Tributes poured in from Ohio Stadium all week. On Saturday, a student played the violin at the Haskins Memorial in Carmen Ohio Stadium.
At a meeting with the media this week, Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day revealed the team plans to honor Haskins during this Saturday’s spring game.
Haskins played for Ohio State in 2017 before hitting record numbers as the team’s starter in 2018. He threw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns, both of which were season-bests by a Buckeyes quarterback. Not only that, he also threw for six touchdowns in a game twice this year.
After an outstanding campaign in which he won the Big 10 championship and the Rose Bowl, Haskins was drafted into the 2019 NFL Draft, where he was selected by the Washington Commanders with the 15th overall pick. Haskins then signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2021.
Haskins trained with Steelers quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers in South Florida.
