Ohio State is losing a veteran offensive lineman. Offensive tackle Kevin Feder announced he will transfer from the Buckeyes’ program on Thursday morning.
Feder will be a graduate transfer and immediately eligible wherever he lands.
“Ohio State has been my home for the past three years and sadly this spring semester will be my last. I will be graduating with a Sports Industry degree with plans on transferring to a different University,’ Feder wrote on Twitter. “As of today, I am reopening my recruitment and looking for a new place to expand on my football career as well as my academics. I would like to thank Coach Meyer, Coach Stud, and the rest of the coaching staff for the opportunity to play at this prestigious University. …Most importantly, thank you to Buckeye Nation for truly being the Best Damn Fans in the Land with all your love and support!”

Feder, who is listed at 6-foot-9, 303 pounds, was a 3-star recruit in Ohio State’s 2015 class. He dealt with a foot injury for his first two seasons in Columbus and never was able to climb the Buckeyes’ depth chart.
Feder will have two years of eligibility left after transferring.
