Spring rosters have come out, and Snead’s name isn’t on it.

NCAA Football: Oregon State at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Brian Snead appeared in two games this season for the Ohio State Buckeyes before being suspended, without an official explanation ever being offered for why. Now, after not playing in any contests since the Week 2 meeting with Rutgers, Snead is officially no longer part of the OSU football team.

First reported by Tom Orr of The Ozone.net, the spring rosters reflected the news: Brian Snead’s name was absent. Shortly after 4 p.m. ET Friday, Snead tweeted out that he was transferring elsewhere.

Getting 11 carries combined against Oregon State and the Scarlet Knights, Snead collected 37 yards and a touchdown. But, he didn’t travel with the team to Arlington, Texas, to face TCU — and the rest is history.

A member of the 2018 recruiting class, the Seffner, Fla. native was a four-star prospect, according to the 247sports composite. Amongst RBs, he was the third best in the class; in the Sunshine State, he was considered the 17th best prospect. Snead turned down offers from Florida, Michigan and Kentucky in favor of Ohio State.
