Andre Turrentine leaves Ohio State after just one year.
Redshirt freshman safety has entered the transfer portal after just one season with the Buckeyes, a spokesman for Ohio State confirmed Monday.
A four-star recruit in the 2021 class, Turrentine was red-shirted last season after playing in just four games as a true freshman, but was among the standouts in this spring’s game, playing the most snaps of any Buckeye (106) and recorded nine tackles with a passing foul.
That said, it was still unlikely that Turrentine would be at two-depth in safety, with Josh Proctor and Kourt Williams set to lead the depth chart on the bandit (the position Turrentine played in this spring’s match) alongside Ronnie Hickman and Kye Stokes by adjust and Tanner McCalister and Cameron Martinez on nickel safety.
Turrentine will bring four years of collegial eligibility to her new school.
Ohio State is now down to 85 scholarship players for the 2022 season.
