Justin Fields, Shaun Wade and Wyatt Davis Earn Preseason AP All-American Honors

Even though they won't be playing this fall, the Buckeyes are represented by a few preseason All-Americans.

Justin Fields, Shaun Wade and Wyatt Davis were each named to the Associated Press' preseason All-American teams with Davis and Wade earning first-team honors and Fields checking in on the second-team, behind Trevor Lawrence.

Despite the postponed fall season, Fields, Davis and Wade are all potential first-round picks ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. The trio was also named preseason All-Americans by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Davis earned first-team All-American honors last season from multiple selectors including the Associated Press and Sporting News and is widely considered to be the best returning guard in college football.

Fields was also a second-team Walter Camp All-American last season and is a reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and a 2019 Heisman finalist.

Wade was only a third-team All-Big Ten selection last season, but is widely recognized as one of the best cornerbacks in the country and was set to be the star of Ohio State's secondary following the departures of Jeff Okudah, Damon Arnette and Jordan Fuller.

With Ohio State's future up in the air and the fate of a spring season uncertain, it's not clear which – if any – of these players will suit up for the Buckeyes again before heading to the next level.
