Davison Igbinosun

Ohio State bolstered its cornerback roster by recruiting the best players in the transfer portal.

Davidson Igbinothan, named by 247Sports as the 10th best player to enter the transfer window in the winter transfer window, announced his commitment to Ohio State on Tuesday, becoming the Buckeyes’ No. Six transfer players.

Igbinosun selected the Buckeyes after visiting Ohio State on Saturday. Tennessee was initially rumored to be his committed frontrunner, and Igbinosun also visited UCLA and Michigan, but he ultimately settled on a Buckeye.

Igbinosun file

  • year: second grade
  • size: 6-2/185
  • Location: carbon fiber
  • School: Missy (2022)
  • statistics: 37 tackles, 5 PBUs in 13 games (10 starts) in 2022

The New Jersey native, a four-star recruit in the Class of 2022, brings three years of eligibility to Ohio State after an impressive freshman season at Ole Miss in which he started 10 games , combined for 37 tackles and five fumbles, and was named an honorable All-American by the College Football News.

Igbinosun is now expected to start against Denzel Burke in 2023 with Jordan Hancock, Jyaire Brown and the rest of Ohio State’s cornerbacks. Regardless of who ends up winning that game, the addition of Igbinosun provides a key boost to Ohio State’s cornerback depth, as the Buckeyes will have just six scholarship cornerbacks before his move.

Before committing, Igbinosun was the only uncommitted player in 247Sports’ top 20 transfer portal rankings for 2023. He was ranked by 247Sports as the fourth-best cornerback to enter the portal during the winter transfer window, behind only Travis Hunter (Jackson State to Colorado State), Denver Harris (Texas A&M to Colorado State). LSU) and Fentrel Cypress (Virginia to Florida).

He’s the second defensive back to move to Ohio State this offseason, along with former Syracuse safety Jahad Carter. He is the Buckeyes’ sixth overall transfer since December, joining former Oregon State quarterback Tristan Gebbia, Louisiana State Monroe offensive lineman Victor Cutler, Arizona State Flute Hand John Fairman and Kent State kicker Casey Magyar (preferred backup).
