Ohio State Defensive Lineman Noah Potter Enters Transfer Portal

Ohio State fourth-year junior defensive lineman Noah Potter has entered the transfer portal. The news was first reported by Matt Zenitz of

An Ohio State spokesman has confirmed the transfer.

Potter missed the 2021 season due to injury but rebounded well this spring while playing both defensive tackle and defensive end. He capped his spring camp with six tackles and two sacks in last weekend’s Ohio State spring game.

Potter played in four games in 2020 and four games in 2019 as a true freshman, tallying three tackles in his career.

He came to Ohio State from Mentor High School in Mentor, Ohio where he was a 4-star defensive end prospect in the 2019 class.

Potter is the second OSU defensive lineman to transfer in the last week. Redshirt sophomore Jacolbe Cowan entered the portal five days earlier. Potter is also the fourth scholarship transfer overall for the Buckeyes this spring, joining Cowan and defensive backs Lejond Cavazos and Bryson Shaw.

With this latest departure, the Buckeyes are now at 86 scholarship players, which is one over the 85 scholarship limit that they’ll need to be at by the start of fall camp.
