Evan Pryor is leaving Ohio State after three years as a Buckeye.

The Ohio State running back told On3’s Hayes Fawcett on Sunday that he will enter the transfer portal when it officially opens tomorrow.

The No. 6 running back and No. 83 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, Pryor came to Ohio State with expectations of being a weapon out of the backfield as both a runner and a receiver but never found a consistent role in the Buckeyes’ offense. 

After redshirting as a true freshman in 2021, Pryor suffered a torn patellar tendon in preseason camp before the 2022 season that sidelined him for his entire second year as a Buckeye. While he was available for the entire season this year, Pryor saw playing time in only four games and gained just 49 yards on 19 carries with one catch for two yards.

Pryor becomes the fourth Buckeye to announce he will enter the transfer portal over the past week, joining defensive end Omari Abor, safety Cameron Martinez and center Victor Cutler Jr. The transfer portal officially opens Monday.
