Ohio State WR James Clark Not Returning To The Buckeyes

One of Ohio State's wide receivers will not be returning next season.

Ohio State wide receiver James Clark will not be returning to the Buckeyes' football team, the school announced on Monday.

Clark is graduating this spring and has elected to not return to the program.

From Ohio State:

Curtis Samuel and Noah Brown’s early entries into the NFL Draft leaves this group down its top two receivers from 2016. The duo combined for 106 receptions and 14 of the team’s 26 touchdown catches. James Clark has elected to graduate this spring, so he is also not returning. Hill, Victor and Mack were freshmen last year who have bright futures.

Clark was set to be a fifth-year senior during the 2017 season. He was a four-star recruit out of Florida in Ohio State's 2013 class. Clark finishes his Buckeye career with six catches for 47 yards.

Ohio State is now at 88 scholarship players for the 2017 season, three above the NCAA's limit. More change is coming.
