    Ohio State is loaded with talent once again this season, but much of it is unproven.

    The Buckeyes signed their two highest-rated recruiting classes of the modern era in 2017 and 2018, and with those players entering their second and third seasons respectively, it’s their time to make an impact – in many cases, for the first time.

    Here are 10 players who will be stepping into larger roles with the team and seem poised for breakout seasons in 2019.

    The only true freshman on this list, Garrett Wilson figures to be an instant impact for the Buckeyes this season.

    Wilson is the highest-rated wide receiver to ever sign with the Buckeyes, and he's drawn rave reviews in both spring and fall practice after enrolling early at Ohio State in January. He had four catches for 44 yards and an impressive touchdown reception in the spring game.

    With Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin gone, the door is open for Wilson to make an immediate impact in Ohio State's receiving corps this year.

    Garrett Wilson’s first game at Ohio State was a reminder that even with the hype that comes with being a five-star recruit, he's still just a true freshman.

    He didn’t catch a single pass in the Buckeyes’ season opener against FAU, and the only pass that hit his hands was one that he dropped behind the line of scrimmage, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by the opponent.

    In his second game as a Buckeye against Cincinnati on Saturday, however, Wilson needed only one catch to remind everyone why he’s been so hyped since he arrived at Ohio State.

    With a pass-rusher bearing down on him on 3rd-and-8, Justin Fields lofted a ball to the left side of the end zone, and Garrett Wilson leaped up to grab the ball over coverage from Cincinnati cornerback Coby Bryant – the younger brother of former Ohio State safety Christian Bryant – and pulled it down for a 9-yard touchdown reception.

    That catch, which was simultaneously the first reception and first touchdown of Wilson’s Ohio State career, was an impressive display of his ball skills that have talked about all offseason and that he also put on display with a similar catch in Ohio State’s spring game and throughout his high school career. But it certainly didn’t come as a surprise to his quarterback.

    “For me and Garrett, and I think everybody else on the team, they know that that’s not a circus catch for Garrett, that's pretty much routine for him,” Fields said. “So he definitely had my trust. He gained all that in the spring and just this summer. So when I saw that, I already knew he was going to catch the ball.”

    Ryan Day, who was previously a quarterbacks coach for the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers before he joined Ohio State’s coaching staff, was impressed by what he saw on both ends of that play.

    “That throw and catch there, that was NFL material right there,” Day said.

    Wilson looked as though he could be in line for a decreased role from the season opener, when he played 29 snaps, when Jaylen Harris rotated into the game at X receiver ahead of Wilson on the Buckeyes’ first possession. Both receivers ended up seeing their share of playing time throughout the game, though, in a rotation with starter Binjimen Victor.

    Biggest takeaway from today was #5 should be our punt returner. McCall doesn’t have the decisiveness needed for that spot, and it’s obvious at this point that the more we can get the ball in this kid’s hands, the better.
