Redshirt senior wide receiver Parris Campbell, redshirt junior defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones and senior right tackle Isaiah Prince will be Ohio State's three player representatives at next week's Big Ten Media Days.
Campbell is coming off a 2017 season in which he led Ohio State with 584 receiving yards, and he is expected to be a crucial leader for the Buckeyes both on and off the field this season.
Jones is entering his third season as a starting defensive tackle for the Buckeyes, and is expected to be one of the team's top leaders on that side of the ball.
Prince is entering his third season as Ohio State's starting right tackle, moving him into a leadership role on the Buckeyes' offensive line.
Being selected to represent the team at Big Ten Media Days is typically a sign that a player is among the team's most highly regarded leaders, and often foreshadows some of the players who will be selected as captains. Billy Price, Tyquan Lewis and Chris Worley represented the Buckeyes in Chicago in 2017.
The Big Ten announced the full list of players who will be attending Media Days on Monday, with other notable players including Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley, Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke, Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich and two quarterbacks – David Blough and Elijah Sindelar – for Purdue.
