Nick Bosa will not return to Ohio State this season

Nick Bosa will not return to Ohio State this season

The All-American will now presumably begin preparing for the 2019 National Football League draft. Bosa met with Meyer and members of the Buckeyes staff over the weekend to inform them of the decision.

The news is a blow for the No. 2 ranked Ohio State squad, but not altogether unexpected following Bosa's injury. He underwent surgery on September 20.

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.

Ohio State star defensive end Nick Bosa will not return from injury to play for the Buckeyes this season and instead plans to focus on preparing for the 2019 NFL Draft once he is cleared medically, the university announced.

Why climate change means beer could become more scarce
Beer is the most commonly imbibed alcoholic beverage in the world, and reductions in brewing would inevitably affect prices. Volume declined 0.4 percent, while dollar sales rose 1.2 percent, led by imports, craft beer and domestic super premiums.

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

Already No. 1 on ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.'s list of best available draft-eligible prospects, Bosa's decision to forgo a comeback attempt this year or return for his final season of eligibility stands to reason.

"He is a first-class young man who we have been honored to coach", the statement reads in part.

As for filling the void, Chase Young and Jonathon Cooper have played well as Ohio State's starting defensive ends, and former tackle Jashon Cornell has seen increased time in recent weeks, including a start last week when Cooper was in concussion protocol. Bosa had three sacks through three games this season, a number that still stands as second-best on the defense.
