Another day, another Ohio State Buckeyes player heading to the NFL Draft a year early. Wide receiver Jalin Marshall announced his decision to leave Columbus for the NFL today, leaving with two years of eligibility behind at Ohio State.
Marshall was Ohio State’s second-leading receiver in 2015 with 477 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games this past season. In addition to playing wide receiver, Marshall helped out on special teams for the Buckeyes as well. In the Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame, Marshall returned four punts for 73 yards. He ended the season with 379 punt return yards.
Marshall is the seventh Ohio State player to declare for the NFL Draft with a year of eligibility remaining. He joins Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, Cardale Jones, Darron Lee, Tyvis Powell and Eli Apple, who also declared on Monday. Ohio State managed to lose no underclassmen to the NFL Draft last year, coming off a national championship.
