Ohio State Football: Fiesta Bowl Practice Observations: Day 2

Ohio State practiced for the second time in Arizona on Wednesday.

PHOENIX - The Buckeyes second practice in Arizona did not provide as much news and notes as the first, however Ohio State did have a few guests on Wednesday. 

  • Boston College head coach Steve Addazio was in attendance at Ohio State's practice on Wednesday. Addazio coached under Urban Meyer at Florida. Addazio and the Eagles are coming off of a 36-30 Quick Lane Bowl victory over Maryland on Dec. 26. 
  • Former Ohio State quarterback and ESPN personality Kirk Herbstreit was also in attendance. 
  • Most Buckeyes were not in shoulder pads, but did all wear thigh pads. The Ohio State quarterbacks wore full gear however, including J.T. Barrett. 
  • Speaking of quarterbacks, Stephen Collier was practicing with the Buckeyes and going through individual QB drills. He has been out all season with an ACL injury suffered in the 2016 Spring Game. 
  • Ohio State's top three punt returners were no surprise as Curtis Samuel, Dontre Wilson and Demario McCall all got significant reps. KJ Hill and Corey Smith also got a few reps. 
  • A Houston Texans scout was also in attendance.
