Kevin Feder, who never rose into the playing rotation on the offensive line at Ohio State, announced on social media Thursday he intends to transfer after spring semester. He is the second reserve offensive lineman to leave the Buckeyes since the new year started.
From Ramsey, N.J., the 6-foot-9 tackle is a redshirt sophomore who expects to earn his degree in May, and thus will be able to play this year for another Football Bowl Subdivision team if he so desires. He has two years of playing eligibility remaining and apparently has not decided on a destination.
“I will be graduating with a sports industry degree with plans on transferring to a different university,” Feder posted on Twitter. “As of today, I am reopening my recruitment and looking for a new place to expand on my football career as well as my academics.
“I would like to thank coach (Urban) Meyer, coach (Greg Studrawa of the offensive line) and the rest of the coaching staff for the opportunity to play at this prestigious university.”
Feder is the second offensive lineman to announce his intention to leave OSU since the Buckeyes’ win over Southern California in the Cotton Bowl on Dec.29. Redshirt freshman Jack Wohlabaugh said on Jan. 4 he was transferring to Duke.
