Kurt Coleman Returns for One More Year

In a release today by the Ohio State University, Junior Safety Kurt Coleman announced that he will be returning for his forth year as an Ohio State Buckeye. Coleman was one of a number of juniors to ask the NFL for their opinion on his draft position in the upcoming 2009 Draft. In the statement Coleman discusses his desire to complete his degree and helping the 2009 team.

By Steve Patterson

“After a lot of thought and study, I have decided to remain at Ohio State for the 2009 season to complete my degree and my college football career."

“I am extremely blessed to be in the position where these opportunities are possible, and I’m very grateful for the support of my family, my teammates and the Ohio State community."

“My decision to come back is a lot about helping this team. I feel we can do anything next year. We have a lot of great leaders coming back and an excellent group of underclass talent. For me personally, my family and I felt this was the best decision for me, to make my career at Ohio State even better than it has already been."

“I have a lot to prove to myself and a lot of things I want to accomplish. With one more year here, I can attain all those goals."

In a related story, wide receiver Brian Hartline decides to leave for the NFL.

"I am thrilled to declare my eligibility for the National Football League draft." Hartline said.

“Everyone involved within The Ohio State University football program has done a tremendous job for me.  I want to thank all of them, particularly Coach Tressel, for helping me to succeed as both a student and an athlete during my time here."

“I would especially like to thank the media and the fans of Ohio for being great to me and to my family throughout my career."

“I have had an outstanding experience at OSU and am thankful for the support I continue to receive.  I now look forward to testing myself against the top competitors in the National Football League.”
