Ruckert’s announcement comes just a few days after Ohio State capped off an 11-2 season with a thrilling come-from-behind victory over Utah in the Rose Bowl Game.

Ruckert finished fifth on the team in receiving yards this season, totaling 309 yards and 3 touchdowns on 26 receptions while appearing in all 13 games for the Buckeyes.

The 2021 season was the best of Ruckert’s career on the pass-catching front. In his previous 3 years in Columbus, the tight end totaled 306 yards and 9 touchdowns on 28 catches.

Ruckert will leave the Buckeyes with 54 catches, 615 yards and 12 touchdowns. Even on a team loaded with weapons at the receiver position, the tight end proved to be a legitimate option in the passing attack over the course of his 4-year career at Ohio State.

Entering the 2022 NFL Draft, Ruckert will likely be one of the top tight end prospects available.
