It appears Torrance Gibson is coming back to Ohio State for the spring semester.
Gibson has yet to play a college game, but he had a noteworthy fall. Gibson was suspended for the season by the school in August. It was Gibson’s intention to re-enroll at Ohio State in the spring semester. But, in November, a Mississippi junior college announced Gibson had signed a Letter of Intent.
Gibson denied that report, but his future remained unclear. Saturday night, he may have shed some light on it.
Gibson, who’s from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., tweeted that he had a flight scheduled from Florida to Ohio. Ohio State’s spring semester starts Monday. It looks like Gibson’s plan to re-enroll is back on track.
Flight cancelled. Leaving Monday FL✈️OH..

If Gibson does re-enroll at Ohio State, he would be eligible to practice with Ohio State again in the spring. However, Gibson was not listed on Ohio State’s official roster as of Sunday morning.
Originally a dual-threat quarterback in the 2015 class, Gibson was set to make the transition to wide receiver in 2016. The Buckeyes just lost wideout Noah Brown, who declared for the NFL Draft on Saturday night.
