COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Ohio State University announced defensive end Nick Bosa intends to withdraw from school to focus on rehabilitation and training efforts.

According to a release from the school, Bosa, a junior, made the decision earlier this week after he injured a core muscle during the TCU game.

“I was hopeful that Nick would be able to return to play again for us,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. “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.”   

Bosa is expected to be a top pick in next year’s NFL draft.

Bosa was dominant in his three starts this season for the Buckeyes. His 6.0 tackles-for-loss, totaling 43 yards, ranked 10th nationally at the time and were accumulated in only about three halves of football.

His four quarterback sacks – third-most nationally through Week three – included a strip sack of TCU quarterback Shawn Robinson that resulted in a fumble and an Ohio State touchdown in the hard-fought win. He also had recovered two fumbles, one for a touchdown against Oregon State.
