It’s that time of year where talented collegiate football players are making their decisions as to whether or not that will be staying in school or opting for the NFL.
The latest news regarding an Ohio State player and his decision comes as a favorable one for the Buckeyes. Junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon announced on Twitter Thursday night that he will be staying with the team for his senior year.

As Dixon said, there is unfinished business. Two years ago, when the 5-foot-11 pass-catcher caught 6 passes for 26 yards, Ohio State made it to the college football semifinal game and lost to Clemson, 31-0.
This past season, the Buckeyes missed out of the College Football Playoff entirely, being ranked No. 5 in the final poll leading up to the playoff itself. Dixon caught 18 passes this past season, which marked a career high, as well as his 8 touchdowns.
Dixon hadn’t scored prior to the 2017 season. His eight receiving scores marked a team-high for the Buckeyes.
