BOOM-ish! Oklahoma running back Trey Sermon to transfer to Ohio State

It’s not your typical BOOM, but what is typical these days anyway?

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Ohio State Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The world is upside down, and recruiting and transfer news is flying around faster than contagious diseases (Too soon? Yeah, probably too soon.). On Sunday, former Oklahoma Sooners’ running back Trey Sermon announced that he will be joining the Ohio State Buckeyes’ backfield this fall.

After rushing for 2,076 yards in his three seasons in Norman — including a touchdown in Columbus in 2017 — Sermon officially entered the transfer portal last week and quickly agreed to join Tony Alford’s running back room. As an OU graduate, Sermon will be able to play immediately for OSU, which is in desperate need of running back depth, following the torn Achilles of Master Teague and the late-season injury to Marcus Crowley.

With the Buckeyes only landing one running back in their 2020 recruiting class (three-star Cincinnati native Miyan Williams) there was already a need at the position, injuries notwithstanding.

Sermon had visited Ohio State as a recruit, and drew on that experience to make a speedy decision after speaking with both Alford and head coach Ryan Day.

Personally, I would like to thank Sermon and the entire Ohio State football coaching staff for continuing to provide quality content while everyone is in quarantine! Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Trey!
