One of the top linebackers in college football is set to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
On Wednesday, Ohio State star Raekwon McMillan announced his intentions to forgo his final year of eligibility to go pro.
McMillan announced his decision with a brief statement on Twitter.
“Everyone around me molded me to become who I am today, that is why it was a difficult decision but I have chosen to forgo my senior season and declare for the 2017 NFL Draft,” McMillan wrote.
“Thank you for the incredible experience, I wish we could have got the job done for you Buckeye Nation. Thank you, O-H.”
In 2016, McMillan recorded 102 total tackles, seven tackles for a loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles. He finishes his time in Columbus with 275 tackles, 18 tackles for a loss, six sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
McMillan is expected to be drafted within the first two days of April’s draft.
