Ohio State center Josh Myers announced he will be leaving Columbus and entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

In a post on his Twitter account, Myers said playing for Ohio State has been the pleasure of his life.

"Ohio State will always hold an incredibly dear place in my heart, and I will undoubtedly miss it," Myers wrote.

He goes on to thank the EQ staff, athletic trainers, strength coaches and the coaching staff.

Myers had up to two years of eligibility left after the NCAA decided to give student-athletes an extra year due to the pandemic. 

Myers was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy and named first All-Big Ten this past season. He earned second-team all-conference honors in 2019.

He joins teammates Shaun Wade and Drue Chrisman, who both announced their intentions to enter the draft.
