For the second time this offseason, a former Ohio State walk-on specialist is transferring to Michigan State.

Michael O’Shaughnessy, who spent the past four years with the Buckeyes as a backup punter, announced his commitment to the Spartans on Wednesday night.

O’Shaughnessy joins long snapper Mason Arnold as former Ohio State specialists who have transferred to Michigan State this offseason. Arnold, who started the Buckeyes’ final six games of last season at long snapper, opted to transfer to Michigan State in January after Ohio State brought in former Arizona State long snapper John Ferlmann.

While O’Shaughnessy would have remained a backup behind Jesse Mirco if he stayed at Ohio State, he could have a chance to compete for the starting job at Michigan State, which is replacing 2022 All-American punter Bryce Baringer.
