Nick Bosa not returning to OSU to focus on NFL Draft

Nick Bosa had surgery on September 20 in Philadelphia, and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said at the time that the Buckeyes hoped Bosa could return this season.

Sources told the Columbus Dispatch that Bosa met with coach Urban Meyer on Sunday to tell him that he and his family had decided Bosa would not be playing for the team again this season.

He planned to follow the same path as his older brother, Joey, who also played for St. Thomas and left Ohio State a year early.

The expectation from Ohio State, at least as voiced publicly, remained that Bosa would come back at some point.

Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa has not played since he suffered a groin injury against TCU last month, and he has apparently played his last game with the Buckeyes.

No. 2 Ohio State made the announcement on Tuesday.

"I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program", Meyer said. But given how much he resembles older brother Joey, a former Buckeye who started tearing it up in the National Football League off the edge as soon as he arrived, it's hard to argue with the logic behind today's news.

Nick Bosa had tied his career high of five tackles twice in the first three games this season, and he was leading the team in tackles with 14, including six for losses.

Before Bosa's injury, he was projected to be, at the very least, a top-three pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, if not the No. 1 overall selection. "He is a first-class young man who we have been honored to coach".
