This week on Twitter: Trevor Lawrence respects Justin Fields, Richard Sherman approves Gee Scott Jr.’s position change.

This week on Twitter is our weekly take a look at some of the best, most fun tweets of the week from current and former Ohio state players and other Ohio state accounts.

Trevor Lawrence. Justin Fields. Justin Fields. Trevor Lawrence.

The two great college quarterbacks of all time battled for # 1 overall in their 2018 recruiting class in high school and competed on the field in consecutive college football playoffs.

It should come as no surprise, then, that over the many years of being high-ranking quarterbacks and being neck-to-neck, they have achieved mutual respect for one another.

Well, game recognize game. After Field’s impressive pro-day appearance, Lawrence called him on social media.

Do appreciate it, brother.

Just another tiny chapter in the book comparing these two throughout the rest of their NFL careers.

And as for NFL careers, there seem to be people out there who question Fields’ work ethic and love of football, despite the glowing reviews of his work ethic and love of football during his two years in Columbus.

By bringing these people’s opinions to the fore in the pre-draft conversation, ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky got into hot water this week with Buckeye fans and many others.

Dan Orlovsky on tonight’s @PatMcAfeeShow show had some interesting quotes received from connoisseurs.

Last guy in, first guy out.

Heard there are some questions about Justin Fields’ work ethic.

Where is his desire to be a great quarterback?

Which made Orlovsky withdraw the very next day.

Regarding fields ….

And that led to The Draft Network’s Benjamin Solak pointing out that Fields was destroyed in the Sugar Bowl and came back a game later to throw a touchdown pass at a critical moment. I wonder if it’s because he loves the game.

God I wish Justin Fields wanted to be great

There have been a few instances in the past where ex-Buckeyes who dropped out of the program still had positive things to say about the coaching staff. Think back to the time when CJ Hicks told Eleven Warriors in 2022 in Ohio that his cousin, recipient L’Christian “Blue” Smith, had been transferred to Cincinnati from Ohio, but the employees were in Columbus still greatly admired.

It looks like there is a lot of it, as Mookie Cooper, former Buckeye and now Mizzou Tiger, still has a lot of respect for the veterans who showed him the way at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

No cap I learned so much from certain older people at O ​​State when they performed on Pro Day. Show a young woman that you can really do it … # Dreams2Reality

Dwayne Haskins spoke of former Buckeyes respecting their pro-day and showed some love too.

Proud horse chestnut! Deserved Classmates!

If you love #BracketSZN and miss soccer in the state of Ohio, then there’s nothing you want to see more than the Bracket of Best Buckeye Moments contest that the soccer program’s official Twitter account posted over the past few weeks.

That rolls into the next round!

Voting will start soon … #GoBuckeyes

And if part of that longing for soccer in Ohio is the misery in Michigan, then at least Twitter user @kbonay gave you a little fix after the Wolverines lost to UCLA in the Elite Eight.

We’ve already talked about Gee Scott Jr.’s upbringing and how he dated NFL greats like Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson, and Richard Sherman in Seattle.

Now that Scott has apparently shifted positions from the receiver to the narrow end, Scott’s father has reached out to Sherman to measure his thoughts on the position switch. It’s all thumbs up from the all-pro cornerback.

Great train !!!!

In conclusion, baseball is back!

And the seasons of the Reds and Indians are already over.

In honor of MLB, which is back in action, here is a video of the first pitches of some former Buckeyes in their professional environment.

Rank these Buckeye first pitches … # GoBuckeyes x #OpeningDay @ CJ1two @ b_price53 @ CurtisSamuel4__ @denzelward @jbbigbear @ BraxtonMiller5 @ PCampbell21 @ryandaytime

Except for Chase Young (and without Joe Burrow) who will be the next former Buckeye to be knocked out first place and what city will it be in?
