Still waiting word on fate of B1G, OSU CB latest to opt out … There is still no official word this morning as to whether the Big Ten football season will in fact be moved back into the late fall. Conference presidents met yesterday to discuss the possibility of starting up their season as early as mid-October, but no decision was announced yesterday and those talks are expected to continue today. The Big Ten had pushed back all fall sports until the spring back in August, but with the SEC, ACC and Big XII going ahead, the conference has been under intense pressure to reconsider. If the Big Ten does in fact play this fall, it will be without another one of Ohio State’s top players. CB Shaun Wade, expected to be one of the first 2-3 players at the position off the board at the upcoming draft, announced this morning that he will forego his remaining eligibility and turn his attention toward preparing for the 2021 draft. Wade is considered to be a mid-first round prospect. Meanwhile, Texas A&M WR Jhamon Ausbon has also announced that he won’t play when the SEC kicks off its abbreviated schedule later this month. The 6-2, 225-pound Ausbon, the Aggies leading receiver last fall with 66 catches, figures to be a mid-to-late round prospect for the upcoming draft.
