Former Ohio State offensive tackle Max Wray is transferring to Colorado.

Wray, who entered the transfer portal last month, confirmed to Eleven Warriors on Sunday that he is headed to Boulder, as Rivals' Mike Farrell first reported.

The former Buckeye, who spent three years at Ohio State, still has three years of collegiate eligibility thanks to a redshirt and the NCAA giving all players a free year of eligibility in 2020.

Wray will be joining his younger brother Jake, who was also a one-time Ohio State commit, at Colorado. Jake Wray medically retired from football in March due to a back injury, but is still a student at Colorado and is now a filmmaker for the team, per his Twitter bio.

Max Wray, a four-star recruit in the class of 2018, was a backup for most of his Ohio State career. He started at right tackle last season against Michigan State, and earned champion honors for his performance against the Spartans, when both Thayer Munford and Nicholas Petit-Frere were unavailable due to COVID-19. He played just one offensive snap the rest of the season, however, and was set to remain a backup in 2021 with Munford and Petit-Frere both back for another year. At Colorado, Wray should have the opportunity to compete for a starting job and play more than he would have in Columbus.

Wray is leaving Ohio State with a degree from the university, as he graduated with a bachelor's degree in communications during Sunday's spring commencement.
