Ohio State trending to add SEC defensive back in transfer portal

As we outlined in our recruiting weekend recap, former Ole Miss cornerback davison igbinosun visited Ohio State this past weekend. What we didn’t know was where the freshman All-American was leaning after his visits.

There was some very good news on that today. 247Sports transfer portal specialist Chris Hummer put in a crystal ball for Igbinosun to end up at Ohio State.

This is huge news for Ryan Day and defensive coordinator Jim Knowles for multiple reasons. First, the cornerback depth is lacking. There are just six scholarship players at the position, including the incoming freshman.

Experience is also needed. Even though he was just a true freshman, Igbinosun made a big impact this past season, registering 36 tackles with 5 passes broken up. He’s a longer cornerback, too. At 6 feet, 2 inches and 185 pounds, he’d be the biggest on the roster.

If the crystal ball turns out to be accurate, Igbinosun would fill a big need for the Buckeyes and would be a start toward quieting the chatter that this staff can’t recruit transfers.
