Four of Ohio State's star players were named preseason All-Americans by the Associated Press on Monday.
Wide receiver Chris Olave and defensive tackle Haskell Garrett were both named first-team preseason AP All-Americans while wide receiver Garrett Wilson and offensive lineman Thayer Munford were each named second-team All-Americans.
Ohio State is one of eight schools with at least two first-team preseason AP All-Americans. Iowa State and Notre Dame each have three while Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma and Texas A&M also each have two.
Garrett earned second-team All-American honors from the AP for his performance during the 2020 season, while Olave and Wilson are expected to be two of college football's best receivers this year. Munford was selected as a second-team preseason All-American at tackle after starting at left tackle for Ohio State for the past three seasons, though he's expected to move inside to left guard – where he should still be an All-American candidate – this season.
