Can anyone think of a player who transferred to "greener pastures" that found any success?  I can think of a lot who have left for glory, but can't think of one that found it elswhere.

Ryan Mallet comes to mind, he did very good for himself at Arkansas

Pat Devlin went from bench at State Penn to starting in the FCS National Championship (and losing) with the Original Winged Helmets (after Princeton) Delaware

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

We had winged helmets before them...so did Sparty, the NY Giants...

I should have clarified:  transferred from OHIO STATE to someplace else...

Sammy Maldonado, Louis Irrizay, Marcel Frost....... funny thing is, I know these kids as future Buckeye stars and could tell you what high schools they went to, but soon after they transfer from tOSU, I can't remember a thing about them.

I know there were a few QB's who didn't get playing time in the 2000's who transfered out, as I sit here and try to remember who they were and where they went, the wind just whistles threw my ears. 

(ADD) Rob Schoehenoft ??

Good luck to him.  Square peg in a round hole now.

Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson was very, very good at NC State. The only problem is that he was in the ACC and his supporting cast is worse than the Browns for Colt McCoy. That didn't stop him from being All-Conference, though.

Didn't Cam Newton transfer from being Jesus' backup at Florida to JuCo and then the Heisman at Auburn?

and false tests...but Jim Tressel is the devil.

I left the false tests out because they were alleged, but never really proven.  I didn't want to stoop to an ESPN level of fact proclaiming.

I thought the tutor or whomever took them came forward; if not...my bad.

Teboooooooooow time.

There is nothing to not like about that kid.

What not to like? I got one. See: The First Commandment. You can blame the four-letter word later.

NovaBuckeye --- how'd you like another 4th quarter comeback by the Mr. Clutch.

Tebooooooooooooooow!

I think he was picked up as a free agent.

I hope Taylor goes somewhere with a good QB coch and an awesome offensive line. I think he can be really good in a pro style offense.

BuckeyeChris's picture

Bingo....as with Zwick, Boeckman, etc... there was never a prayer for this kid to truly succeed behind a Bollman offensive line. Best of luck, Taylor. 

cplunk's picture

Yup! I think he throws a great deep ball. Wish him the best of luck.

flipbuckeye's picture

Best of luck to the kid.

So does this free up a schollie?

Maestro's picture

Certainly does, and if kids are strongly considering leaving I hope they decide to do it before signing day.  I suspect there will be a few more lost to attrition.  If you believe twitter comments T.Y. Williams would be a possibility.  McVey is suspected to be a possible medical hardship which would free another schollie.  Of course, the NCAA is probably going to dock us a few more.

haven't heard the TY Williams comments.  What is his beef?

NoVA Buckeye's picture

something along the lines of "why not use a 6'5'' receiver???"

 

me thinks he dont understand the concept of "Walrusball"

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Maestro's picture

It was more like "any schools out there that can use a 6 ft 7 WR?"

It was clearly immature and I am sure he regretted it, but it's not the type of thing that inspires much confidence in Williams being much of a leader or even having a future at all in Columbus.

gravey's picture

me thinks he doesn't understand the concept of "receiver", which means something like, "catches footballs".  Dude couldn't hang on to anything...

tampa buckeye's picture

He caught every ball I saw thrown his way this year.  Thats about 3 for 3.  #10 has more drops this season.  

yrro's picture

When I saw him in practice, he looked like he was still figuring out where the ends of his legs and arms were. I'm sure he'll have some good looks in the offense this coming year as he grows into himself.

Maestro's picture

He definitely had a few drops.  He has potential though.  Hope he gets his head on straight.

Best of luck to Graham.  Definitely not a fit for the new offense, and he wasn't going to challenge Miller for the starting job.  Hope he can find a starting spot somewhere.

btalbert25's picture

Even if Meyer weren't the coach was there any real chance he would ever see the field.  I wish him luck, but "greener pastures" for him may mean going some place that will actually give him the chance to see the field.

smart move/perfect timing.

Buckeyejason's picture

This kid would be great at an Alabama or USC. Wish him luck.

BUCKEYES BABY!

BuckeyeChief's picture

You know, when he signed, my first thought was "we're losing to scUM because he's on the roster, and his dad never beat them", and we did...(he redshirted last year though).

Taylor is an amazing young man with a great future. I am excited for the new buckeyes and for Taylor. His Dad you might recall transferred from Notre Dame to join the Buckeyes, worked for him and 11 years in the NFL!!

BuckeyeChief's picture

I wish it would've worked out as well; I wondered why neither him nor Guiton got any sort of shot early on this season.

As someone earlier stated though, him, Zwick and Boeckman were doomed from the start with our o-line (or lack there of).
