Ohio State may be cruising to a Big Ten title and a spot in the College Football Playoff. But it would appear that at least one player isn't interested in seeing that campaign through to completion.

According to ESPN reporter Tom VanHaaren, Ohio State safety Isaiah Pryor has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal. Per the report, he's listed as a grad transfer.

Pryor has made a lot of appearances for the Buckeyes in his college career. He saw significant action in 2018, recording 45 tackles, a sack, five passes defended and an interception that year.

But now it looks like Pryor is ready to continue his college career elsewhere.

Coming out of IMG Academy in 2017, Pryor was a four-star prospect and the No. 63 player in the nation per 247Sports. He was the No. 8 safety in the country, and the No. 10 recruit from the state of Florida.

According to, Pryor's departure will leave Ohio State with six scholarship safeties this year. Two more are on the way in the upcoming recruiting class.

Additionally, Ohio State has reportedly not yet confirmed that Pryor is in the NCAA transfer portal.
