  Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson is skipping the Rose Bowl to enter the NFL draft. Wide receiver Chris Olave, offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere and defensive tackle Haskell Garrett are also bypassing the game, coach Ryan Day said during the Buckeyes' visit to Disneyland to celebrate their New Year's Day showdown against Pac-12 champion Utah. "Certainly love those guys and appreciate everything they've done for the program, but the guys have had a good month of practice and we're gonna go forward with the guys that we have," Day said. Wilson made the announcement Monday in a statement on Twitter. "This journey has been a lifetime in the making and after careful consideration, today, I am excited to start the next chapter by declaring for the NFL Draft," Wilson wrote.

Wilson, a 6-foot, 192-pound junior, is regarded as a potential first-round selection. He had 70 receptions for 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns, ranking second on the team in each category for the potent Buckeyes passing attack. He caught 23 touchdowns in his three seasons at Ohio State. Olave returned for his senior season in hopes of helping No. 7 Ohio State (No. 6 CFP) win the national title, but those aspirations ended with the 42-27 rivalry game loss to Michigan. Day said Olave is with the team in Southern California and even went through practice on Monday. - AP College Football

  A Miamisburg state legislator is proposing a bill making it legal - for the first time in history - for Ohio's college athletes to earn money from their name, image and likeness, regardless of what NCAA rules say. Such opportunities could include sponsorships, endorsements, social media influencing, private lessons and autograph sessions, under the bill proposed by Republican state Sen. Niraj Antani. A bedrock of the NCAA's amateurism identity has been that its athletes do not profit financially from their status as athletes. Momentum for reform has been building for years, though, and similar bills already passed in other states - coupled with the inaction of the NCAA - forced the hand of Ohio and other states that could be left behind.

Antani expressed confidence the bill will pass despite the fast six-week timetable for its effective date of July 1. That date is not coincidental. Five other states - including some with college football powerhouses - have name, image and likeness laws set to take effect on July 1. Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and New Mexico have already passed laws that take effect that date. A bill making its way through the Texas state legislature could also go into effect on that date. Other states that passed laws that go into effect later are reportedly considering moving up their effective dates as well. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Wilson left a memorable impression on NFL talent evaluators while catching passes from Fields at the passer's first pro-day workout in March. In one particularly acrobatic grab on the sideline, he leapt in the air to snag the ball, keeping both feet in bounds. It was a sequence that replayed often on ESPN and the NFL Network in the workout's aftermath. Those ball skills and leaping ability are expected to make Wilson arguably the most coveted prospect from Ohio State in next year's class, provided he enters the draft following his junior season. Through two seasons with the Buckeyes, the 6-foot receiver has caught 73 passes for 1,155 yards and 11 touchdowns and made his share of plays in the slot and outside, where he will line up this fall. - Columbus Dispatch

  Goodbye, Garrett Wilson, slot receiver. It was a fun year. But this season might provide an even better pass-catching party. The announcement a year ago that the Buckeyes' five-star sophomore receiver was moving inside to create mismatches and greater explosion opportunities out of the slot was a shot of football adrenaline. Wilson could work over slot corners, safeties and linebackers, offering reliable third-down hands coupled with a constant big-play touchdown threat.

A highlight search offered a reminder of Wilson lining up a yard off the left tackle, matched on an Indiana linebacker, getting past him in seven steps, turning back to catch on his hip a Justin Fields pass that was slightly behind him and that was an easy 65-yard gain. "I think his ability to catch the ball, put it away, run after the catch so quickly is something you want out of a slot receiver," Ryan Day last March, and I wrote about the move as if the Buckeyes had just invented the forward pass. Wilson was named first-team All-Big Ten and second-team All-American, while providing a new package of speed, hands and route-running that the Buckeyes hadn't really seen in the slot before, at least not to that level. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  2020 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State,...At the wide receiver position, sophomore Garrett Wilson and junior Chris Olave were both first team picks by the coaches. Wilson and Olave are the only teammates in the country who are each averaging better than 100 yards receiving per game. Wilson leads the league with 114.4 yards/game while Olave is second at 105.6. They have combined for 70 receptions, 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns. - Ohio State Football

  The last time and Ohio State football receiver produced five straight 100-yard games, that player became a consensus All-American. Cris Carter achieved that feat in 1986, prior to an NFL career that led him to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. After another big performance against Indiana, Garrett Wilson is one more 100-yard game shy of matching Wilson's record. Time will tell if he also earns that national recognition, but his breakout sophomore season will certainly include some accolades. A small one came Sunday, when Wilson shared Offensive Player of the Game honors with senior tight end Luke Farrell. Wilson totaled 169 yards and two touchdowns on seven receptions. His 31 receptions and 513 yards lead the Buckeyes, and his four touchdown receptions are tied with Chis Olave for the team lead. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  To learn his new role in the Buckeyes offense, Wilson spent much of his time studying film of defenses. He expected that a broader base of knowledge might allow him to more easily identify holes in an opponent's secondary. "There's definitely a lot more film to go with it, just understanding coverages," Wilson said. "It's a lot less 1-on-1 routes and a lot more finding zones, stuff like that. Being able to read coverages and identify that before the play starts - you might say that's a lot of the things that I have to work on to get better. So I've been working on it." It also helped to watch K.J. Hill last season.

Hill was a consistent pass-catching threat for the Buckeyes and left as their career leader in receptions. "That was huge for me to learn from him," Wilson said. "He's as good of a slot as it gets." The Buckeyes hope Wilson can present himself as a capable replacement. Lining up in the slot, he offers natural playmaking ability that was seen as a freshman when he caught 30 passes for 432 and five touchdowns. "It provides a game-plan advantage for us," Hartline said. Hartline raised a few examples. A linebacker might not be fast enough to cover Wilson. A nickel corner is likely to be smaller in size too, allowing him to be an effective run blocker. But it will require Wilson to continue to learn the finer points of the position. - Columbus Dispatch

  Garrett Wilson will take over K.J. Hill's position in Ohio State football's offense when he lines up in the slot this season. To successfully follow in the footsteps of the Buckeyes' all-time leading receiver, he also wants to step into Hill's brain. Ohio State coach Ryan Day's revelation last spring about Wilson's transition from outside to inside created a stir. One could easily see why it excited Day as well. Wilson opened the 2019 season with glimpses of his promise. By the end of it he was making acrobatic catches in the first quarter of the College Football Playoff semifinal. Yet Wilson recognized the switch to the slot involved more than simply lining up closer to his quarterback.

"It's a whole different position, all the intricacies of playing the slot," Wilson said. "I feel like I'm getting used to it every day. I'm just worried about getting better every day at the position, understanding coverages, stuff like that. I'm definitely excited to be in the slot - be a little bit more involved." No receiver has ever been more involved than Hill over the balance of his Ohio State career. He finished with 201 receptions, taking over the career lead during the Big Ten championship game victory over Wisconsin. Physically, the roster measurements say Hill and Wilson are essentially the same - both right around 6-foot, 195 pounds. Wilson, however, was immediately asked to do more athletically as an outside receiver, and he responded. Receives coach Brian Hartline's word is "dynamic," shorthand for having no shortage of ways to get him the ball. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Garrett Wilson is moving into the slot in his second year as an Ohio State football wide receiver. He spent his freshman season rotating with Binjimen Victor outside, where he caught 30 passes for 432 yards and five touchdowns. Wide receiver coach Brian Hartline stated that he always envisioned Wilson's skill set as a match for the slot. With K.J. Hill gone, the opportunity opened up.

His move may not be permanent should Chris Olave declare for the draft after the season. Top 100 wide receivers Mookie Cooper and Jaxon Smith-Njigba will have a college year under their belt and can man that spot if needed. Wilson could join Jullian Fleming, Gee Scott Jr. and Jameson Williams as outside threats. With Ryan Day calling plays, Wilson's third season could mirror the improvements superstar wide receivers display with added NFL experience. He'll be dangerous no matter where he lines up. - Cleveland Plain Dealer
