The return of Lewis, who will be a fifth-year senior, means the Buckeyes will return their entire defense line. Sam Hubbard announced after the 31-0 loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31 he will be back. Jalyn Holmes, Dre’Mont Jones, Michael Hill, Davon Hamilton, Nick Bosa and Robert Landers will also return. All were part of a deep defensive line rotation.
The list of Ohio State players who are leaving, however, is a long one.
