The former Buckeye receiver will land at Division II Findlay after considering joining former teammate Tyrone "T.Y." Williams at Ohio Dominican.

After previously considering joining former teammate T.Y. Williams at Ohio Dominican, the former promising Buckeye receiver will instead enroll at Findlay the Toledo Blade reports. Reed left the football program one year removed from major knee surgery after the conclusion of the 2012 football season. The specifics of his reasoning for transfer were never made clear, but were believed to be related to playing time/opportunities with the team.

During Ohio State's "lost" 2011 season, Reed looked to potentially be the receiving weapon the Buckeyes were unable to identify during those Spring and Summer Practices. Reed wasn't able to garner much playing time and only recorded one catch during the 2012 season.

With Reed gone, this opens up the possibilities for players like class of 2013 JUCO WR Corey Smith to potentially step into the rotation immediately. Smith is presently committed to Mississippi State. Scout's Bill "Bank" Greene said on 97.1 The Fan's "Bishop & Rothman" radio program earlier today that, "I think there's still some i's that need dotted, maybe some t's crossed. But I think that's going to get worked out this week. I think Urban's going to go down there to Mississippi, talk to his coach, check out the transcript a little closer and I think if everything fits, then I think Corey Smith will flip from Mississippi State." Greene also expounded upon his feelings that Smith, one of the best junior college wide receivers in the country, could be an FBS-ready receiver from day one.
