- All returning players expect Young and Sotos still have an extra year of eligibility. Towns, Ahrens, Sueing, Jallow and Washington could still play two more seasons at Ohio State, Diallo and Liddell could still play three more and Key, Brown and Johnson could still play four more.
- Because Young and Sotos were seniors at Ohio State last year and are using the extra year of eligibility provided by the NCAA, they will not count against Ohio State's scholarship limit for the 2021-22 season.
- Liddell and Washington have both entered the 2021 NBA draft, but could still return to Ohio State.
