We’ve been waiting on further news about Nick Bosa, and it now appears as though he’s played his last game in Columbus per reports.
Nick Bosa’s playing career is apparently over at Ohio State.
That’s according to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, who broke the news via his Twitter account Tuesday. May sites sources that have told him and colleague Bill Rabinowitz that Bosa will focus on getting healthy and ready for the upcoming NFL Draft rather than try and return to Ohio State for a run at a division, league and potential national title.
Ohio State also released a statement today confirming the decision and Bosa’s decision to withdrawal completely from school at OSU. In that statement, Urban Meyer thanked the All-American for his time at Ohio State and wished him well.
“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.”
It was already reported that Bosa would be out until at least November with a core muscle injury and subsequent surgery.
Though the news has to be disappointing for Buckeye fans and coaches, it’s tough to blame Bosa who might be rushing himself back just to play at the collegiate level in lieu of taking his time to rehab and be right for a potential lucrative career at the next level.
Here at Buckeye Wire, we hinted at this before, and now it seems to be a reality. Onward and upward as they say for Ohio State who must now move on without arguably the most feared pass rusher in all of college football.
