Ohio State K Blake Haubeil reveals decision for 2021 NFL Draft
Placekicker Blake Haubeil had a strong run with the Buckeyes, but he announced it has come to an end Saturday evening.
Haubeil, who missed the National Championship Game due to COVID-19, revealed that he will be declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft. Haubeil was a member of the 2017 recruiting class for the Buckeyes and has spent three years as the primary field goal and extra-point man for Ohio State.
In a note on Twitter, Haubeil called his time kicking for Buckeye Nation an “honor, a privilege, and a dream come true.” Check it out:

Haubeil was limited in 2020 with an injury but was productive when on the field. He went 24-for-24 on extra-point tries and 5-for-7 on field-goal tries. For his career, Haubeil made every one of 146 extra-point tries and went 28-for-35 on field goals, good for an 80% clip.
Haubeil occupies a number of spots on Ohio State’s all-time list. He is one of two kickers to kick more than 100 extra points in Buckeye history and make all of them. He is sixth all-time in field goals made, fourth in total points (230), and second all-time in field goal percentage.
Best of luck to Haubeil as he makes the transition to the NFL!
