Harrison became the first Buckeye wide receiver to earn unanimous All-American status amid a breakout 2022 campaign that saw him haul in 77 passes for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns. Harrison was also the first Buckeye to win the Big Ten's Richter–Howard Receiver of the Year award and was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award.
Eichenberg raked in first- and second-team All-American honors from a host of organizations this past season, during which he led the Buckeyes with 120 total tackles and 12 tackles for loss. Eichenberg also made 2.5 sacks and returned an interception for a touchdown in 2022.
Egbuka was second only to Harrison on the Buckeye roster in receptions (74), receiving yards (1,151) and receiving touchdowns (10) in his second year in the program. Egbuka also had 11 rush attempts for 87 yards and a pair of scores.
