Buckeyes Shaun Wade, Wyatt Davis return to practice at Ohio State
Despite declaring for the NFL Draft earlier this month, both cornerback Shaun Wade and offensive lineman Wyatt Davis are back with Ohio State and practicing. Photos shared on social media indicated that the two future NFL stars have returned to the practice field in Columbus.
Davis was the first player to opt out of the 2020 season, doing so when it appeared the B1G was punting on the fall and would attempt to play again in the spring. Wade made the same decision shortly after his teammate, citing a lack of communication from the conference regarding the future of a football season.
Now, with the season reinstated, both are returning to the Buckeyes roster in an attempt to lead Ohio State to a fourth-straight B1G title and a second national championship in the College Football Playoff era.

Having both players return to the roster is huge for the Buckeyes on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Wade is considered a future first-round selection in the NFL Draft and perceived to be the top cornerback in the B1G.
Davis receives similar praise as an offensive lineman, a potential first-round pick and considered to be one of the best linemen in all of college football.
Ohio State is preparing to open its season on Oct. 24 against Nebraska.
