Ohio State star wide receiver Garrett Wilson has played his last game with the Buckeyes.

These last three years have been unforgettable and becoming a Buckeye has been the single greatest decision of my life,” Wilson wrote. “I would like to thank my teammates, trainers and our entire coaching staff — Coach Hartline, Coach Day, Coach Mick and Coach Nico. I wouldn’t be in this situation without each and every one of you.
“To my family, thank you for your unconditional love, guidance and support. This journey has been a lifetime in the making and after careful consideration, today, I am excited to start the next chapter by declaring for the NFL Draft.”
