Ohio State has made a change to the three players representing the program at Big Ten media days this week. Instead of Chris Olave making the trip, he has been replaced by tight end, Jeremy Ruckert. OSU’s presumed No. 1 tight end will now join Thayer Munford and Zach Harrison in Indianapolis on Friday.

There was no reason given for the move, but according to an athletic department spokesman that spoke with Eleven Warriors, there are “no issues and everything is good.” The spokesman also pointed to the fact that Olave was at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center for team photos on Tuesday morning.

The trio of Buckeyes’ slot at the media days event is scheduled for Friday from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. That will be after Ryan Day’s press conference set for 12:30-12:45 p.m. He will also have another media availability session from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
