The Buckeyes’ path toward the NCAA’s scholarship limit continues.
Ohio State has lost another player, according to a report by 247Sports.
Buckeyes’ wide receiver Alex Stump is leaving the OSU program, according to Dave Biddle of Bucknuts.
The news of Stump’s transfer comes a day after it was announced that wide receiver James Clark and offensive lineman Tyler Gerald are leaving the program.
Stump was a four-star recruit in Ohio State’s 2015 recruiting class and redshirted his first season on campus. He played sparingly as a redshirt freshman in 2016, catching one pass for eight yards. He was expected to be a bigger part of OSU’s passing game this season, but there are a decent amount of young wide receivers who could take playing time away from him.
Ohio State is now down to 86 scholarship players with Stump’s departure. The Buckeyes need to get down to 85 players to make the NCAA’s limit.
