Nick Bosa reportedly healthy and planning to participate in the NFL Draft combine
Ohio State Buckeyes defensive end Nick Bosa says that he is 100 percent healthy and will be a full participant at the NFL Scouting Combine in a few weeks.
Bosa played in just three games during the 2018 NCAA campaign after undergoing core muscle surgery in September.
“It was definitely one of the harder things I’ve went through in my life, just getting injured in the year that I was getting ready to blow it all out and have a really fun year,” Bosa told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “But it’s past me now and I have to look forward.”
Bosa’s father, John, feels that his son is ready to go.
“If there’s anything he feels he’d like to re-test, then he’ll go to the Ohio State pro day and re-rest there,” said John. “But I’m pretty sure he’s going to be pleased with everything he does at the combine. His training was a combination of rehab and training. Health-wise, as of about three weeks ago, now it’s 100 percent training for the combine. So he’s 100 percent healthy and ready to go.”
Bosa, who is expected to be one of the first players off the board in the NFL Draft in April, took some criticism for not returning to the Buckeyes after surgery, but he says those close to him understood his decision.
“The people I really care about understood,” Bosa said. “But obviously there were some people who had issues, but that’s fine. I love all my guys at Ohio State, and they all understood what I had to do for myself. The players are all on the same page.”
The Fort Lauderdale, Fl. native spent three years at Ohio State.
