Although this season isn’t over yet for Ohio State, it’s hard to ignore the looming decision that Dwayne Haskins needs to make. While he’s not ready to commit to another year in Columbus or enter the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s very clear that he’ll always cherish his time with the Buckeyes.
Haskins broke several records for the Buckeyes this year, throwing for 4,580 yards and 47 touchdowns. Despite not winning the Heisman Trophy, the gunslinger definitely made an argument for best quarterback in college football.
If Haskins were to submit his name for the NFL Draft, he’d likely be selected in the first round. However, all those rumblings of where he would land won’t distract him from preparing for the Rose Bowl.
When asked about potentially leaving Ohio State after this season, Haskins revealed how tough it’d be to leave his dream school behind.
“Extremely hard. It’s been a dream of mine to play here for a long time and it’s been a blessing to be a part of this team, part of this university, part of my teammates and that will be a hard decision to make. But I’m just decided to finish off the season strong.”
In the event that the Rose Bowl is the last time Haskins suits up for Ohio State, expect him to put together a performance for the ages.
Ohio State and Washington will kick off at 5:00 p.m. ET on New Year’s Day.
The game will be on ABC.
