Tyrone "T.Y." Williams, a 6-6 Cleveland product who was dismissed from Ohio State this past fall, is planning to enroll at Ohio Dominican next season, Land-Grant Holy Land has learned.
Former Buckeye Verlon Reed is also said to be considering the Panthers, and he is expected to make a final decision in the next few days.
The 6-6 Williams enrolled at Ohio State after a promising career at Shaw High School in East Cleveland, where he earned 2nd team All-Ohio honors, but never caught on with the Buckeyes. He started only one game in 2011 against Purdue, and caught zero passes in 2012 before being dismissed due to an undisclosed violation of team rules.
He'll be joining a quality D2 program in ODU with a high powered offense. The Panthers went 8-3 last season, scoring over 20 points in every game, and have only had one losing season since 2007. 78% of ODU's scoring game from underclassmen last season, so adding even just Williams could make an already potent offense that much more dangerous with his size.
Best of luck to Williams, and our fellow Columbus brothers at Ohio Dominican. Hopefully, the Buckeye faithful won't have to travel far to follow Verlon Reed's future college football career as well.
