Top Talented Star Confirm He Wants To Stay At Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State wide receiver Emeka Egbuka has disclosed the reasons behind his decision to return for the 2024 season. Initially on a trajectory to enter the NFL Draft after a successful stint as a return specialist and a 1,000-yard season in 2022, Egbuka faced setbacks due to injuries in the 2023 season.

Speaking on 97.1 The Fan’s ‘Morning Juice’ during the 2024 Buckeye Cruise, Egbuka acknowledged the challenges of injuries in football but emphasized that the experience led him to a realization and an opportunity. He expressed his belief that returning for a fourth year at Ohio State aligns with the plan that fate had in store for him.

The wide receiver, who played a crucial role in the Buckeyes’ 2022 season, admitted that the decision to return was a tough and back-and-forth process, relying heavily on his faith. Ultimately, Egbuka sees himself as the leader in the wide receiver room and is committed to making the most of the opportunity.

With 124 career catches for 1,857 yards and 14 touchdowns, Egbuka aims to make a significant impact in the upcoming season, potentially moving up the school’s all-time leaderboards. His return, along with other 2021 recruiting class members who also felt their time at Ohio State was incomplete, forms a collective choice shaping the foundation of the 2024 roster.

Additionally, Gee Scott Jr. and newcomer Joey Velazquez earned the title of Dudes of the Week for their impressive performances during winter workouts. Scott, a seasoned tight end, is set to return for his fifth season, while Velazquez, a Columbus native and former Michigan player in both football and baseball, will contribute as a walk-on linebacker for Ohio State.
