After two of his teammates announced they would be leaving Ohio State early and entering the NFL Draft, running back Mike Weber posted a simple three-word message: One more year.

The redshirt sophomore made the post on Twitter Saturday night.

In 2016, Weber ran for more than 1,000 yards and was named freshman of the year by the Big Ten Conference.

Weber was sidelined with a hamstring injury to start the 2017 season which allowed J.K. Dobbins to become the team's top back, who broke Maurice Clarett’s school record for freshman rushing yards.

Weber finished the year with 636 yards and 10 touchdowns.
