Earlier today, it was reported that Evan Lisle would be graduate transferring from Ohio State, and would complete his college football career at Duke. Now, there’s a report that another offensive lineman will be headed elsewhere.
Per Ari Wasserman at Cleveland.com, Ohio State offensive lineman Kyle Trout will also transfer.
The two possible landing spots for Trout mentioned in the report were Cincinnati and Ohio.
Trout was a four-star recruit in the 2014 class, and had offers from programs like Pitt, Michigan State, Purdue, and West Virginia. He was a top 300 recruit nationally, and the 19th rated offensive tackle in the country.
Trout didn’t see a lot of time at Ohio State, and as the Buckeyes continue to stock up on offensive line recruits, including two five-stars in the 2017 class, making strides in the depth chart would be difficult.
The Buckeyes are likely to see additional roster attrition as well, to make room for other 2017 recruits.
We wish Trout the very best moving forward.
