For the 2024 campaign, the Ohio State Buckeyes have kept another member of their roster.

Bryson Rogers, a rookie wide receiver for the Buckeyes, said on Saturday morning that he would be returning to the Scarlet and Gray and removing his name from the transfer portal.

“I appreciate all the coaches that blessed me with an opportunity to come to their program,” Rogers stated. “For me, this has not at all been easy. After giving it careful thought, Buckeye nation, I will be going back to The Ohio State University.”

Rogers is now one of three freshman receivers on whom the Buckeyes will look next season, alongside the veteran Emeka Egbuka. Along with Rogers, the other two returning first-years, Brandon Inniss and Carnell Tate, both have experience from this season.

Jeremiah Smith, a freshman, will also be joining Rogers in the upcoming season. Smith was the highest-ranked recruit in his class overall as well as the best recruit in the nation at his position.

But not all of the recent news has been positive for the Buckeyes. Marvin Harrison Jr., the leading receiver for Ohio State and a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, stated earlier this week that he will not be returning for his senior season, instead opting to enter the 2024 NFL Draft.

The addition of Rogers is welcomed and surprising news for the Buckeyes, as not many players elect to leave the transfer portal once their name has been entered.

One thing is for certain: Ohio State transfer quarterback Will Howard will have plenty of quality options to whom he can throw the ball next season.
