Verlon Reed leaves the Ohio State Buckeyes football team

The former number two receiver is departing Ohio State for destinations unknown.

After recording just one catch during the 2012 season and just a year removed from a major knee injury, Ohio State third-year sophomore wide receiver Verlon Reed has left the Ohio State football program. The reason for his departure isn't immediately known, but given his general lack of playing time during the year, one has to think that he saw the writing on the wall.

Reed, who showed flashes of number two receiver potential in three of Ohio State's first four games prior to that injury in 2011, was never able to make a dent in a crowded Urban Meyer/Tom Herman curated Buckeyes receiver rotation that included Devin Smith, Corey Brown, Jake Stoneburner, Evan Spencer, and Chris Fields. His future plans weren't immediately known.

The Buckeyes' 2013 recruiting class includes Middletown, Ohio native Jalin Marshall, Maryland product Taivon Jacobs, and Massillon two-way player Gareon Conley who could all potentially factor in to provide additional wide receiver depth next season.
