Ohio State starts spring drills Tuesday, March 7. The roster will include a new face besides the nine early enrollees who joined the team in January.
The school announced Monday that Kendall Sheffield, as originally planned, will start classes Tuesday, Feb. 28. According to a university spokesman, Sheffield will enroll in the second session of spring semester.
Sheffield is a former five-star recruit and Alabama signee who transferred to Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, for the 2016 season.
Sheffield is an electric athlete and capable return man who figures to factor into the Buckeyes' defensive backfield plans immediately. Though Ohio State hasn't traditionally relied on JUCO transfers, Sheffield is poised to make an unprecedented impact at Ohio State.
