Binjimen Victor is staying at Ohio State for his senior season.
The Buckeyes' wide receiver, who was eligible to declare for the 2019 NFL draft, confirmed Monday on Twitter that he will be back at Ohio State for one more year.

It would have come as a surprise if Victor had chosen to declare for the draft, as he clearly has untapped potential. Victor has shown glimpses of his ability to make spectacular plays during his three seasons with the Buckeyes – most notably, Victor had a 47-yard catch-and-run that played a crucial role in their 27-26 win over Penn State this past season – but has been inconsistent, only catching 21 passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns in his junior year.
That said, Victor will have an opportunity to emerge as one of the leaders of Ohio State's receiving corps in 2019 with Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin, Johnnie Dixon and potentially K.J. Hill (who has yet to announce whether he will enter the NFL draft) departing from last season's roster. And if Victor can finally put it all together and make a leap in his production next season, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver from Pompano Beach, Florida, has the physical tools to potentially shoot up NFL draft boards.
