Ohio State's Haskell Garrett, left, scores against Michigan State's Tre Mosley after deflecting and catching a Michigan State pass in the end zone during the first half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020, in East Lansing, Mich.

Defensive tackle Haskell Garrett announced Tuesday that he will use an additional year of eligibility and return to Ohio State this season.

Garrett made the announcement in a video posted to his Twitter account.

He said after a lot of prayer and conversations with his family, he decided to return to Columbus.

Garrett is able to return to the Buckeyes after the NCAA gave an extra year of eligibility to all student-athletes because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Garrett is joined by Thayer Munford, Jeremy Ruckert, Chris Olave, Tyreke Smith and Antwuan Jackson in coming back this fall.
