Ohio State's Drue Chrisman punts during the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against Michigan State, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, in East Lansing, Mich.

Ohio State punter Drue Chrisman announced Friday evening that he would be entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Chrisman was eligible to return to the Buckeyes this fall after the NCAA granted an extra year of eligibility to student-athletes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a post on Twitter, Chrisman thanked his family and friends along with the coaches and support staff at Ohio State.

"These last five years playing for the Buckeyes have given me friends and memories that will last a lifetime," Chrisman wrote. "The brotherhood is real and I loved every second of it."

Chrisman was a Ray Guy semifinalist in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, he was an honorable mention All-Big Ten by the coaches and media.

He was also Academic All-Big Ten and an Ohio State Scholar-Athlete in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Aside from flipping field positions, Chrisman was also known for his water bottle flipping talent. In early 2020, he raised $14,000 for Australian bushfire relief during a 24-hour live stream flipping bottles.

And we can't forget when he proposed to his girlfriend during the 2019 Spring Game. The two got married this past Spring.

He joins cornerback Shaun Wade in entering the draft. Wade made his annoucement Friday morning.
