Ohio State's Wade opts back in after Big Ten announces return

Big Ten Halloween

Appearing on ESPN Sports Center earlier this evening cornerback Shaun Wade announced that he intends to return to Ohio State to play football this season.

Shaun Wade will be opting back in for the season since the conference has changed course with plans to return in late October, announced Thursday.

"Really, back in January, I didn't go to the draft and my goal was to come back, be a captain, get my degree", Wade said.

Fields, who transferred from Georgia before playing for Ohio State last season, is looking to give the Buckeyes a national championship after falling short against Lawrence and the Tigers previous year in the College Football Playoff semifinal. While the NCAA allows for communication with an agent, Wade may have to to go through a reinstatement process if he entered into any agreement with a representative. It remains to be seen whether the NCAA will rule him eligible to return.


Wade could have left Ohio State after last season, as he was projected as an early-round National Football League draft pick, but he returned for his senior season.

Remember that Wade is the cornerback that was ejected in the second quarter for targeting against Trevor Lawrence in the 2019 Playstation Fiesta Bowl.

"This has been an extremely hard decision to make, but I know it's the right decision for me", Wade said on September 14. He said that ejection and the outcome of that game factored into his decision to come back. "I gotta come back and do great things for the Buckeye Nation and just for my teammates".
