Having too much QB talent might come back to hurt the Ohio State Football team

Ohio State has one of, if not the best QB room in recent history for college football. However with the amount of talent they have, it might just come back to haunt them some time later.

The entire quarterback room has talent for the Ohio State football team. There's no debate on that. Despite the fact that they have all shown strength separately, they all seem to share one common factor, they all want to compete.

Devin Brown has come out and said that he has no intention of leaving numerous times, Lincoln Kienholz shut down rumors via social media. Then Air Noland said that he is excited about his QB battle with Sayin. They all want to play and don't have plans for leaving Columbus anytime soon.

It hurts a little more to know that all of them have been playing well too. The freshman, Julian Sayin, has looked super accurate, Devin Brown seems to be the more well-rounded player, and Will Howard has been the best at drawing the play out when it doesn't go according to plan. I mean I still believe without a doubt Will Howard is starting this season, I can see some others getting play time here and there.

The thing is they just can't afford to keep this many quarterbacks, five is just too much. Plus with the addition of Tavien St. Clair in 2025, Ohio State is going to have to start making some decisions. If they do nothing they could put themselves at risk of letting a future star walk, simply because they didn't have enough time for them.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter if you're a freshman or a senior, your goal is to get on the field. If I'm in someone like Air Noland's situation I would see how this season pans, as far as practice and getting on the field goes and I would make a choice between transferring or not a lot sooner than later.

To put it simply, Ohio State just doesn't have the time right now to focus on all five quarterbacks, they can't be there to fix every mistake. This will make some of the QBs really rely on themselves to make sure they are doing everything right.

Another thing that could potentially hurt them is their recruiting for quarterback. I mean if I get an offer from a team that is stacked with that many QBs already above me, plus five-star Tavien St. Clair will end up being there soon, I won't probably look at a different team first. This could seriously affect the Buckeyes down the road if they aren't careful.

Ryan Day and Chip Kelly might need to sit down and be realistic there's no shot that all of these young quarterbacks will want to stay after a year or two if they hardly get to see the field, there might need to be a talk of who they need to stay.
