Ohio State will look for a new QB1 to lead the Buckeyes in 2023.

On Monday, star quarterback C.J. Stroud announced he has declared for the NFL draft after two years leading the Ohio State offense. A two-time Heisman finalist and a back-to-back winner of the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Year and Quarterback of the Year awards, Stroud is expected to be a top-10 pick in late April.

Stroud made his announcement via a graphic on Twitter which featured a statement including his decision to forgo his senior season and turn pro. That tweet received plenty of reactions from Buckeye Nation, including some from former and current Ohio State players who wished Stroud the best as he enters a new chapter of his football career.

We've gathered some of the most noteworthy reactions from players like Kyle McCord, Marvin Harrison Jr., Miyan Williams, Paris Johnson Jr., Julian Fleming, Luke Wypler, Parris Campbell, Mike Doss, Tyvis Powell, Tanner McCalister and several others. 

Kyle McCord: “Be Great 7”

Marvin Harrison Jr.: Always Connected
