Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud is officially in the 2023 NFL draft.

Despite some talk that he might stay in college another year, Stroud announced this morning that he will go to the NFL. Amid reports that Ohio State backers were making multimillion-dollar pitches to Stroud about potential name, image and likeness earnings he could make with the Buckeyes in 2023, Stroud acknowledged that it wasn’t an easy decision.
