Se'Von Pittman granted his release from Ohio State

The former 4-star defensive end is no longer with the football program.

After missing the first practice of 2013 for reasons a team spokesman wasn't privy to, the Columbus Dispatch's Tim May has confirmed that DE Se'Von Pittman has been granted his release from Ohio State. Pittman came to Ohio State with high expectations but wasn't the instant impact player many had in mind upon his commitment and ultimate arrival on campus.

Pittman originally committed to Michigan State in June of 2012 only to flip to Ohio State December of Ohio State that same year. Pittman's commitment drew the ire of former Ohio State defensive coordinator Mark Dantonio. Pittman, a Canton McKinley product, was a 4-star defensive end out of high school, and along with Noah Spence, Adolphus Washington, and Tommy Schutt were expected to provide immediate depth for the Buckeyes.

The latter three highly touted young linemen all fulfilled their promise (and rather quickly at that), but Pittman never quite came around due to injuries and other issues not widely known. Some also speculated that Pittman was one of (if not the only) freshman never to lose their black stripe their freshman year, perhaps indicating a clash with the coaching staff. Pittman's future plans weren't immediately known as the time of the confirmation of his departure from the football program.
