The big news, Jim Harbaugh was adamant new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis will indeed call the plays. But then he added this:
Typical of this time of year, several key upperclassmen are being held out for injuries.
On the quarterback pecking order:
Among the early enrollees, with Zach Charbonnet still recovering from a knee injury, it's tight end Erick All that has caught Harbaugh's attention so far.
Harbaugh says his long-time friendship with former defensive line coach Greg Mattison is put on hold until he's done coaching for the Buckeyes.
With the new offense going to more of a spread, expect to see Ben Mason play more on defense this season.
Harbaugh said Josh Ross seems poised to take the next step at linebacker, and then said a former top recruit is starting to emerge at the position as well.
This transfer was already accounted for in our 2019 roster projections.
