01/12/18 - (WR) - Parris Campbell, rJr, 6-0, 208
Ohio State wide receivers Parris Campbell and Johnnie Dixon are returning for next season. Campbell and Dixon made their intentions known via their respective post Thursday on Twitter. A redshirt sophomore, Campbell posted a video of himself with one finger raised and the caption: "One more." Campbell recorded 40 receptions for 583 yards and three touchdowns last season. He began the season with six catches for 136 yards and a touchdown in a 49-21 win over Indiana. Campbell also rushed 10 times for 132 yards and a touchdown. Dixon also made his intentions clear over social media, writing: "Unfinished business! 1 last ride #Gobucks. - The Sports Xchange


01/08/18 - (OLB) - *Jerome Baker, Jr, 6-1, 225
Ohio State junior Jerome Baker, an athletic linebacker with first-round potential, announced Monday he is entering the NFL Draft. NFLDraftScout.com lists him as the top outside linebacker in the junior class with a first- or second-round grade. Baker, however, was a bit disappointing this season, when he made 72 tackles, including eight for loss and three sacks. NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst Rob Rang wrote of Baker: "Quick passes to backs and tight ends are forcing defensive coordinators to find athletic linebackers who can cover with many willing to sacrifice size for speed. Because of this fact, Baker has a chance to earn an early selection. "That said, one shouldn't have to search for linebackers on tape and all too often that has been the case with Baker. No one denies that he possesses rare athleticism for the position -- including agility and straight-line speed -- but those traits must be complemented by greater awareness and take-on strength if Baker is to live up to the success of the Ohio State linebackers who preceded him."

Baker (6-1, 225) made 83 tackles as a sophomore, including 9.5 for loss and three sacks, and picked off two passes. His ability to cover, which should be a strength, will be scrutinized as he goes through the draft process. According to Rang, Baker "fails to consistently provide an initial pop to backs and tight ends, allowing receivers free release and immediate separation in man coverage. Though he is fast enough to recover, Baker too often turns back to steal looks at the quarterback, inexplicably losing track of his coverage responsibilities." He is the third Ohio State player to leave early this offseason, joining cornerback Denzel Ward and defensive end Sam Hubbard. - The Sports Xchange

01/04/18 - (SS) - Damon Webb, Sr, 5-10, 196
2017 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BOWL TEAM: Secondary: Damon Webb, Ohio State (Cotton): Webb scored on a 23-yard interception return and also had a 20-yard fumble return as well as five solo tackles. - AP College Football


01/04/18 - (DE) - *Sam Hubbard, rJr, 6-5, 265
2017 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BOWL TEAM: Defensive Line: Sam Hubbard, Ohio State (Cotton): Hubbard was credited with 2 sacks of Ohio State's eight sacks in the fifth-ranked Buckeyes' 24-7 triumph over No. 8 Southern California. Hubbard also had 3 tackles for loss. - AP College Football


12/30/17 - (DE) - *Sam Hubbard, rJr, 6-5, 265
Ohio State junior defensive end Sam Hubbard, a first-round prospect, will enter the 2018 NFL Draft, he announced Saturday morning on social media. Hubbard, a second-team All-Big Ten selection, ended his college career in style, with 2 1/2 sacks of USC quarterback Sam Darnold in the Buckeyes' 24-7 Cotton Bowl victory Friday night. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Hubbard as the 32nd-best prospect for 2018, putting him at the end of the first round. Hubbard (6-5, 265) finished the season with 13 1/2 tackles for loss, including seven sacks. He finished his Ohio State career with 29 1/2 tackles for loss and 17 sacks. Ohio State's dominant 2017 defensive line also will lose seniors Tyquan Lewis and Jayln Holmes, but standout end Nick Bosa (16 tackles for loss, 8 1/2 sacks) will be back as a junior in 2018 to lead a still-deep unit. - The Sports Xchange


12/30/17 - (QB) - J.T. Barrett, rSr, 6-1, 220
A slew of USC turnovers, along with the sticky hands of safety Damon Webb, helped propel No. 5 Ohio State to a dominant 24-7 victory over No. 8 USC in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic on Friday night at AT&T Stadium. In a classic clash of college football bluebloods that normally takes place on the West Coast, two takeaways by Webb were key to the Buckeyes taking control early. Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett also contributed two touchdown runs for the Big Ten champions, who were just on the outside of the College Football Playoff and finished the season 12-2. Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold had a forgettable showing in what could be his final collegiate game. The sophomore didn't throw a touchdown pass and turned it over three times, including an interception that was returned for a touchdown by Webb. USC finished with four turnovers.

Darnold (26 of 45 for 356 yards, no TDs, one interception) did become the first USC player to pass for 4,000 yards in a season. The Pac-12 champs (11-3) also had a seven-game winning streak in the series snapped. The last Ohio State win over USC had been in the 1974 Rose Bowl. The misery started quickly for the Trojans, who turned it over on their first possession as Deontay Burnett fumbled after his first catch. Webb scooped up the loose ball and returned it to the USC 19. Barrett finished off the short drive with a keeper from the 1. A long march by the Buckeyes ended in a short field goal for a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter. Seconds later Webb struck again by jumping a route for a 23-yard pick-6 off Darnold. Darnold's lost fumble later in the quarter resulted in another Barrett scoring run, as Ohio State went up 24-0. - The Sports Xchange

12/30/17 - (CB) - *Denzel Ward, Jr, 5-10, 191
Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward escalated the trend of top NFL prospects sitting out bowl games when he skipped Friday night's Cotton Bowl matchup against USC in order to avoid potential injury. Ward, a junior who will enter the 2018 NFL Draft, was one of two projected first-rounders who chose not to play Friday. North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb sat out his team's victory over Arizona State in the Sun Bowl. Ward practiced with the Buckeyes leading up to the bowl game, with coaches knowing he would make a game-day decision, according to a statement from the school. Ward was on the sideline during the game. "This was a very difficult decision that I ultimately had to make," Ward wrote on social media. "But at the end of the day, I feel this is the best decision for my family and I. I had countless conversations with my coaches about this decision well before the game."

What began as a trickle last season -- Stanford's Christian McCaffrey and LSU's Leonard Fournette sat out their respective bowl games -- has turned into a wave this season. Not only are more prospects bypassing the postseason, but doing so in bigger bowls, such as the Cotton, where the No. 5 Buckeyes played the No. 8 Trojans. NFLDraftScout.com rates Ward as the 23rd-best overall prospect. Chubb is No. 5. Other likely first-rounders who did not play in this postseason are Florida State safety Derwin James (Independence Bowl) and Texas offensive tackle Connor Williams (Texas Bowl). "Me and my family sat down and felt for me it was best not to play in this game," Chubb said in the Raleigh News & Observer. "I gave my all to this university for four years. I feel like one game doesn't define who I am as a person or a player. - The Sports Xchange
