The Ohio State football team is busy preparing to play Missouri in the Cotton Bowl in couple of weeks. A few players have announced that they will indeed be playing in the game, which will be great to see. But others are undecided about both the bowl game and sticking around next season.

Two players that are currently deciding between the NFL and another season in Columbus are running back TreVeyon Henderson and wide receiver Emeka Egbuka. I think both should stay for one more year.

When considering whether or not the enter the NFL Draft, I have always been a proponent of letting the kids take the security of NFL money. They only have so many reps and plays in them before their bodies start breaking down. But when it comes to these two players, they need to prove that they can actually stay healthy for a full season before moving on.

When it comes to Henderson, he’s an elite talent. I think he has all the makings of a very quality NFL running back. But, especially in the NFL, your best ability is your availability and Henderson has been anything but, missing multiple games the past two seasons. Henderson is someone who very likely would slip in the draft due to his injury history. If he can come back to Columbus next season, handle the load while staying healthy, he very likely could be a back-end of the first round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft.

When it comes to Egbuka, much of the same applies. He was banged up all season, and when on the field he did not look like the 2022 version of himself who dominated in the slot. Like Henderson, Egbuka has an elite skill set that can translate to the NFL, but he was not able to apply it last season. If he can come back next year, be the true number one receiver for the Buckeyes and put-up big states, then Egbuka would be a lock to go in the first round of the ’25 Draft.

NEXT: One transfer player who makes sense for Ohio State
Plus, it would be a monster win for Ryan Day and this Buckeye offense. These two players would help tremendously in determining the fate of how next season goes for that Ohio State football team. Hopefully, they decide to stick around, for all parties involved.

Signing Day is soon and the Ohio State football team will be adding some players from the 2024 class into the program. Jeremiah Smith is a name that should at least sound a little familiar, he is a wide receiver from Chaminade-Madonna Prep. Smith is 6’3 and about 200 pounds.

Seeing his highlights, he shows that he can take a pass that’s about 5 or 10 yards and turn it into a big play. Also, his route running could be compared to Stefon Diggs from the Buffalo Bills. With Marvin Harrison Jr most likely leaving and Julian Fleming in the transfer portal, Jeremiah Smith has a real chance to see the field this next season and could even put up some good stats for a freshman.

Another Ohio State commit is Eddrick Houston, D-lineman. Out of Buford, GA Houston showed all why he is so highly recruited. Houston also can make plays even after the QB throws the ball to the receiver, tracking down the receiver and hitting him. In the 2023 season, he was able to get 45 tackles and 5 sacks. Eddrick Houston chose Ohio State over other programs such as Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, and USC. Houston was also put in at tight end for some plays. Houston additionally wrestled and competed in track and field.

Running back James Peoples from San Antonio committed back in April of 2023. Peoples’ field vision and ability to break through tackles is the reason why Ohio State football fans should be happy to gain him. He was also on the All-American Bowl roster, People’s was always an option at Veterans Memorial High School. Also as no surprise he ran track and field, he ran a 15.81 110-meter hurdles and long jumped 21-3.75.

Five-star recruit Aaron Scott is from Springfield Ohio and he is a lockdown corner. He had 21 tackles and 5 interceptions, returning 2 of them for TDS. Scott even visited Michigan just 14 days before he committed to the Buckeyes. He also plays basketball and track and field. He played in the Under Armour All-America Game. Scott is a very talented corner who will provide to Ohio State’s defense in the coming years.
