A non-football injury means A.J. Alexander‘s playing days are over, at least at Ohio State.
In June, it was confirmed that Alexander would miss the entire 2017 season because of an unspecified knee injury that needed surgery to repair. It was subsequently reported that the tight end suffered the injury playing basketball earlier in the month.
Tuesday, the Buckeyes announced that Alexander’s career at OSU is over because of the injury he sustained over the summer. The redshirt sophomore will be placed on a medical scholarship so he can continue his schooling.
A three-star 2015 signee, Alexander took a redshirt as a true freshman. As the backup to starter Marcus Baugh in 2016, Alexander caught four passes for 27 yards.
