“I should be in the middle of preparing for our game this week. Instead, due to the events of 2020, I spent the last weeks with my family and coaching staff trying to determine my future,” Davis wrote. “On one hand, playing at The Ohio State has been the experience of a lifetime. On the other, my childhood dream is to play in the NFL.
“After much thought and deliberation and given the uncertainty of our times, I have decided to start preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft.”
Buckeye for life! Cannot thank Buckeye Nation enough for the support the past 3 years. Words can’t explain how much I will miss playing in the shoe! pic.twitter.com/IEVA323HGA

Davis was an Associated Press first-team All-American in 2019 as a sophomore after starting all 14 games for the Buckeyes.
He also was listed as a preseason AP All-American for 2020, but the Big Ten Conference postponed all fall sports seasons because of the coronavirus pandemic.
