Boone's Back...No Word On Little Animal

Tim May of the Dispatch is reporting that Alex Boone will return to the Buckeyes for his senior season. Boone admits that he was leaning towards splitting for the NFL after the BCS title game because he was feeling "bitter" because of the loss to LSU. But after giving it a second thought, the left tackle decided that he needed to return to the Buckeyes because he wanted to improve his play and be better prepared for the NFL.

So far, Gun Show is the only Buckeye heading to the NFL. Boone joins Jenkins, Robo, and Freeman in returning to the Buckeyes for their senior seasons. But Buckeye Nation is still anxiously awaiting the word on Little Animal.

Personally, I think it's a toss-up on Laurinaitis. One side of me thinks he'll leave. The draft projections I've seen have him going in the 1st round, sometimes very early. But something tells me that there's a chance that Laurinaitis is the kind of guy that enjoys playing college ball. Only time will tell.
