Former Ohio State wide receiver Torrance Gibson has committed to joining Luke Fickell at Cincinnati and will return to playing quarterback. After his two years with the Buckeyes didn't work out following a redshirt year and a university-issued suspension, Gibson has enrolled at Cincinnati State to get an associate's degree that could make him eligible this season. "I'm confident about what is happening in the Queen City," Gibson told ESPN. "I'm just ready to roll."

Another Ohio State defensive back is heading to the NFL, and for the second season in a row, the secondary will have to replace three starters who had eligibility left. Marshon Lattimore added his name to the list on Wednesday, joining Malik Hooker and Gareon Conley after the cornerback made the most out of his health and a chance to start for the Buckeyes. Lattimore is Mel Kiper's No. 1 ranked CB after intercepting 4 passes this season.
