Ohio State unanimous All-American offensive guard Wyatt Davis has played his final snaps in Columbus. The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco former five-star prospect announced on his Twitter account that he had entered his name into the 2021 NFL Draft on Monday afternoon.

Davis was a two-year starter for Ohio State at right guard, starting 24 games in total (two in 2018, 14 in 2019 and eight in 2020). His contributions on the interior of the Buckeye line helped spark a 2,000-yard rushing season for halfback J.K. Dobbins in 2019 and one of the best rushing attacks in America in 2020.

The redshirt junior nearly didn’t play his final season for the Buckeyes in 2020. After the Big Ten announced that it wouldn’t be playing a fall football season because of the coronavirus pandemic, Davis declared for the NFL draft. However, once the conference decided to return, Davis followed suit, expressing his desire to play for the Buckeyes again.

“I was incredibly happy to learn today about the Big Ten’s decision to play football this fall,” Davis said on Twitter. “… I want Buckeye Nation to know that I want to play this season for Ohio State, and I am working now to make that a reality.”
