The saga of suspended Ohio State wide receiver Torrance Gibson took another turn Monday afternoon when Bill Rabinowitz The Columbus Dispatch reported the former four-star recruit is not enrolled for spring semester, which officially began today.
A source tells me that WR Torrance Gibson is not enrolled at #OhioState this semester.

Ohio State suspended the quarterback turned wide receiver in August for a never specified violation of the student code of conduct.
Last month, Gibson signed a Letter of Intent to play for Mississippi Gulf Coast, a JUCO, but only as a means of securing a spot on the roster, should he want to take it; though its classes also started Jan. 9th.
His signature, however, didn't affect his status with Division 1 schools.
As for D1 options: Gibson could stay alienated from the team and re-apply for summer or fall semesters in Columbus (not likely).
The Fort Lauderdale native could also try his hand at another school.
His tweeting of flight plans to return to Ohio today led to speculation he could land at Cincinnati, where former Ohio State assistant Luke Fickell could use a dynamic quarterback to spearhead his version of the spread offense.
If this is the end for Gibson at Ohio State, he leaves without ever having played a snap.
