This Saturday at Ohio Stadium, coaches, fans, and teammates will honor the Ohio State football seniors who will be playing in their final home game at the Horseshoe. It’s a surreal moment watching the men who we have cheered on for four or more seasons exit the locker room and run onto the field one by one for the last time.

This season, Buckeye fans will see a pretty large number make that track from the southeast corner to the home side of the field with flowers in hand to give to their mother before giving their parents and or family a hug. Ryan Day is also there to greet each player with a handshake and hug, offering one last word of encouragement and gratitude.

Given the NCAA’s change in eligibility rules due to the 2020 COVID season, some seniors will still have a year of eligibility remaining if they desire to stay for one more year. It is unclear who on the current roster might decide to take advantage of that rule at this time. Given that fact, here are the seniors who could possibly be playing in their final home game this Saturday:

Graduate seniors with no eligibility remaining:

WR        Xavier Johnson

SAF        Josh Proctor

OL          Matthew Jones

QB         Tristan Gebbia

Seniors who could choose to use another year of eligibility due to COVID if they desire to come back:

TE          Cade Stover

LB          Tommy Eichenberg

LB          Steele Chambers

WR        Julian Fleming

SAF        Latham Ransom

LB          Cody Simon

RD         Chip Trayanum

TE          Gee Scott Jr.

SAF        Ja’Had Carter

OL          Victor Cutler Jr.

OL          Enokk Vimahi

DL          Jaden McKenzie

When the final list of players who will be taking their senior walk is released, we will be sure to report on it.
