. “I’ve shown I can be a great gunner (at Notre Dame). I’ve done some kickoff return there.”
    • “This is a really talented group. We have a lot of leadership in this room. I really think we can be one of the best rooms in the country.”
    • Styles feels the transition to Ohio State from Notre Dame is made easier by the fact that the Fighting Irish play in plenty of big games every season, just as the Buckeyes do. He’ll have been in high-pressure situations before.
    • The toughest part of his new position one week in, Styles said, is learning the techniques required. “I’ve just been using a lot of my athleticism and that’s taken me a long way.”
    • Denzel Burke and Jordan Hancock have been advising Styles the most. He said the duo have helped him embrace the “next-play mindset” of being a cornerback.
    • Coach Tim Walton’s ability to understand the defense as a whole and then apply it to his cornerbacks is something that stood out to Styles when he was picking his next destination in the transfer portal.
