Julian Fleming is hoping to get on the field in Ohio State’s opener vs. Notre Dame Saturday night, but that may not happen.

The talented wide receiver will be a game-time decision, according to 11W’s Griffin Strom.

Emeka Egbuka would likely start in place of Fleming if he can’t go.  Marvin Harrison Jr. lined up opposite of Fleming during preseason camp as the other starter. The Buckeyes are loaded at wide receiver.

Fleming arrived at Ohio State as the nation’s No. 3 overall prospect and the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings, in the class of 2020. However, injuries have suppressed Fleming’s production since he get-go.

During last season’s sophomore campaign, Fleming caught 12 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Those number should improve this year as long as he’s healthy.
