Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby to return for his junior year

Roby is coming back to Columbus for another go at it. - Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The redshirt sophomore first-team All-Big Ten corner will return to school for his junior year

As first reported by the Columbus Dispatch's Tim May, first-team All-Big Ten cornerback Bradley Roby will returning to Columbus for what's to be his redshirt junior season next year. Roby, a draft eligible redshirt sophomore, was such a dominant force in the secondary that many teams elected to not even throw his direction during the majority of the season.

Next season's Buckeye secondary will also be returning starting safeties Christian Bryant and C.J. Barnett. Travis Howard, Roby's running mate in the secondary, has exhausted his eligibility and will have a bevy of candidates competing to replace him including Adam Griffin, Doran Grant, and potentially newcomers Eli Apple, Cameron Burrows, and Gareon Conley (though Conley is also expected to compete for playing time on offense) as well.

Roby had another 10 days to make up his mind about his future in Columbus, but had long been though to be a lean to come back to school for at least one more season.
