With Ohio State's spring practice slate set to open on Tuesday, the school announced Monday that wide receiver James Clark has opted to leave the program.
Clark, who would have been a fifth-year senior, is set to graduate from Ohio State this spring with a degree in finance. With a year of eligibility remaining, Clark would likely be eligible to play right away at another school as a graduate transfer.
The New Smyrna Beach, Fla., native joined Ohio State as a four-star prospect in the class of 2013. He played in three games as a true freshman in 2013 before redshirting due to an ankle injury. He had a limited impact in both 2014 and 2015 before playing in every game this past season. In his final year with the Buckeyes, Clark registered six catches for 47 yards.
