Ohio State linebacker Jordan Whiting will not be a Buckeye any longer. The fourth year Junior officially announced on twitter Thursday that he is planning to transfer to Louisville to finish off his college career.
Transfer rules dictate that Whiting will need to sit out the 2012 season for Louisville, so he is going to get only a single year of playing time with the Cardinals. He had occasionally troubled times with the Buckeyes so it's not incredibly surprising to see him switch gears, and schools, in the last few years of his college career. It makes even more sense since Louisville is Whiting's home town.
Whiting is the seventh player to leave the OSU football squad since the hiring of Urban Meyer as their new head coach, though he left of his own accord.
