Three Ohio State football players with the most to lose from a poor Spring Game

The Ohio State football team will have its Spring Game on Saturday. These players really can't afford a bad showing in that game.

2. Brandon Inniss

One of the receivers who didn't see a ton of playing time last season was Brandon Inniss. He was one of the top receiver recruits in the 2023 recruiting class. He just had too many guys ahead of him on the depth chart to really get a chance to play as a true freshman.

Now that Marvin Harrison Jr. and Xavier Johnson have moved on, Inniss is in line to seal up that third receiver spot behind Emeka Egbuka and Carnell Tate. He's someone who shouldn't be forgotten. Yet, there is a player hot on his tail who is really close to overtaking him already.

True freshman Jeremiah Smith has already shown some ridiculous things in his short time with the Ohio State football program. Ryan Day is already fielding questions about what his ceiling could be. Smith is going to get playing time this season. It's just a matter of how much.

With a poor showing during the Spring Game, Inniss could find himself below Smith on the depth chart. He might not get a lot of playing time yet again. If he balls out and shows all of his skills, he can seal up that third receiver spot and maybe even challenge Tate for the second WR slot.

Inniss has a lot of talent. He just needs to get the playing time to showcase it. With the way that Ohio State recruits receivers, this is a big game for him. He's under a lot of pressure to go out there in perform in front of 90,000 people in the Shoe.

The final player on this list is in a big battle to keep his starting job on the offensive line.
