Darius Slade leaves Ohio State.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, speaking Monday to an assembled media scrum at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago, announced the transfer of redshirt junior defensive lineman Darius Slade.

Slade, a three-star prospect from Montclair, New Jersey, was a last-minute addition to Ohio State's 2014 class.

Slade was expected to back up Sam Hubbard last season before rupturing his Achilles in preseason camp in August. He appeared in seven games in 2015 as a Varsity "O" winner.

Meyer added he thinks Slade is off to Arizona State, but wasn't entirely sure.
