As we predicted, Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa is going to forego the rest of his college football career and prepare for the NFL.

Ohio State made an official release on the subject Tuesday morning.

Bosa was injured in the big game against TCU and subsequently underwent surgery to repair a core muscle.

His father said afterward that he’d be out until at least November, when he would be re-evaluated by his surgeon.

One of the most dominant players at any position in college football, Bosa was a force before his injury this year. He had four sacks and six tackles for a loss in three games and figures to be one of the first — if not the first — players taken off the board during the 2019 NFL Draft.
