Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins went 33-of-44 for 455 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 30-14 victory over Minnesota.
This is the second consecutive game that Haskins went exactly 33-for-44 with over 400 yards. Haskins continues to make his Heisman case with 2,331 yards on 72% completions and just south of 10.0 ypa with a 28/4 TD/INT ratio. This is going to be a special season for the Buckeye gunslinger. If things keep trending in this direction, he could be one of the first two or three quarterbacks off the board in April. Oct 13 - 3:52 PM

The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs believes Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins is likely to be a one-and-done.

This may seem like an obvious statement but players decide to stay in school all the time, especially with the sport of football. Crabbs explains his reasoning, "Haskins’ play continues to exceed expectations. And to put it mildly, the 2019 QB class looks like it’s pretty hopeless otherwise." As long as Haskins continues to play well we think it's very likely he declares and is one of the top quarterbacks selected in the upcoming draft.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 33-of-44 passes for 455 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 49-26 win over Indiana.

The six touchdown passes and 455 passing yards were both career-highs for the Heisman hopeful. Haskins (6'3/225) showed off his touch/accuracy and quality arm strength all game long, and he certainly helped his case as a future first-round NFL Draft Pick. Don't worry about his two interceptions either, as both came on plays where he was hit by Hoosiers as he was releasing the ball. This was simply a passing game clinic for Ohio State. Haskins and the Buckeyes will bring a 6-0 record into Minnesota next week.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang came away impressed with Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins' performance against Penn State on Saturday.

It wasn't his most accurate performance (22-of-39) but Rang notes Haskins' "toughness and resiliency" against the Nittany Lions in the comeback victory for Ohio State. "Haskins is technically eligible as a redshirt sophomore and has certainly shown off an intriguing skill-set, wowing with his accuracy and arm strength over the first month and entering the pivotal match-up with Penn State with a eye-popping 16 TDs against just one interception," Rang writes. He's not ready to declare Haskins (6'3/225) a first-round prospect just yet, but he mentiosn that this performance was more impressive than the last four combined.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 22-of-39 passes for 270 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 27-26 win at Penn State.

The Buckeyes looked to be on the ropes in front of the 'WhiteOut' in Happy Valley, but Haskins engineered a pair of late touchdown drives to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for his second signature win. Haskins led the team to a neutral-site win in Texas against TCU, and now a road victory in hostile territory against Penn State. The Heisman hopeful certainly added positively to his resume, and now the road gets a bit easier with Indiana up next.

Pro Football Focus projects Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins to be selected with the No. 32 overall pick.

Only Justin Herbert (No. 1) and Will Grier (No. 21) were selected ahead of Haskins (6'3/225) in PFF's early mock draft. The Ohio State quarterback was actually mocked to the Patriots in this one. Haskins has been playing like a first-round player this year, as he has a 16/1 TD/INT ratio while averaging 10 yards per pass attempt. All eyes will be on the Heisman hopeful this Saturday against Penn State. If Haskins doesn't finish the year off strong -- which would be surprising since he's so talented -- he has the option to return to school instead of declaring.
Sep 28 - 5:36 PM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 21-of-24 passes for 304 yards and five in Saturday's 49-6 victory over Tulane.

Every single one of those passes came prior to halftime. Haskins' start to the year has been about as impressive as you can get. Today, he became the first player in Big Ten history to have multiple five-TD games in the first four games of a season. He's got a 16/1 TD/INT rate on around 75-percent completions and a 10 ypa average.
Sep 22 - 7:23 PM

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard wouldn't be surprised if Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins is a high pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

Haskins excelled in his biggest test of the season against TCU on Saturday. Ledyard explained "Facing some of the most intense pressure of his young career, Haskins absorbed some shots, a plethora of drops from his receivers and an early deficit to help rally the team with several pinpoint passes." Ledyard knows that we need to see more of Haskins to figure out what kind of player he really is but his "tools and physical traits also indicate a future NFL stud." Haskins and Ohio State have their next test in two weeks on the road against No. 11 Penn State.
Sep 16 - 10:41 AM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 24-of-38 passes for 344 yards and two scores and ran for another score in a 40-28 victory over TCU on Saturday in Arlington.

Haskins was so close to having a bigger game, as there were some drops and a few throws where the sophomore signal-caller just missed. Still, a strong game in what was clearly the biggest test of the season for Haskins in 2018. The TCU defense has NFL players on it, and he sliced the secondary up while moving around in the pocket and showing impressive touch on the pass. Haskins is a legitimate Heisman contender right now. Ohio State gets a much easier test next Saturday against Tulane.
Sep 15 - 11:55 PM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 20-of-23 passes for 233 yards and four touchdowns in Ohio State's 52-3 win over Rutgers.

Haskins now has nine touchdowns through two games, albeit against cupcake opponents. He was pulled after a scoring drive to start the second half, otherwise his stats could have been even better. Ohio State opened up the scoring with a beautiful 38-yard strike from Haskins to WR Johnnie Dixon. He is a legitimate Heisman candidate if his play continues at this kind of level. They face No. 16 TCU next weekend in their final game without HC Urban Meyer--who's absence hasn't made much of a difference so far-- and should present a bit more of a challenge.
Sep 8 - 6:58 PM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins threw for five touchdowns in a 77-31 demolition of Oregon State on Saturday.

Haskins was outstanding, going 22-for-30 for 313 yards and a 5/1 TD/INT rate. He also rushed for 24 yards on two scampers. With five TD passes, Haskins becomes the fifth player in Ohio State history to throw for five scores in a game, joining J.T. Barrett (four times), Bobby Hoying (twice), Kenny Guiton and John Borton. Haskins is a darkhorse Heisman candidate. Despite losing Barrett, the Buckeyes may have upgraded behind center.

CBS Sports college football writer Tom Fornelli lists Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins as a likely breakout candidate for the 2018 season.

Haskins hasn't played much, but when he has been on the field, there have been flashes of electricity, as Fornelli notes. He also notes that he shows more arm talent than former starter J.T. Barrett, and he certainly can make plays with his legs as well. As Fornelli summarizes: "There are a lot of questions surrounding the Ohio State football program at the moment, but Haskins isn't one of them."

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that the transition from former starting QB J.T. Barrett to redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins will "change the way we attack defenses."

"His skill set is very different from J.T. Barrett. His release, his size, his accuracy are his strengths," Meyer said, later adding that in essence, the passing offense will be "more involved" for the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Haskins. As much as we loved Barrett's heart and drive, we think this slight shift in offensive philosophy could pay dividends for the Buckeyes, who remain awash in skill-position talent for Haskins to play around with. There was a sometime lack of consistency in OSU's offense with Barrett at the helm.
Jul 25 - 4:00 PM

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer announced redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins will enter preseason camp as the team's starting quarterback.

Haskins was given the first opportunity to be the starter after his main competition, Joe Burrow, transferred to LSU as a graduate earlier this offseason. In an effort to make sure Haskins doesn't become complacent, Meyer mentioned that sophomore Tate Martell would compete for the top job when practices continue towards the end of summer. At this point there isn't much of a chance Martell starts unless he blows them away in the preseason. Haskins appeared in multiple games last season but mostly in mop-up duty. His final stat line in 2017 ended up being impressive as he completed 40-of-57 passes (70.2%) for 565 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. His first start is scheduled to come against Oregon State on September 1st.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins will "get the first opportunity to be the starter."

This shouldn't come as a huge surprise after Haskins' main competition, Joe Burrow, decided to transfer out last week. Speaking at the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club on Monday, Meyer reminisced about the impressive spot performance Haskins delivered against Michigan after J.T. Barrett was forced out with a knee injury in the most recent incarnation of The Game. The 6-foot-2, 188-pound redshirt sophomore connected on 6-of-7 passes for 94 yards while rushing for 24 yards in that emergency showing. Espousing Haskins' virtues on Monday, Meyer said that he possesses a "great release" to pair with "good size" and respectable mobility. Assuming all goes off without a hitch in August camp, our first opportunity to see Haskins start will come when the Buckeyes open against Oregon State on Sept. 1 a few months down the road.
