Ohio State Receiver Noah Brown Will Declare for 2017 NFL Draft
By Tony Gerdeman

COLUMBUS — In a bit of an unexpected move, Ohio State redshirt sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown has announced that he is foregoing his remaining two years of eligibility and will be entering the 2017 NFL Draft.

Brown caught 32 passes for 402 yards and seven touchdowns this past season. The catches and yards were second on the team to Curtis Samuel, while his seven touchdown receptions tied Samuel for the most on the team.

Four of those touchdown receptions came in a very memorable game against Oklahoma, where he caught a career-high five passes for a career-high 72 yards.

Brown announced his decision via Twitter.

Brown caught 33 passes in his career. His departure leaves a void at the 'X' receiver position for the Buckeyes, but 2017 should see a number of players vying for the go-to position out wide.

Rising sophomore Binjimen Victor impressed late and he will be an option moving forward. Rising redshirt junior Parris Campbell split time with Brown at the 'X' this past season and will be expected to step up this coming season. Rising sophomore Austin Mack repped there in the spring and fall camp as well. Other names will emerge, even possibly a true freshman like Trevon Grimes out of St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida.
