Fort Lauderdale's Nick Bosa leaving Ohio State to prepare for NFL

Nick Bosa Ohio State Football Buckeyes

"I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program", Meyer said.

The defensive end, who has been sidelined since mid-September with a core muscle injury, has made a decision to not return to the team and has withdrawn from Ohio State so he can focus on being healthy for the 2019 NFL Draft.

"There's time frames for injuries, and then time frames for an elite pass-rusher".

Ohio State, meanwhile, is now undefeated and preparing for an October 20 meeting with the Purdue Boilermakers at Ohio Stadium.

When taking that variable into effect, Bosa's season ended on September 15 regardless of his likelihood as the No. 1 pick looming. "It's not about rehabbing so you can be back on the used auto lot or be a mechanic", he told SI.com. The Buckeyes have not been able to run the ball efficiently or to their standards this season and part of that is due to teams loading the box and not respecting Dwayne Haskins on the read-option plays, but the other issue is the offensive line is not getting any push. Now that he'll join his brother Joey Bosa in the National Football League, one teammate on Ohio State left a parting message.


Bosa racked up four sacks, recovered a fumble for a touchdown and forced a fumble returned for a touchdown by a teammate in three games to start the season.

"It's hard on him", Bosa's father told Sports Illustrated Tuesday.

The injury is not expected to impact Bosa's draft status, and the decision to withdraw from school to focus on his rehab reduces the risk of aggravating the injury and potentially hurting his draft stock. His father, John Bosa, was a first-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 1987.

The Ohio State defense has given up big plays and excessive yardage all year, but in the second half they have found ways to not surrender many points.

"This just happened. We're still debating on how to do it", he said.
