Good morning, Ohio State fans, and welcome to the Scarlet Sunrise. Football will always be our focus, but every day we’ll cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Wyatt Davis already serving up pancakes for Buckeyes
Wyatt Davis was second on the Ohio State offensive line last season in knockdowns, also known as pancake blocks. Jonah Jackson topped Davis — barely.
Davis chose to come back to the Buckeyes for another chance to win a national title. The All-American guard is already producing pancakes for the Buckeyes — but they aren’t the kind that are going to earn him more national honors from his guard spot.
The Buckeyes video team made a “This is Sportscenter” parody video, one that featured Davis serving meals inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The only thing he serves to the defensive linemen, though, is pancakes.

“The Wavy Dub Special” is the first instance of Wyatt Davis handing out pancakes this fall. But it certainly won’t be the last.
Lettermen Live hosted by Roosters
Ohio State is less than two weeks away from kicking off its football season, and Lettermen Live hosted by Roosters is back to begin breaking down the season before it starts.
Lettermen Row senior writer Austin Ward is joined by former Buckeyes Anthony Schlegel, Michael Bennett, Justin Zwick and Doug Worthington for a discussion about the new tradition Ohio State is starting with the “Block O” jersey this season, the upcoming Big Ten season in general and more about the landscape of a crazy college football season so far.
Nicole Cox from Roosters also joined the show to give an update about how to safely enjoy Roosters while watching the Buckeyes this fall.
Don’t miss this wildly entertaining edition of Lettermen Live hosted by Roosters on Olentangy River Road in Columbus.
Elite 2022 tight end joins Birminology
With Bennett Christian already committed in the Class of 2022, it seems the Buckeyes are serious about taking a pair of tight ends in the next recruiting cycle. They’ve employed Christian to help land their top, complementary target: North Carolina 4-star standout Benji Gosnell.
Ohio State has made the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Gosnell a priority for months, buoyed by the long-term relationship that tight ends coach Kevin Wilson has with Gosnell’s head coach at East Surrey (Pilot Mountain, N.C.) High School, Trent Lowman.
Where does Benji Gosnell see is recruitment heading? With a brother playing at North Carolina, how have the Tar Heels benefitted from his proximity to Chapel Hill? How has his huge family impacted the way he’s grown up? Gosnell has answers to things and more in the latest edition of Birminology with Lettermen Row recruiting expert Birm.
