Jeff Greene to walk on at Ohio State

Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Jeff Greene will transfer and walk on at Ohio State, his high school coach told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday.

Greene left the Yellow Jackets in December in what was termed a mutual decision.

He finished the semester at Georgia Tech, Starr's Mill coach Chad Phillips told the newspaper. Phillips said he expects Greene to enroll at Ohio State this summer.

Greene, who will have to sit out in 2013 and has two seasons of eligibility remaining, led Georgia Tech wide receivers with 18 receptions for 284 yards last year, and he scored two touchdowns.

"At least he's moving on and going to try to get an education," Phillips told the Journal-Constitution.
