    Wide Receiver
    The candidates:
    Kamryn Babb (RS-Fr.), C.J. Saunders (Sr.), L'Christian Smith (RS-Fr.), Ellijah Gardiner (RS-So.), Garrett Wilson (Fr.), Jaelen Gill (RS-Fr.), Jaylen Harris (RS-So.), Demario McCall (RS-Jr.)

    Breakdown: After five years at Ohio State, Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin are gone. Austin Mack, K.J. Hill, Binjimen Victor and Chris Olave remain, but there are a couple openings in the rotation that a cadre of younger Buckeyes will compete for.

    With Campbell heading to the NFL, an opening exists at H-back behind Hill, who will take the majority of the snaps. With spring practice soon beginning, Gill, Saunders and McCall are the three leading candidates to back up Hill.

    Gill played running back his entire life until entering Ohio State's program, he spent 2018 redshirting, playing just 15 offensive snaps. But after learning wide receiver for a year, he'll be in the mix to back up Hill. Saunders is a former walk-on who played the eighth-most snaps of the wide receivers in 2018. McCall's position – H-back or running back – hasn't been determined.

    On the outside, Wilson, Babb, Smith, Harris and Gardiner will have a chance to join the rotation alongside Mack, Victor and Olave. Wilson enrolled in Ohio State in January, and all four other players redshirted the 2018 season.

    Coach Day:

    Austin Mack has been going back and forth between the X and Z receiver positions, with Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson also playing Z, while Binjimen Victor, Mack and Jaylen Harris have been getting reps at X. K.J. Hill, C.J. Saunders and Jaelen Gill have been getting reps at H-back, with Jeremy Ruckert also getting some reps at H in 12 personnel.

    I’m interested in watching this group develop. We lost a lot of talent last year.
