CorMontae Hamilton is going home.

After three seasons with Ohio State, Hamilton is transferring to Memphis, the Memphis native announced from his Twitter account Monday.

Hamilton was signed by Ohio State in the 2019 recruiting class as a three-star recruit. He began his career as a tight end in his redshirt freshman year, but spent the past two seasons at defensive end for the Buckeyes. His playing time was limited across those two seasons, only playing 83 total snaps. He finishes his OSU career with six total tackles (three for loss) and two sacks. 

He officially entered the transfer portal on Feb. 21, though he wasn't listed on OSU's roster a few weeks before that. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound defensive end will be reunited with former Ohio State defensive backs coach Matt Barnes, who left OSU this past season for the defensive coordinator job at Memphis.

Hamilton will have three years of eligibility remaining. 

Ohio State has seen some expected turnover on its roster this spring, as the Buckeyes entered spring football with more than 90 players on scholarship, far exceeding the NCAA-mandated 85-man limit. With Andre Turrentine entering the transfer portal Monday, OSU now has exactly 85 scholarship players on its roster.
