The Dispatch added that Nick Bosa told Meyer and some of his staff of his decision on Sunday.
The presumption is Bosa, a junior, will forgo his final season at Ohio State to enter the National Football League draft.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced Tuesday that Bosa - a projected top 3 pick - will focus on preparing for the National Football League draft rather than return to the Ohio State program.
Bosa had surgery to fix an abdominal/groin injury in late September.
John Bosa said he and Nick were on their way to Philadelphia on Tuesday to get a recovery assessment from the surgeon who made the fix, Dr. William Meyers of the Vincera Institute. He is set to be reevaluated in November, but will focus on preparing for the NFL Draft instead of rejoining the Buckeyes.
Jose Mourinho: Manchester United manager charged by FA for Newcastle comments
The English Football Association has charged Jose Mourinho for using bad language into a TV camera after a Manchester United game. The problem with Hazard, and I'm a massive fan of his, is that he can go missing for six months at a time.
Already No. 1 on ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.'s list of best available draft-eligible prospects, Bosa's decision to forgo a comeback attempt this year or return for his final season of eligibility stands to reason.
Ohio State will be without star defensive end Nick Bosa for the rest of the season.
This was how current and former Buckeyes reacted. To put that in perspective from a financial standpoint, the top three picks from the 2018 draft signed contracts worth $30 million or more. I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program. This decision likely ensures Bosa continues on that type of.
Bosa racked up four sacks, recovered a fumble for a touchdown and forced a fumble returned for a touchdown by a teammate in three games to start the season.
