Ohio State staff doesn't name starting QB after spring game

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State coach Ryan Day and offensive coordinator Chip Kelly said the Buckeyes are still not ready to name a starting quarterback coming out of Saturday's spring game.

Kansas State transfer Will Howard is battling junior Devin Brown and five-star freshman Julian Sayin, who originally signed with Alabama before enrolling at Ohio State. Sophomore Lincoln Kienholz and freshman Air Noland also got snaps in the spring game.

Howard, who started 12 games for Kansas State last season, completed 9 of 13 passes for 77 yards Saturday. Brown tossed the only touchdown pass. Sayin finished with a game-high passing 85 yards, but also threw a pick-six.
