The injured All-American intends to withdraw from school to spend time rehabilitating and training for an National Football League career.

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.

"For Nick it was very hard to come to the realization that it was over" at Ohio State, John Bosa said.

Ohio State makes it official: Nick Bosa, the possible No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, is withdrawing from school.

No. 2 Ohio State made the announcement on Tuesday.

Bosa, who had surgery September 20 and has yet to be cleared to play, is the younger brother of San Diego Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, who also starred at Ohio State and was the third overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft.

It took no time for #BlackTwitter to come to T.I.'s defense and denounce Grisham's response as hypocrisy. Grisham has plenty of experience defending the first lady against negative portrayals in media.

Ohio State's defense hasn't been the same since Bosa's departure.

"I was hopeful", Meyer said Tuesday on the Big Ten teleconference, "but I can't say I was that surprised".

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. I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program.

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.

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