Ohio State HC Urban Meyer announced Thursday that DE Joey Bosa will declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, per JJ Stankevitz.
The expectation all along was that Bosa would turn pro after his junior season, seeing as many draft experts have pegged him as a top-five draft pick who could go as high as No. 1 overall.
During his three years at Ohio State, Bosa appeared in 37 games and recorded 144 tackles, 26 sacks, an interception, five forced fumbles, two recoveries and six pass defenses for OSU. He still has one game left, as the Buckeyes will take on Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl.
