Ohio State enters the 2018 season as a national title contender. This is the case even though the Buckeyes haven't settled on a starting quarterback yet.

The three-headed race between Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow and Tate Martell will continue into training camp. Haskins is the perceived favorite, but Urban Meyer hasn't specified who he will receive the keys of the offense.

If Haskins eventually is named the starter, Buckeye fans will appreciate if he carries some of the confidence he displayed on Twitter today into the season.

Responding to an article from Sporting News naming Penn State's Trace McSorley the top quarterback in the country, Haskins implied that he's gunning for the No. 1 spot.

"Climb to the top then blow the ladder up...#shhh," he tweeted.

Haskins has yet to start a game for OSU, but he looked good in limited duty last season. His best performance came in the season-ending win over Michigan when he replaced J.T. Barrett at one point and threw for 94 yards and rushed for 24 more.

If he keeps that up, he might not be the No. 1 QB in the nation, but he should be fine as Ohio State's top choice.

Ohio State will open its 2018 season against Oregon State on Sept. 1.
