Ohio State Football’s 2019-20 Roster

Jeffrey Okudah is no longer on Ohio State’s roster... but Jeff Okudah is!

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl Game-Ohio State vs Washington Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Most players who were looking to transfer already did so earlier this offseason, so Ohio State’s 2019-20 football roster is pretty much set as the team takes to the field for their first fall camp practice on Friday.

With Justin Fields, Gunnar Hoak, and Jonah Jackson joining the Buckeyes from other college programs (UGA, Kentucky, and Rutgers respectively), they give the roster a significant boost in experience, but true freshmen like Marcus Crowley, Zach Harrison, Dawand Jones, Harry Miller, Noah Potter, Garrett Wilson, and others are also looking to make an impression during camp.

While there are still plenty of position battles that will play out over the month of August — from offensive line to linebacker to the running back rotation — before we get too far into those, here’s a look at the current roster, which features a lot of new names from incoming freshman and transfers from last season.

You’ll also notice that last year’s breakout corner Jeffrey Okudah is no longer on the roster, but that is because he has made it clear that he would officially prefer to be called “Jeff Okudah” instead.

And, after the way he played last year, we’re willing to call him whatever he wants!
