The winding football career of Torrance Gibson took another turn Friday when the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League announced the signing of the Mississippi Gulf Coast wide receiver.

Ohio State suspended Gibson, a five-star recruit who never played a snap for the Buckeyes, in August of 2016 for a violation of student conduct, although head coach Urban Meyer publicly disagreed with the ruling. After failing to earn reinstatement, Gibson then failed to matriculate at Cincinnati under new coach Luke Fickell.

His signing with the Eskimos comes after a tumultuous stint at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College that saw two position switches and a team suspension.
