The Ohio State football team has some real momentum going right now. It starts with the staff.Ryan Day finally made some good coaching staff decisions and they got a top-level recruit today as well. Now the Buckeyes are starting to get some key players back for the 2024 season.

Denzel Burke already announced that he is returning for 2024, which is great for the secondary considering he was their best player back there. Now, another member of the secondary has decided to come back for 2024, which means almost the entire room will be back.

Jordan Hancock announced on social media that he too will be returning. That gives the Buckeyes a massive boost heading into next year because the only member of the secondary who's leaving is Josh Proctor. The pass defense should be stingy once again.

Hancock wasn't the only member of the Ohio State football team to announce he's returning for 2024 in the afternoon. Donovan Jackson also said he has decided to return for another year. Jackson is the best member of the offensive line and is the only one who played with any consistency.

Jackson still needs work and isn't perfect by any means, but keeping him is key for a unit that will have tons of turnover. The Buckeyes already grabbed Seth McLaughlin from the transfer portal to help that group and more changes are on the way too.

This is great news for the Buckeyes. It's good to have all of the good players from last year's team seemingly coming back. Now if they can only push the bad ones out who held starting roles, that's the final piece to this. There will be more stff chanages coming soon too.
