COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State football kicks off the new year with a full roster for the 2022 season.
Some pending decisions for the upcoming NFL Draft – and some potential roster attrition by late spring – will determine how much leeway the Buckeyes have to add more players for this fall.
The addition of Tanner McCalister as a transfer brought the total player count to 87. This does not include players who have been in the NFL Draft before, such as Chris Olave, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Tyreke Smith and Garrett Wilson. This includes those who have yet to announce their draft plans, such as Sevyn Banks and Zach Harrison.
Ohio State’s 2022 class stands at 20 after Omari Abor and Carson Hinzman post-signing commitments. More players could join next week. According to NCAA rule, teams must be reduced to 85 stock players by the start of the 2022 season. For the spring, only the first 10 known registrants will count towards this stock exchange number.
However, this does mean that the state of Ohio must be selective when deciding to add more players through the transfer portal.
Here is the latest update:
Second year : 26
First year students: 31
Commitments 2023: 2
2024 commitments: 0
