Ohio State will retain one veteran weapon in its receiving corps for next season, as Parris Campbell announced Thursday he will return to the Buckeyes for his senior season in 2018.

Campbell, a redshirt junior, had the option of leaving for the NFL draft, but instead elected to use the last remaining year of eligibility with the Buckeyes.

He finished the year as Ohio State's leading receiver with 584 yards and three touchdowns on 40 catches.
