Wide receiver Alex Stump was one of four players who were no longer listed on Ohio State’s roster at the beginning of spring practice. Tuesday afternoon, Stump announced he’ll be transferring to Vanderbilt.
Through a message on Twitter, Stump thanked Ohio State “for all they have done for me these past two years.” He also stated he felt like it was in his best interest to “move on and pursue a new opportunity.”

Stump will have three years of eligibility remaining with the Commodores. He redshirted in 2015 before appearing in one game during the 2016 season with the Buckeyes.
Stump (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) was rated as a four-star recruit in the 2015 class. He was tabbed as the nation’s 37th-best receiver and the Avon, Ohio native was considered the 13th-best prospect in his state, according to 247Sports.
WR James Clark, OL Tyler Gerald and OL Kyle Trout are also no longer on Ohio State’s roster.
