While we're still nearly three months away from the scheduled start of the 2020 college football season, three Ohio State players have already been recognized among the nation's best players at their position.
Ohio State right guard Wyatt Davis was selected as a first-team preseason All-American while quarterback Justin Fields and cornerback Shaun Wade were selected as second-team preseason All-Americans by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, one of the five voting bodies that determines consensus All-Americans at the end of the season.
Davis, who already earned first-team All-American honors last season from multiple selectors including the Associated Press and Sporting News, is widely considered to be the best returning guard in college football going into 2020. He was a second-team Walter Camp All-American in 2019.
Fields was also a second-team Walter Camp All-American last season, but comes in behind Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence in this year's preseason honors. The reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and a 2019 Heisman finalist, Fields is considered a co-favorite for this year's Heisman along with Lawrence.
Wade was only a third-team All-Big Ten selection last season, but he's widely recognized as one of the best cornerbacks in the country and is now set to be the star of Ohio State's secondary following the departures of Jeff Okudah, Damon Arnette and Jordan Fuller. If Wade plays up to his potential in 2020 while moving to the outside cornerback position, he's more than capable of following in Okudah's footsteps and earning first-team All-American honors this fall.
