Following news WR James Clark is leaving the program, it looks like another Ohio State player is no longer with the team.
The Columbus Dispatch‘s Tim May reports freshman OL Tyler Gerald has left the program.
May reports that Gerald stopped participating in the offseason conditioning program a few weeks ago.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Gerald is from Portsmouth, Ohio. After playing at Sciotoville East through his junior year, Gerald transferred to IMG Academy in Florida for his senior season.
A member of the Buckeyes’ 2016 recruiting class, Gerald was a 4-star prospect for 247 Sports’ composite. He was rated as Ohio’s No. 25 recruit for 2016 and as the country’s No. 8 offensive guard.
Gerald isn’t the first backup lineman to leave the program. Kyle Trout announced his transfer to Cincinnati on Jan. 29. Evan Lisle, who graduated but still has a year left to play, transferred to Duke.
The Buckeyes already announced WR Clark wouldn’t be back with the team. Clark is graduating this spring after a season when he made 6 catches for 47 yards. Like Gerald, Clark is a former 4-star recruit.
Ohio State’s spring game is set for 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 15.
