    After two ACL tears, the talented linebacker is leaving Ohio State football.

    After battling multiple serious injuries early in his career, Ohio State linebacker Kyle Berger is hanging up his cleats. After tearing his ACL multiple times, Berger is leaving the Ohio State football program and will medically retire, per Urban Meyer's National Signing Day press conference. It's unknown whether Berger will remain a student at Ohio State (he can, under scholarship, if he wants to), but he will no longer count against the football program's 85 man scholarship limit.

    Berger was a celebrated recruit in the class of 2014, a four-star prospect from Ohio prep powerhouse Cleveland St.Ignatius, who picked the Buckeyes over Michigan, Penn State, Arkansas, and a slew of other big name programs. However, an ACL tear robbed him of his senior season of high school football, and a second ACL tear in 204 pushed him back even farther. Berger joins fellow Ignatius grads Scott McVey and Blake Thomas as other highly touted prospects who were unable to overcome injuries at Ohio State.

    While losing a player of Berger's caliber is always a blow, Ohio State has recruited well at linebacker.

    Our best wishes, and hopes for good health to Berger, in whatever he decides to do next.
