Ohio State Buckeyes Football has Davis, Fields and Wade selected as Walter Camp Preseason All-Americans

Wyatt Davis earns a spot on the first team, Justin Fields and Shaun Wade on the second team

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three Ohio State Buckeyes were named to the Walter Camp Preseason All-America Team, announced on June 11 by The Walter Camp Football Foundation. Offensive guard Wyatt Davis made the fist team while quarterback Justin Fields and cornerback Shaun Wade were second team selections.

Wyatt Davis

 

Justin Fields

In all, 33 different schools from eight conferences are represented on the first and second teams with a total of 50 players selected.

 

 

Davis, from Bellflower, Calif., blossomed into one of the nation’s top interior linemen last season as a first-year starter. While paving the way for an offense that averaged 529.9 yards per game, Davis was voted a first team All-American by the Associated Press, CBS Sports and The Sporting News. He’s one of three returning starters along the offensive line for the 2020 Buckeyes.

 

Fields enjoyed one of the best statistical seasons in program history in 2019 as a first-year starter. The Kennesaw, Ga., native threw for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He accounted for 51 total touchdowns and became the first player in Big Ten history with 40 passing TDs and 10 rushing TDs in the same season. In addition to being the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year and Quarterback of the Year, Fields was also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

Shaun Lane

 

Wade, a rising fourth-year junior, is Ohio State’s most experienced returnee in the secondary, having played in 27 games over the last two seasons. A third team All-Big Ten selection in 2019, he had 26 tackles, four tackles-for-loss, one interception, two forced fumbles and eight pass breakups. As a redshirt freshman in 2018, he led the team with three interceptions.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Dillon Dingler, a junior on the Ohio State baseball team, was selected by the Detroit Tigers with the first pick of the second round of the 2020 Major League Baseball Draft Thursday afternoon. The North Canton, Ohio, native who was taken with the 38th overall pick, is the 107th Buckeye taken in the history of the Major League Baseball Draft and the 12th taken in the first or second round.

 

Dillon Dingler

Dingler is the highest Buckeye draft pick since Alex Wimmers went with the 21st pick of the opening round of the 2010 MLB Draft to the Minnesota Twins.

 

“I’m really excited for the future and to have the opportunity to put on the Tigers jersey,” Dingler said. “I was very fortunate to have a great baseball program in high school and then loved my time at Ohio State. The athletics program is second to none and has prepared me for this. I’ve been really fortunate to play for Coach Beals and to be a Buckeye.”

 

Named a Collegiate Baseball Third Team All-American, Dingler tied with Indiana’s Grant Richardson for the Big Ten lead with five home runs and his .760 slugging percentage ranked second in the conference and 23rd nationally in a shortened 2020 season. The two-time team captain hit all five of his long balls in the last five games, going 10-for-21 while adding two doubles, 11 RBI and eight runs scored. The three-time OSU Scholar-Athlete and two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection posted a 1.828 OPS in his last five games and was riding a team-best seven-game hitting streak.

 

For the year, the catcher led Buckeye regulars with a .340 (17-for-50) batting average to go along with a team-high four doubles, a triple, five home runs, 14 RBI and 12 runs scored. In the Buckeyes’ win at North Florida March 10, Dingler became the first Buckeye in three years to hit three long balls in one game. The game was named the No. 10 individual offensive performance of the season by Baseball America.

 

In his three-year career, Dingler has played in 115 games, hitting .276 with 21 doubles, four triples, 12 home runs, 74 RBI and 50 runs scored. The graduate of Massillon Jackson High School was named Second Team All-Big Ten and a member of the Big Ten All-Tournament Team as a sophomore and was selected as part of the Big Ten All-Freshman Team in 2018.
