Three of Ohio State's most prominent players will represent the Buckeyes at Big Ten Media Days.

Chris Olave, Thayer Munford and Zach Harrison will be the three Ohio State players attending this week's Big Ten Media Days along with head coach Ryan Day.

Olave, a senior wide receiver, enters 2021 as the Buckeyes’ biggest star. He's already been named as a preseason All-American by multiple media outlets, and could be the top wide receiver in college football after choosing to stay at Ohio State for his senior year rather than enter the 2021 NFL draft.

Munford, a fifth-year senior offensive tackle, will be a fourth-year starter at left tackle for the Buckeyes this year. Also a preseason All-American selection, Munford is aiming to be the best offensive tackle in college football this year after opting to use his extra year of NCAA eligibility rather than enter the 2021 draft.

Harrison, a junior defensive end, is expected to be one of Ohio State's top defensive players this season. Although the five-star recruit has had a relatively quiet start to his career, he was singled out by Ryan Day as one of the team's leaders this spring (along with Munford) and has the potential to be the Buckeyes’ next star pass-rusher if he can be more consistent this fall.

Day, Harrison, Munford and Olave will all meet with the media on Friday, the second day of Big Ten Media Days, which are being held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this year. Day's press conference is scheduled for 12:30 p.m., the three players will meet with reporters from 1:15-2:15 p.m. and Day will have another media session from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

The full schedule for Big Ten Media Days and list of players attending can be found on the conference's website.
