    DAVISON IGBINOSUN
    The buzz around Ole Miss transfer Davison Igbinosun continues to build this spring. The 6-foot-2 cornerback took mostly second-team reps in Ohio State’s first scrimmage, but looked just as impressive while running with the ones for stretches on Saturday.

    During 7-on-7 drills, Igbinosun made the only interception of the day for the Buckeye defense, picking off a Kyle McCord pass at the right hash mark over the middle of the field. Later on, Igbinosun broke up a downfield pass in tight one-on-one coverage on Tate against McCord and the first-team Ohio State offense during 11-on-11.

    Igbinosun didn’t steal the show completely, as Denzel Burke, Jordan Hancock and Jyaire Brown all had PBUs of their own during the hour-and-a-half practice, and Brown also took some first-team reps along with Burke and Hancock. But considering the glowing reviews he’s gotten from the Buckeye coaching staff this spring, Saturday’s performance only bolstered Igbinosun's momentum early in his Ohio State tenure.

    • Walton says Igbinosun was a competitor from the beginning but that he’s more comfortable now than he was during the spring. “He’s having an understanding of where to be, alignments, splits and formations. Now he knows the job description, so now he’s able to process it and to utilize it.”

    • Igbinosun said he’s more comfortable making checks pre-snap in the fall than he was in spring football. He added OSU’s defense uses a lot more checks than Ole Miss used.
    • In the spring, Igbinosun said he relied on Sonny Styles a lot for help understanding Jim Knowles’ scheme. He said he now has a much better understanding of the defense as a whole.
    • When thinking about Ohio State cornerbacks, Igbinosun said he thought of the BIA reputation and recalled the legacies of players like Jeff Okudah and Malcolm Jenkins. He said he wants to help Ohio State get back to that standard.
    • Igbinosun said Walton has preached to him the best aspect of a player’s game is his eyes, which allows him to be more disciplined and understand the opposition’s formations.
    • Igbinosun said it’s been “balanced” between lining up in man and zone schemes this fall camp.
    • On the competition for reps with other cornerbacks, Igbinosun said “competition breeds greatness” and that he knows the best players will be on the field.
    • Igbinosun said he’s been strictly used as an outside cornerback.
    • Igbinosun said Marvin Harrison Jr. is “the best player in the country” but said he "can check" him. He added he and Harrison Jr. “go at it” in practice a lot and that it’s usually a 50-50 split with who wins. “Going up against him makes everybody else easier.”
