Wyatt Davis hoping to reverse course, wants to opt back in for Buckeyes

COLUMBUS — Wyatt Davis returned to Ohio State in January for one last shot at a national title.

With the opportunity to compete for a title stripped by the conference last month amid a season cancelation, Davis made the tough decision last week to leave the Ohio State program and prepare for the NFL.

Now that the dream of a national title is alive again, the All-American guard and potential first-round draft pick is back in: Wyatt Davis is working to return to the Buckeyes.

Davis confirmed the intention of a reversal, which he hopes will lead to a return to the Buckeyes, in a post on Twitter.

“I was incredibly happy to learn today about the Big Ten’s decision to play football this fall. Thank you President Johnson, Mr. Smith, Dr. Borchers and to all who worked so hard for our safe return,” Davis wrote. “I want Buckeye Nation to know that I want to play this season for Ohio State and I’m working now to make that a reality.

“Thank you for the support. Go Buckeyes.”

An All-American at right guard for Ohio State last season, Wyatt Davis has a chance to become only the third two-time consensus All-American if he can continue his success from last year.

Davis, a fourth-year player from Bellflower, California, originally opted out of the Big Ten season last week, telling Lettermen Row that he made the decision due to a lack of communication from the league on a return-to-play option.

“With the season just getting pushed back and pushed back and no communication from the commissioner, my family and I just thought it was in our best interest to take the next step,” Davis told Lettermen Row last week. “It’s bittersweet. It’s tough. I came back to win a national championship, and to not have that chance now hurts.”

But now that the Big Ten is back on the field beginning Oct. 24, Davis has that chance to win a national title for the Buckeyes — what he originally came back to college to do.

Wyatt Davis is one of the best offensive lineman in the country. He’s planning on coming back to win a championship, and Ohio State’s chances of doing that just got better.
