Buckeyes D-lineman granted request to transfer

Ohio State mascot

Initially expected to compete for playing time this spring along Ohio State’s new defensive line, defensive end Se’von Pittman will instead be transferring from the program.

Ohio State confirmed that it had granted Pittman (not pictured) his request to transfer to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer and Columbus Dispatch. Although not confirmed, it’s reported that the request to transfer stems from an off-field issue. It’s believed Pittman’s new destination will be Louisville.

Pittman, a four-star member of the Buckeyes’ 2012 recruiting class, and one who flipped from Michigan State to OSU following the hire of Urban Meyer, redshirted this past season while dealing with a knee injury.

The departure brings Ohio State down to 82 scholarship players, which would satisfy the NCAA’s sanctions against the program.

    Interesting…I wonder if he chose to leaver or was pushed out.

    I doubt he was pushed out given they lost nearly their whole starting defensive line from ’12. Yes, they have to get to 82 … before August. That’s plenty of time to do some weeding.

    One successful escape… 799,999 still trying.

    Yes, they’re dying to escape, so they search for fellow students to pummel and rob so that freedom from the shackles of scholarship is imminent and the dream of barred windows may soon be realized. Wait …

    In Ohio? No. Unfortunately, I am a Buckeyes fan of nearly 30 years who lives in the heart of SEC Country. I love college football as a whole and follow it more closely than normal people. lol Go Buckeyes!
