Buckeyes open practice, Meyer discusses team needs

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - In their first official act of the 2013 season, the Ohio State Buckeyes came in from the cold.

Coach Urban Meyer began his second season with the Buckeyes by overseeing the first spring workout inside the team's practice facility because of inclement weather.

Meyer patrolled the field looking at different position groups. He is particularly interested in filling huge departures on the defensive line and at linebacker.

Braxton Miller, on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated this week as a Heisman Trophy contender, went through his paces at quarterback.

Among those participating in their first collegiate practice were four early enrollees from the 2013 recruiting class: cornerbacks Eli Apple and Cam Burrows and defensive linemen Tyquan Lewis and Tracy Sprinkle.
