COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State Buckeyes tight end Jeremy Ruckert says he will return for his senior season instead of declaring for the upcoming NFL draft.

In a message posted to Twitter Monday, Ruckert says he has more to prove and more to give the university.

"I am very blessed and fortunate to have the opportunity to declare for the 2021 NFL Draft, however after talking to my family, my coaches, and those close to me I still think I have goals not yet achieved," Ruckert shared in a message to Buckeye Nation. 

"We are just scratching the surface, the road back to the top starts now," Ruckert added.
