Ohio State welcomed back two recent stars to serve as honorary coaches at the annual spring game. Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier and Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Malcolm Jenkins are the honorary coaches for the Buckeyes' spring game this morning.
Buckeyes fans were especially happy to see Shazier. The 25-year-old linebacker suffered a scary spinal injury against the Cincinnati Bengals in December and has undergone several surgeries in the months following his injury.
He rolled into the spring game on a golf cart.
It's great to see Shazier standing and delivering a message to the Buckeyes.
The 2018 Ohio State spring game kicked off this morning despite a threat of inclement weather. The game was moved up as a result of the weather.
