Ohio State junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan declared for the NFL draft Wednesday, making him the third Buckeye to leave school early for the pros.


Ohio State had plenty of holes to fill among its starting group entering the 2016 season and still made a run to the College Football Playoff.

Next season is shaping up to be that kind of year again.

Standout linebacker Raekwon McMillan confirmed Wednesday on Twitter that he will forego his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft. The announcement comes shortly after defensive backs Malik Hooker and Gareon Conley declared for the draft.

“Everyone around me molded me to become who I am today, that is why it was a difficult decision but I have chosen to forego my senior season and declare for the 2017 NFL Draft,” McMillan wrote. “Thank you for the incredible experience, I wish I could’ve got the job done for you Buckeyenation.”

The last line of his post is regarding Ohio State falling short of winning a national championship this season. Urban Meyer’s squad lost to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl, 31-0. McMillan was a true freshman when the Buckeyes won the national championship in 2014.

Few should be surprised by McMillan’s departure. He finished as the Buckeyes’ leading tackler each of the last two seasons and was named a second-team All-American this year, so it’s safe to say McMillan lived up to the hype after coming out of high school as a highly touted five-start prospect. Meyer said earlier this season that McMillan is “either 1A or 1B in terms of big signings that we’ve had.”

McMillan is regarded as one of the top linebacker prospects in the upcoming draft.
