    Hell yes, this is huge! Really needed Hill back to lead our receivers with all the graduations at the position. So glad he is coming back.

    Again, speaks to people flocking to Coach Day and respecting/believing whatever he is selling.

    That brotherhood and culture in the WHAC is real and it is strong.

    Great point. The staff decisions, retention of commitments, and guys opting to stay at OSU all speaks to the confidence in Day. Really reassuring to see.

    Best possession receiver returning to the collegiate ranks next season, and it isn’t even close. KJ could very easily find himself getting drafted top 20-25 in the 2020 draft.

    As he made his decision of whether he should enter the 2019 NFL draft or stay at Ohio State for his fifth-year senior season, K.J. Hill had plenty of people he could turn to for guidance.

    Three of his fellow Ohio State wide receivers – Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin – had to make the same decision one year earlier. All of them gave consideration to entering the 2018 NFL draft before deciding to return to the Buckeyes for their fifth-year senior seasons.

    Like his teammate Damon Arnette, Hill also consulted with former Ohio State wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinee Cris Carter before making his decision.

    Campbell, Dixon and McLaurin all had their best seasons of their respective careers after individually deciding to stay at Ohio State for one final year, so they could certainly draw from their own experiences to sell Hill on the benefits of staying. That said, Hill has already been highly productive the past two seasons – catching 68 passes for 865 yards for six touchdowns in 2018 after catching 56 passes for 549 yards and three touchdowns in 2017 – so they recognized that he was in a different spot than they were in last year.

    “They said my decision here was way tougher than theirs,” Hill recalled of his conversations with last year’s senior receivers. “So I talked to them about it, and they wished me the best of luck.”

    Carter, on the other hand, knows that a player can be successful in the NFL even if he leaves Ohio State earlier than he should. He became one of the NFL’s best receivers ever, ranking fourth in league history in receiving touchdowns and sixth in receptions, after being ruled ineligible for his senior season at Ohio State and entering the 1987 supplemental draft. Yet it was Carter, perhaps more than anyone else, who sold Hill on the idea that he would be more likely to regret leaving early than he would staying for one more year.

    “I talked to him for a long time on the phone when I was back home,” Hill said. “We was just talking a little bit about how it’s just once-in-a-lifetime. You’re here at Ohio State, and once you leave, you’re going to miss it.”
