Redshirt freshman safety Jayme Thompson will transfer from Ohio State, Eleven Warriors has confirmed. The story was first reported by BuckeyeGrove.com.
"I just needed a change of scenery," Thompson told Eleven Warriors.
Thompson, a Toledo native, will receive his release from Ohio State. Justin Rowland, of Rivals.com, reported Thompson will visit Kentucky for its spring game.
Penn State, Louisville, Missouri, Syracuse, Rutgers and West Virginia are also on Thompson's radar, Eleven Warriors has learned. He originally committed to the Mountaineers during the recruiting process before de-committing and choosing Ohio State.
Thompson redshirted last season after suffering a broken ankle in fall camp. He would have three seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out a year due to NCAA rules.
