After four seasons at Ohio State, former walk-on wide receiver Sam Wiglusz has found a new home.

Wiglusz announced Wednesday he'll be transferring to MAC institution Ohio University, and sent out a thank you message to Ohio State as well. 

While the 5-foot-11, 189-pound wideout was a walk-on at OSU, he did occasionally see the field, finishing with three catches for 25 yards in his Buckeyes career and seeing snaps in six games in 2021. His best game came Nov. 20 against Michigan State in OSU's 56-7 win over the Spartans, as he caught two passes for 13 yards. 

He even was utilized in OSU's spring football game on April 16 and received four targets and made two catches for 21 yards. Wiglusz then entered his name in the transfer portal three days later. 

In early December, former OSU wide receiver Garrett Wilson said Wiglusz is talented enough that he could start "at most other schools around the country." He'll certainly have an opportunity for much more playing time for the Bobcats.

Wiglusz also had a successful high school career, being named a second-team All-Ohio performer as a senior for Brecksville-Broadview Heights in 2017 before walking-on to Ohio State in 2018.
