On first glance it could be Johnsongrass--hard to see root and collar blade. Or maybe Dallisigrass, but Ohio may be too far north for it, then it could be something like Orchardgrass or just tall fescue. Need to see the seed pods and roots to be sure. Check the label for these four (4) and see.

Could by timothy. Timothy looks like quackgrass, but has a tall ligule and no rhizomes.

Too early for Johnson Grass to be that size....

Looking at the clasping auricles, and the "clumpy" look....if it has a rhizome root structure it is probably Quack!

if your area was once a corn field, in past 5 yrs, might be associated w the johnson weed. Although, looks like quack to me.

I'm not seeing any clasping auricles there guys. It can't be Quack since it doesn't have them. I'm with Larry. I'm going vote for orchard grass. If it was Johnson grass, it would have that trademark white stripe running down the blades.

Look closely Victor....I think they are there. You can see them really well on the second stem on your right! With the "blur" in the pic it is hard to see....but I think they are definilty there. Good point on the prominant midrid on the J Grass!
