Kerry Coombs Expects Ohio State Defensive Backs to Have “Fearless Mentality”

Realistically, Ohio State’s defensive backs should probably be expected to have some growing pains this season.

Shaun Wade is the only returning defensive back who has been a regular starter for the Buckeyes, and even Wade is moving to a new position as he shifts to outside cornerback after previously playing slot cornerback. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if the collective inexperience of the secondary leads to some lapses on the back end of Ohio State’s defense in 2020, especially early in the year.

Kerry Coombs doesn’t want his defensive backs to be thinking like that, though.
