We’re about to enter that season. No, it’s not summer or football season we’re talking about (well, maybe a little), but it’s about time for all the preseason watch lists and predictions to make the rounds for the upcoming college football season. Like them or leave them, it’s a sign that football is just around the corner.

And so it is with the release of the 2021 Walter Camp Preseason All-American teams that were just revealed Thursday. Ohio State seems to always have good representation on these things because the Buckeye program is pretty good at this whole American football thing, and that’s certainly the case heading into 2021 as well.

In fact, there are three OSU players listed on the team. You can probably take a guess at who they are, and there are some that probably could have made the cut as well. But at this point, the Walter Camp Foundation has identified the following three Ohio State players on the First Team. with none being named to the Second Team.
