BREAKING: Nick Bosa Is Leaving Ohio State TO Focus On The 2019 NFL Draft

Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa has decided to leave school to concentrate on his rehabilitation before the NFL Draft, the school said in a statement on Tuesday.

The junior All-American suffered a core muscle injury in the third game of the season and underwent surgery in September.

Here’s what Ohio St. coach Urban Meyer said:

“I was hopeful that Nick would be able to return to play again for us, I know this was an extremely difficult and emotional decision for Nick and his family, and I wish him well as he moves on to get himself 100 percent healthy and ready for his next chapter. I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program. He is a first-class young man who we have been honored to coach.”

Bosa is the brother of Joey Bosa, who was also an All-America defensive lineman at Ohio State. He was taken with the No. 3 selection in the 2016 draft by the Chargers.
