After a month of speculation, Ohio State fans’ questions about the future of embattled four-star WR (and former HS standout QB) Torrance Gibson can finally end.
The one time bluechip prospect announced in a series of tweets Thursday his plans to transfer from Ohio State to Cincinnati:

Gibson had previously signed a National Letter of Intent with a junior college but then immediately denied plans to head there after the school announced they’d received his paperwork.
During a dramatic month that followed, Gibson traveled back to Ohio (and Columbus) around the same time classes were starting but then rumors begin to circulate that he could be transferring to join former Buckeye DC Luke Fickell at Cincinnati. Cincinnati area football insider Dave Berk implied that smoke had legs, but also clarified that Gibson’s arrival wasn’t unconditional. Now Gibson’s made those plans official.
Gibson had looked like a future star with the Buckeyes during this past offseason’s spring game before being suspended for alleged conduct involving a tutor. The suspension was university (and not athletic department issued) and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer uncharacteristically openly publicly criticized the decision not agreeing with the outcome based on his knowledge of the situation.
Best of luck to Gibson during his time in the Queen City.
