Ohio State will have its leading pass-catcher back for one more season.
Chris Olave announced Monday he'll return for his senior campaign with the Buckeyes.
Olave racked up 110 catches for 1,766 yards and 22 touchdowns through his first three years with the Buckeyes. He led the team in receiving yards and touchdown receptions in each of the last two campaigns, setting a career high with 50 receptions in 2020 despite playing in just seven games due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The first-team All-Big Ten wideout was widely projected to be a first-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Olave's return is great news for Justin Fields' future replacement at quarterback. Fields, the Buckeyes' starter since 2018, declared for the upcoming draft Monday.
