The Buckeyes' four-star tight end has announced a transfer.

A former four-star recruit has apparently decided to transfer out of Ohio State.

Buckeyes' redshirt freshman tight end Kierre Hawkins indicated on Instagram late Monday night that he's headed to another program.

Hawkins posted a photo of himself in a Youngstown State jersey on Instagram.

Hawkins is an Ohio native. He redshirted the 2016 season and hasn't played so far this season. The 6-foot-4 tight end was ranked the No. 13 TE in the country by 247Sports' Composite Rankings coming out of high school.
