Buckeyes DT Hankins announces he’s entering draft


Another college underclassman has opted to throw his hat in the ring for the NFL Draft.

And it’s a big hat.

Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins announced he’ll give up his senior season to go pro, according to the Associated Press.

The All-Big Ten choice has started the last two seasons for the Buckeyes, finishing in the top five in tackles both seasons.

The 6-foot-3, 322-pounder had 138 tackles, 16.5 for a loss and 5.0 sacks in three years.
