Before ever playing a game at Ohio State, Torrance Gibson's career as a Buckeye is officially over.
The former OSU quarterback turned wide receiver tweeted Thursday afternoon that he will be transferring to Cincinnati in the fall to join the Bearcats football program which is led by former Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell.
Gibson came to Ohio State as one of the Buckeyes top recruits in the 2015 class. He redshirted the 2015 season and made a position switch from quarterback to wide receiver during that season. Gibson was expected to contribute to Ohio State in 2016 as a receiver, but was suspended by the university for violating the school's student code of conduct.
In an interview with ESPN's Austin Ward, Gibson said he will return to playing quarterback for the Bearcats and is currently enrolled at Cincinnati State in order to obtain an associate's degree that would make him eligible for the 2017 season.
In Ohio State's 2016 spring game, Gibson caught six passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns, his only game action as a Buckeye.
