Ohio State is officially at 86 scholarship players, which means the Buckeyes must shed at least one player before facing Oregon State on Sept. 1.
Dublin Coffin Football, however, reports the Buckeyes have also made former Shamrock receiver C.J. Saunders a scholarship player.
Congrats to former Rock, CJ Saunders - just got put on scholarship for the Buckeyes! Just goes to show it's how you finish and not how you start. Good luck young man. Well deserved, you earned it! pic.twitter.com/OGeiYH9eLl— Dublin Coffman (@coffmanfootball) April 28, 2018
An Ohio State spokesman did not immediately respond to Eleven Warriors' request for confirmation.
Saunders' scholarship would bring the Buckeyes to 87 scholarships, which means there are at least two Buckeyes currently on scholarship that won't be with the team in four months.
