Thompson set to transfer

Post spring game attrition is something that impacts most college football programs on a yearly basis and on Wednesday morning BuckeyeGrove.com has learned that Ohio State will be losing a member of its defensive secondary. Redshirt freshman safety Jayme Thompson has asked for, and will receive, his transfer request from the Ohio State football program and will pursue opportunities elsewhere.

"We would like to thank The Ohio State University for the opportunities that they have given my son, Jayme, and our family," said Deon Thompson, the safeties' father. "Jayme is leaving the program in good academic standing and we look forward to the next chapter of Jayme's education and football playing career."

Thompson took a redshirt this fall at Ohio State and after potentially sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules, would still have three years of eligibility remaining. The option also exists for Thompson to apply for a waiver to play immediately given the timing of the transfer.

The former Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic standout was a four-star recruit in the 2013 class according to Rivals.com. He was ranked the No. 204 prospect nationally, the No. 19 safety prospect in the nation, and the No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Ohio. As a senior at Central Catholic he led the Fighting Irish to a state championship win over Trotwood-Madison.

At this time, the family is not discussing potential transfer destinations and once all of the necessary paperwork is completed, they will evaluate all possible options.
