“I have accepted a preferred walk-on offer to The Ohio State University to continue my academic and football careers,” Vanatsky said on Twitter. “I am honored by the opportunity that the coaching staff has presented and am excited to get to work.”
Vanatsky is an Ohio native and played high school football at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. He threw for 1,984 yards and 28 touchdowns as a senior, according to WCPO.
Vanatsky’s addition to the Buckeyes roster gives Urban Meyer’s team some added depth behind center. Ohio State currently has five quarterbacks on its roster: Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow, Tate Martell, Matthew Baldwin and walk-on Kory Curtis.
Haskins, Burrow and Martell are battling for Ohio State’s starting quarterback job this spring. There’s a chance the team’s depth could take a hit if Burrow loses out on the job and opts to transfer over the summer.
