Ruckert Accepts Invitation To Reese’s Senior Bowl

By November 28, 2021 (6:15 pm)Football

Hours before his final regular-season game, the Reese’s Bowl announced that Ohio State tight end Jeremy Ruckert accepted an invitation to play in its game, scheduled for Feb. 5, 2022.

Ruckert has caught 23 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns this season and is one touchdown shy of Ohio State’s career record for most scores by a tight end. He is expected to be among the top tight ends selected in the 2022 NFL Draft and a likely middle-round pick according to initial mock drafts.

While Ruckert could return to Ohio State for one more season because of COVID eligibility, the Lindenhurst, N.Y., native, repeatedly indicated that this would be his final year with the program, and will likely leave for the pros after the Buckeyes compete in their bowl game.
