Coach Urban Meyer announced Wednesday that the program will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross for relief efforts.

The 2017 team includes seven players from Texas, including several who have family near Houston.

  • J.T. Barrett, from Wichita Falls
  • Baron Browning, from Fort Worth
  • J.K. Dobbins, from La Grange
  • Elijah Gardiner, from Kemp
  • Demetrius Knox, Fort Worth
  • Jeffrey Okudah, from Grand Prairie
  • Kendall Sheffield, from Missouri City

The players will make a contribution, along with the coaching staff, until the $10,000 goal is reached.

For Thursday night's preseason opener, Ohio State and the Indiana football team will wear custom "Houston Strong" helmet stickers during the game at the Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana.
