Report: Ohio State Offensive Lineman Kyle Trout To Transfer

The second Ohio State offensive lineman to transfer is Kyle Trout.

According to a report by Cleveland.com, Ohio State's Kyle Trout is set to transfer, making him the second Buckeye offensive lineman to leave Columbus today. 

It was earlier reported by 247sports that Evan Lisle is also set to transfer, with his new school reportedly being Duke. 

According to Cleveland.com's report, Trout, who was a four star recruit in the 2014 class out of Lancaster High School, is expected to transfer to either Ohio University or possibly follow Luke Fickell to Cincinnati. Trout never saw significant playing time while at Ohio State and with the Buckeyes numbers crunch coming down to the wire, it is expected that Trout's transfer likely won't be the last.

The Buckeyes have already seen the likes of J.T. Barrett, Tyquan Lewis, Billy Price and Sam Hubbard declare that they will return for the 2017 season, likely making the effort to get down to 85 scholarships harder than originally thought. 

Ohio State is still waiting on the decision of Marshon Lattimore to declare or return to OSU. A redshirt-sophomore who was also a member of the 2014 class, Lattimore is listed by many as one of the top draft eligible cornerbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
