Dallas Gant Hits the Transfer Portal

The start of the season does not mean the end of the transfer portal news in this new day and age of football and we have learned on Wednesday that Ohio State senior linebacker Dallas Gant has entered his name into the portal with the desire to transfer out of the Ohio State program.

The Toledo (Ohio) native has played in all three games for the Buckeyes this season in limited action and has been credited with 10 tackles throughout the year.

Gant was a four-star linebacker coming out of St. John’s Jesuit in Toledo and part of Ohio State’s haul of linebackers that included Teradja Mitchell and K’Vaughan Pope. The trio found themselves stuck behind the linebacker group that included Baron Browning, Tuf Borland and Pete Werner and saw limited action throughout their careers due to the logjam.

Over parts of four years with the Buckeyes, Gant totaled 54 tackles for the Buckeyes, 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in limited action.

Gant’s hope was that this would be his year but an offseason foot injury limited the talented linebacker in spring and due to that lost important time in front of the coaches as the gap between Gant and younger linebackers shrank.
