WR returns for senior season after skipping 2024 NFL Draft.

Several players on the Ohio State Buckeyes roster have the ability to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft, and it is quite probable that they will do so

On Thursday, however, one of their most talented playmakers made the decision to delay his move to the professional level for another year.

The wide receiver Emeka Egbuka has made the decision to return at Ohio State for his senior season rather than submitting his name for consideration in the NFL Draft.

Although it may come as a surprise to some, Egbuka's choice is not completely illogical. After recording 74 catches for 1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2022


The 21-year-old had a disappointing year, with only 41 catches for 515 yards and four scores. This was a significant drop from his previous performance.

Wide receiver who stands 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 206 pounds is ranked as the eighth-best talent at his position by Pro Football Focus and is the 39th overall prospect on the organization's big board.

Over the course of the most of the season, he had been overshadowed by wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., who had 67 catches for 1,211 yards and 14 touchdown attempts.

On the other hand, Harrison Jr. is listed as the second best quarterback prospect in the NFL Draft by Pro Football Focus, only behind Caleb Williams of the University of Southern California.

As a result of Harrison Jr.'s departure, Egbuka has the opportunity to solidify his position as the Buckeyes' top wide receiver and demonstrate to NFL teams.
