    Just watched a highlight video from last season at Lake Travis. Baldwin has some ridiculous touch passes on it. Making extremely nice back shoulder passes on fade routes, hitting receivers right out of their breaks. I’m not overlooking Martell as he will be extremely impressive in his own right, but Baldwin and Garrett Wilson are going to be ridiculous together a couple years down the line.

    Something special. He and Wilson are going to be fun to watch.

    Baldwin is definitely impressive in his own right, I thought he was a very underrated add mostly because of the Emory Jones defection. Seems like the coaches love how he's looked thus far, he's just got a little bit of time to go behind Haskins and Martell. However, I think learning from those guys and developing both physically and mentally will benefit him greatly down the road, particularly with the injury coming out of HS. Definitely also love the pre-existing relationship with Wilson, going to be a really fun combo to watch.

    Hearing the same. QB will not be a problem next or the year after, no matter what happens with Justin Fields. (I do want Fields though because... kid is special)

    OSU Freshman QB Matthew Baldwin on Justin Fields: ‘I’m not afraid of competition’


    If there is a day without competition for an Ohio State Buckeye, it’s because they didn’t have to come to the football facilities that day. Other than that, competition rages between those walls wherever players gather.

    The most prominent in-team competition in football is almost always the quarterback position, and the Buckeyes will likely have a battle on their hands in the spring and fall at that position.

    Expected to be a competition between just Tate Martell and Matthew Baldwin, those vying to be the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback next season may have grown by one when Georgia freshman Justin Fields announced his transfer to Ohio State on Friday.

    Fields had been rumored to end up at Ohio State for the last couple of weeks, and he carries with him quite a reputation as a prospect. It’s still a question if he will be ruled eligible immediately, but when the final ruling comes down likely sometime between now and May, he is expected to be eligible to play in 2019.

    But don’t expect Baldwin and Martell to just roll over. We already know Martell has no plans of doing it, and neither does Baldwin.

    The Need for Competitive Spirit
    Above arm strength or running ability, when it came to evaluating quarterbacks, Urban Meyer would start with competitive spirit and toughness.

    A year ago on the early signing day, Meyer spoke with reporters, going over the Buckeyes’ recruiting class. When he was asked about Baldwin, he didn’t talk about arm strength or accuracy, he talked about his loyalty to his high school and about seeing him perform on the biggest stage and competing the entire way.

    Baldwin also threw the ball well and could keep plays alive with his feet, but it was that competitive spirit that Meyer talked about over a year ago.

    Only a starter for one season at his Lake Travis High School, Baldwin stuck it out with his team rather than leave and look for an easier path to a starting job.

    That experience stays with him today and fuels him towards the competitions to come.

    “Charlie Brewer, the quarterback at Baylor, he was the MVP of the Texas Bowl last week, he started for two years and so I was under him,” Baldwin explained. “I had the option to transfer out my sophomore year, but I never did. I’m not afraid of competition. I welcome it because the best player is going to play here. There’s no politics. I hope I can be the best player.”

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    I’m going to say this guy is one of the more valuable members of the team among those appearing to not be in the drivers seat to have a starting role in 2019.

    Looking at true, quality QB depth that hopefully projects out a few years he heads up a pretty short list.

    Whoever finishes second this spring is one snap away from being the starter. Heck, I even recall a team winning a NATTY with their third string QB if you can believe that. If you don't believe me, I can probably dig up video evidence somewhere on the interwebs.

    I like everything about this guy! We are blessed to have a group of gifted QBs that want to compete.
