COLUMBUS — Miamisburg High School graduate Josh Myers put himself in a position to compete for the starting center job with the Ohio State Buckeyes with his performance in the final two weeks of spring practices.
That was the gist of offensive line coach Greg Studrawa’s comments Wednesday as Ohio State’s assistant coaches met with the media to review the spring season. The 6-foot-5, 308-pound Myers, who redshirted last season as a freshman, will compete with Brady Taylor, a 6-5, 302-pound redshirt senior.

Taylor worked with the first-team offense in the spring game and left spring practices with the starting position, head coach Urban Meyer said Saturday, but still has to earn it in the preseason.
“That battle is continuous,” Studrawa said. “Both of those guys are playing well. Josh Myers the last two weeks was outstanding. He struggled the first two, but the last two, including in the spring game, he was outstanding, and Brady’s been steady. Those guys are going to go right through the summer, right into camp, battling it out for that spot.”

Studrawa said Myers, who was the top-ranked recruit in Ohio in 2017, improved in his understanding of the offense and in his snap consistency, which the coaches grade every day on a chart. Myers started for the Scarlet team in the spring game and spent most of the game snapping the ball to quarterback Tate Martell.
