When Ohio State kicks off its Big Ten schedule on Oct. 24, it will have two big names available to play that previously opted out of the 2020 college football season. Offensive lineman Wyatt Davis and cornerback Shaun Wade have officially been cleared to play, Buckeyes coach Ryan Day confirmed on Monday.
"Wyatt got great news and Shaun's good to go," Day said on his weekly Buckeye Roundtable Whow radio show, per 247Sports. "It's great to have those guys back."
The returns are significant as Davis and Wade are considered potential first-round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. With the Big Ten originally canceling football on Aug. 11, Davis and Wade opted out in order to prepare.
