    Cade Stover, TE
    After spending previous seasons in limbo, switching positions between tight end and linebacker, Stover not only settled in on the offensive side of the ball, but he also became a weapon in the passing game. His 36 receptions were the most by a Buckeyes tight end since Jeff Ellis caught 40 passes in 1988. His size (6 feet 4, 255 pounds) and playmaking will make him an attractive prospect if he declares.

    Cade Stover on his decision to return to Ohio State: “I felt uneasy, I don’t know if I would ever forgive myself leaving a place like this, that I’ve put so much into, on a note like that.” Stover thinks he can be “10 times better” than he was last season.

    • Stover was “super excited” that Keenan Bailey was promoted to tight ends coach and says he’s a “good culture” fit for Ohio State. “He’s a players’ coach, he’s gonna ride for us regardless.” Stover says “he’s a guy you can trust and go to war with.”
    • On his decision to return to Ohio State, Stover says “I felt uneasy, I don’t know if I would ever forgive myself leaving a place like this, that I’ve put so much into, on a note like that.” Stover thinks he can be “10 times better” than he was last season.
    • Stover calls having to leave the CFP semifinal due to injury “probably one of the hardest days of my life, hardest moment of my life for sure so far. You wait your whole life to get to that point and had an opportunity to play and that happens. … It was hard. It’s kind of even hard to talk about, to be honest with you.”
    • Stover says “as spoiled as we were with C.J. (Stroud)” at quarterback, he still trusts the development of Kyle McCord and Devin Brown as the potential next man up at QB in 2023.
    • Stover says the back injury he suffered at the end of last season probably “doubled” his reckless abandon on the football field.

    • Bailey said Ohio State has “one of the best tight ends in the country coming back” in Cade Stover and is excited to find out who else in the tight end room “can contribute at a championship level.”
