Nick Bosa will not return to Ohio State this season

Nick Bosa will not return to Ohio State this season

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been sidelined since mid-September with a core muscle injury, has made a decision to not return to the team and has withdrawn from Ohio State so he can focus on being healthy for the 2019 NFL Draft.

He has been replaced in the lineup by Chase Young, a sophomore who was one of the top 10 recruits in the country in the class of 2018.

"We love Nick. The Bosa family has been awesome for Ohio State and the program. He's very strong in his faith, he's very strong academically, so it was very emotional". The Buckeyes' next game is against Purdue on October 20. "Twelve weeks brings us into December". To John Bosa, that's not enough time for his son to recover.

"When is he able to be safe and play at the same level?"

In three games this season, Bosa had six tackles, four sacks and caused two fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown and the other which was returned for a touchdown by a teammate.

It makes sense from Bosa's perspective to make a decision like this given that he's already considered one of the top players to hit the National Football League next year, but this is obviously disappointing for all of Buckeye nation.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. now lists Bosa as his No. 1 prospect for the draft.

John Bosa, a former Miami Dolphin, is the father of Nick and Joey.

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. He is expected to be a first-round draft pick. It's just something you've got to deal with and move forward, just like early entries in the draft. "I think it's tough for everybody, including Nick", Schiano said of the decision.

Ohio State's defensive issues just became more concrete.
