Billy Price, the former Ohio State center, announced his retirement on Saturday citing a recent medical procedure. Last month, Price underwent emergency surgery to address a pulmonary embolism, during which doctors removed a saddle clot affecting both of his lungs.

At 29 years old, Price has chosen to retire due to concerns about the potential risk of internal bleeding while undergoing treatment with blood thinners. Sharing the news on Instagram, he reflected on the suddenness with which circumstances can change.

Price enjoyed a successful college career at Ohio State, winning the Rimington Trophy in 2017 as the nation’s top center, and earning accolades such as unanimous All-American and first-team All-Big Ten honors.
