There’s no surer sign that football season is around the corner than Ohio State beat writers standing outside a hotel to watch players walk in.

As has become an annual rite of passage on the Ohio State beat, members of the media assembled outside the team’s hotel on Sunday evening as the Buckeyes arrived to begin their two weeks of living together as a team during preseason camp.

Ohio State players have come to embrace the tradition as well by wearing clever T-shirts and other creative outfits for their paparazzi shots, and Eleven Warriors was on hand to document the best looks.

Buckeye offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. paid tribute to former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins:

Wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba showed support for his brother, MLB player Canaan Smith-Njigba, by wearing his Pittsburgh Pirates jersey:

Offensive lineman Toby Wilson and tight end Zak Herbstreit arrived in style:

Indiana native Josh Fryar had a clever T-shirt paying homage to one of the Hoosier State’s favorite sons:

Cade Stover advertised the family business:

And Marvin Harrison Jr. sped past the cameras:
