Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa will not play for the Buckeyes again, instead turning his attention to rehabbing a core muscle injury and preparing for the 2019 NFL Draft, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

ESPN later added that Bosa will withdraw from the university.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer confirmed in a statement that Bosa considered one of the top NFL prospects for the Class of 2019 would not return to his program.

"I was hopeful that Nick would be able to return to play again for us," 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, who was a junior, hasn't played since Sept. 15 when he sustained the injury. He had 17.5 sacks in 29 collegiate games.

His older brother, Joey Bosa, was the third overall pick by the Los Angeles Chargers in the 2016 NFL Draft.
