I think it is the right decision. He is not ready for the NFL yet and another year under Urban will certainly help his draft stock. Three things come to mind off the cuff:

1. It is the right decision on paper but Braxton has had some issues with injuries dating back to high school. I don't believe he has ever played an entire season healthy. His stock will only improve if he can stay healthy next season.
2. He will be playing with nearly an entirely new offensive line. It will be interesting to see that change/adjustment/transition.
3. Carlos Hyde is gone but OSU has a lot of depth at running back that will help ease the trasition.
Bonus: Braxton will be in the Heisman race again next season and has a chance to become the first player to win the Big Ten player of the year award three times.
Double Bonus: All-American LB Ryan Shazier has decided to enter the NFL draft leaving an already lackluster linebacking corps depleted.

Reactions? Thoughts?
