After what has felt like months of nothing but negative, heartbreaking news, the Ohio State beat has been relatively...upbeat (sorry) these last few days. Players and coaches are giving support to healthcare workers, recruiting is going well, and the NCAA is attempting to work with senior spring athletes who lost their final year of eligibility due to the coronavirus.

To help get you caught up, we’ve rounded up all the good stuff from around the Ohio State beat and beyond in today’s Buckeye Bits.


From around Land-Grant Holy Land...

With the graduation of Andre Wesson, and the potential departure of Kaleb Wesson, the Buckeyes are looking to crown their next man up. Enter: E.J. Liddell.

Ohio State football coaches and players took to their Twitter accounts to personally thank those working on the frontlines of this pandemic. Plus, other news you may have missed over the weekend.

Country’s No. 3 corner calls Ohio State DBU, talks Kerry Coombs

Jaheim Singletary, a cornerback for the class of 2022, said Ohio State/Coach Coombs can get him closer to his goal of getting to the NFL, referencing Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple, and Malik Hooker, and that he’s just waiting for them to “make it official with an offer.”


From around the hardwood...

Like many other Buckeyes, E.J. Liddell posted a video on Twitter, checking in from his home in Belleville, Illinois.


From around the mat...

Another man we don’t deserve.


From everywhere else...

The NCAA left it up to each program on whether or not they would provide financial aid to senior spring athletes returning for their extra season.
