Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told reporters Friday that sophomore Dwayne Haskins will begin preseason camp as the Buckeyes' starting quarterback.
Meyer named Haskins that starter while speaking at the Ohio State Football Job Fair in Columbus. However, he also said that fellow sophomore Tate Martell will get to compete for the job.
Haskins, Martell and Joe Burrow vied for the starting role during spring practice, but Burrow later transferred to LSU in May.
Haskins, 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds, completed 40 of 57 passes for 565 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in eight games as a backup last season.
