Ohio State Linebacker Transferring To Louisville

Well, maybe this explains last night.

In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Ohio State linebacker Jordan Whiting announced that he was transferring to Louisville to finish out his college career.

Buckeye nation these last few years have been the most memorable years of my life. It was truly a blessing to have been a part of this city!

Sometimes in life there comes a time where u have to make a decision about what's best for u and ur career and what u want out of life

So in saying that, as of 111:55am I recieved an important phone call and after spring quarter ends on June 1st

I will be attending University of Louisville and will be a Cardinal for the remainder of my college career as a student and athlete!

Thank you all for ur support and love. I thank Coach Tressel and Mr. Gene Smith for the opportunity, however my time here has come to an end

I also want to thank Coach Strong and the entire Louisville staff for giving me an opportunity!

Whiting was a four-star recruit and regarded by many to be the best player in the state when he was a senior at Trinity High School in 2009. He ultimately chose Ohio State over Louisville and Kentucky.

As a sophomore in 2011, Whiting was suspended for one game for being a part of the group of players who were caught trading team memorabilia for tattoos. He not record a tackle and figured to be buried on the linebacker depth chart heading into his junior season.

As it stands, Whiting will only have one year of eligibility after sitting out the 2012 season since he redshirted his first year at Ohio State. However, there is apparently a chance that he could be granted a medical redshirt, and thus have sixth year of eligibility.

Whiting joins Florida transfers Gerald Christian and Robert Clark, and Tennessee transfer Matt Milton as former four-star recruits who are transferring to Louisville.
