Former Buckeye Noah Spence headed to NFL Draft

Former Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence revitalized his football career at Eastern Kentucky after being declared permanently ineligible by the Big Ten for multiple failed drug test, and now he’s taking his comeback to the next level.

According to Eleven Warriors, Spence will enter this year’s NFL Draft. Given how he finished this year with 22.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and three forced fumbles and was the Ohio Valley Conference’s co-Defensive Player of the Year, he should wind up getting selected depending on his performance at February’s NFL Scouting Combine.

Spence also discussed his time in Columbus in a personal statement which read as follows:

“I will also forever cherish my time spent at The Ohio State University,” Spence said.  “I wish things had turned out differently, but I’ve grown from my mistakes and have become a better person today because of them.  Thank you Coach (Urban) Meyer for your ongoing support and direction.  Buckeye Nation will always hold a special place in my heart, and I’m truly thankful for your continued support. Go Colonels!  And Go Bucks!”
