Quarterback Justin Fields is heading into the NFL, but one of his top receivers will be returning to Ohio State for another season.

Wide receiver Chris Olave announced his decision to stay in Columbus for another year on Monday afternoon.

Olave led the Buckeyes with 50 catches, 729 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns this season. He had 48 catches for 840 yards and 12 touchdowns during the 2019 season.

Fields and linebacker Baron Browning also announced their plans for 2021 on Monday. Browning said he will be entering the draft rather than returning for a fifth season thanks to the NCAA granting players the chance to return even if they’d played four years.

  1. He was going to get drafted but the mock drafts every one has been putting out has way too many receivers going in the 1st. With the Bama and LSU guys taking up the top 3 or 4 spots it is a deep class. If he wants to be a 1st or 2nd round pick waiting a year might be better.

  2. For a guy who isnt quite elite, this was probably not the year to come out. He made a smart business decision (yes, of course thats assuming he doesnt get hurt next season).

  3. Good move by Olave! One more year at OSU and he’ll be a sure candidate for a first round pick! I wish him well!
