Ohio State's offensive line depth took a hit today. One of the Buckeyes' former four-star recruits has announced his intentions to transfer.
Matthew Burrell Jr., a rising redshirt junior, announced on Instagram this evening that he's decided to transfer out of the Buckeyes' program.
"Crazy spring for me, but everything will work out the way it’s supposed to!" Burrell wrote in his post.
The 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman was believed to be in contention for the starting center position. It's a tough loss for the Buckeyes.
Burrell is a Virginia native. He was a four-star recruit in the 2015 class. He redshirted his first year on campus and has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
The offensive lineman says he does not yet know where he'll end up. He will likely have some good options.
