"(Our assistant coaches) have a lot of fun with it,” Gundy said. "We split the coaches and they put in trick plays. It's a really good event for everybody. Our alumni weekend's involved, so a lot of ex-players come back. It should be a great day.”
As many as eight receivers could end up catching passes this season.
"We're pretty deep at receiver now, with guys who redshirted last year, plus Damian (Davis)
who played a little last year,” said quarterback Zac Robinson
. "With (Josh) Cooper
, Hubert Anyiam
, Will Cole
, they're all still learning but they're capable of making some big plays.
"With all the other guys I think we're a legitimate two deep at all three (receiver) spots. There's some guys still learning but talent-wise it's the best since I've been here.”
During scrimmages the past two weeks the offense is at a slight disadvantage because there's no stoppage of play.
"The offense really can't make adjustments in a scrimmage,” Brewer said. "You just keep rolling and call plays. You'd like to say, ‘Hey, let's go back and do this,' but you don't have the time to tell the kids those type of things.”
Senior safety T.J. Bell
, younger brother of former OSU running back Tatum Bell
, has held his spot on the second team. Bell intercepted a pass in the first major scrimmage two weeks ago.
"T.J. has done the best job of anyone in my group to come along,” said safeties coach Joe DeForest
. "He's been moved around his whole career. He's done a tremendous job of going from safety to cornerback back to safety. He's had a really good spring.”
