Mass Exodus Of Ohio State Football Players Is Continuing

BY Robert j. matthews

Another player from the Ohio State Buckeyes has chosen to enter the transfer portal. 

Running back Chip Trayanum's choice to enter the portal means that 13 Buckeyes will be leaving after the 2023 regular season.

The Buckeyes lost their quarterback Kyle McCord, who decided to leave the team after one year as the starter. 

Trayanum came to Ohio State as a linebacker, but he soon switched to offense. He was considered a top recruit in high school.

He didn't play as the main running back at Ohio State, but he got a lot of playing time as the team's short-yardage runner. 

Trayanum had a good season, with 373 yards and three touchdowns on 85 carries. He still has one year left in college.

Trayanum has joined McCord and other Buckeyes, including wide receiver Julian Fleming, in the transfer portal. 

Fleming was a highly sought-after player in high school and has one more year to play college football.

He wants to be one of the best wide receivers in the 2025 NFL Draft. 

Unfortunately, Buckeyes fans won't see him playing in Columbus anymore because he is looking for another school through the transfer portal.
