COLUMBUS — Ohio State All-American cornerback Bradley Roby will forgo his senior season to enter the NFL Draft, coach Urban Meyer said today.
Meyer said Roby will be honored with the Buckeyes' 18 seniors before Saturday's home finale against Indiana.
Roby, a fourth-year junior who entertained leaving for the NFL after last season, is widely projected as a first or second round pick.
"We talked, and he's going to go and move on," Meyer said tonight. "That's all you ask. You don't ask for five years nowadays. ... It's no secret. There's nothing wrong with that. It's great for him, great for Ohio State."
