Former Ohio State wide receiver resurfacing at Michigan State, per report

From Buckeye to Spartan, Frank Epitropoulos is apparently coming out of retirement.

Former Ohio State wide receiver, and Columbus Ohio native, Frank Epitropoulos will now be a Spartan, as 247Sports reports he will be a non-scholarship player for Michigan State. Epitropoulos is leaving a family tradition behind, as his dad and uncle both donned the scarlet and gray in college, and will head north.

Epitropoulos left the Ohio State football program under the pretense he was going to retire and focus on pursuing a medical degree. He hung up his cleats after his redshirt sophomore season, leaving what should be two years of eligibility left for the wideout.

The 6'1, 206-pound receiver will now be joining one of his high school teammates in East Lansing, and will face his former team in late November. It's unclear whether Epitropoulos' ambitions (or plans) changed or what led to the apparent change of heart.
