Sam Wiglusz is the second Buckeye to enter the transfer portal in the wake of this past weekend's spring game.

Following defensive lineman Jacolbe Cowan on Monday, Wiglusz – a fifth-year wideout who joined the Buckeyes as a preferred walk-on in the summer of 2018 – will look to finish his college football career elsewhere, a program spokesperson confirmed to Eleven Warriors Tuesday.

Wiglusz caught three passes for 25 yards in his Buckeye career, including a pair of receptions for 14 yards in Ohio State's blowout win over Michigan State this past November.

Wiglusz played in a career-high six games as a senior in 2021, logging a season-high 14 offensive snaps against the Spartans but playing only on special teams in three of his six appearances on the year.

In Saturday's spring game, Wiglusz caught two passes for 21 yards and was targeted four times in the exhibition.

In the lead-up to the spring game, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day likened Wiglusz to former Buckeye walk-on-turned-captain wideout C.J. Saunders, and former teammates like Garrett Wilson have praised Wiglusz' abilities in the past.

A native of Brecksville, Ohio, Wiglusz was a second-team All-Ohio performer as a senior for Brecksville-Broadview Heights in 2017 before joining the Buckeyes thereafter.
