Not sure how that makes sense? Not to mentioned he is listed as ONLY 6ft! Maybe he is making the move for money? My concern would be he recognizes there isn't a QB on the roster that can get him the ball?  Hope I'm wrong but the future looks grim for YSU with the mass exodus of talent via the portal.  We have turned in to a feeder program for the big boys to add depth.

Like I said with NIL, the transfer rules, it will be tough to keep core guys. In this case their was a YSU connection at Michigan a with our lack of established QB it truly does make sense.

It makes sense if he's getting paid. It makes sense since we continue to recruit and field D2/3 quarterbacks. However, I could be wrong but I don't see him lighting up the big house on the field.

I have read that was quoted somewhere about minimum nil $$ for Ohio State players were $38k. We really couldn’t blame the fcs player to move up the fbs for nil $$ alone, not to mention getting possible playing time for big time football.
The downside, obviously would be the lack of playing time (became a bench rider) minimizing the possibility of exposure to reach the next level.

Either way, I wish nothing but the best for the young man to receive an opportunity to get a scholarship in addition to nil $$ and to be part of the national championship program.
