Last season, Crowley appeared in limited action and rushed for 103 yards with the Buckeyes. His best game came with 58 rushing yards in the win against Rutgers but his season was cut short after an injury during the bye week.

Unfortunately, RBs coach Tony Alford announced Friday that Crowley has sustained “another serious injury.” Head coach Ryan Day followed that announcement by revealing that Crowley will be medically retiring from football as a result.
