Ohio State junior safety Jamie Wood leaves the football team citing shoulder issues

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The junior had struggled with shoulder injuries throughout much of his career.

Just a week following the dismissal of Tyrone "T.Y." Williams for a violation of team rules, it looks like another Ohio State football scholarship will be opening up for next season. Junior safety Jamie Wood's father told WSYX6's Clay Hall that Wood is departing the football program and is on track to graduate this December:

Hall went on to say that Wood is looking to return to the program as a graduate assistant coach next year.

Given Ohio State's limit of 82 scholarships each year through 2014, situations like this turn out to be a mixed blessing. While it's unfortunate that Wood was never able to fulfill the promise he flashed since he first stepped onto campus in Columbus, this does help the Buckeyes reach that 82 cap without having to resort to Saban-ian methods or giving non-essential personnel extremely short leashes when they make mistakes. The Buckeyes presently sit at 17 commits for the class of 2013.
