Former Ohio State safety commits to Indiana

New, 2 comments

He didn't wear scarlet and gray for long, but the safety is now playing for another Big Ten team.

Former Ohio State safety Jayme Thompson has officially committed to playing as a Hoosier in 2015. Thompson signed with the Buckeyes back in February 2013, enrolled early and headed to Columbus; he even participated in that year's spring game in Cincinnati. He took a redshirt season his freshman year and started looking at other options shortly thereafter.

Following his first season, Thompson decided to transfer to the JUCO ranks and play for Iowa Western Community College. He lost one year of eligibility when he transferred, but is able to play immediately upon his return to FBS play.

With another year under his belt, he garnered renewed interest from Division I schools, particularly in the Big Ten. The 6'0, 190-pound safety racked up 81 total tackles at Iowa Western last season, in addition to two interceptions. With interest from Maryland and Indiana; Thompson decided to commit to being a Hoosier.
