OSU offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said he’s excited to finally get to work with freshman quarterback Mason Rudolph.

“He’s done a great job in the weight room, training, off-season conditioning and the film room as well,” Yurcich said. “He’s been great.

But Seaton said his off-season goals are “to get better. I think I’m gunning for the starting role at fullback, and I’d just like to get on the level that Kye Staley was on.”
