Former Ohio State walk-on wide receiver Garyn Prater is transferring to Cincinnati, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

Prater's younger brother Evan, a three-star quarterback in the recruiting class of 2020, also announced Thursday that he is committing to the Bearcats.

Garyn Prater is coming off a strong spring at Ohio State, where he showed some playmaking ability in practice, but he faced a steep uphill climb to significant playing time as a walk-on in a receiver room loaded with talent. At Cincinnati, however, Prater should have a chance to push for playing time right away while also getting the opportunity to play with his younger brother, who could have potentially been a candidate for the Buckeyes if they chose to pursue a second quarterback for their recruiting class of 2020.

The Praters are from Wyoming, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati.

Garyn Prater has three remaining seasons of collegiate eligibility, and because he was a walk-on at Ohio State, he'll be eligible to play immediately for the Bearcats, thanks to transfer rule changes approved by the NCAA last month.
