Ohio State walk-on graduate receiver Sam Wiglusz is entering the transfer portal. The news was first reported by 247Sports’ Patrick Murphy.
Wiglusz caught two passes for 21 yards in this past weekend’s OSU spring game. He has long been a reliable worker in the Ohio State receiver room and was always earning positive mentions from his coaches and teammates.
Wiglusz (5-11 189) joined the Buckeye football team in the summer of 2018. He eventually lost his black stripe as a true freshman between the first and second games of the season that year.
Wiglusz saw action in six games last year, which included snaps on offense in wins against Akron, Rutgers, and Michigan State. He caught two passes for 14 yards last year, with both catches coming against the Spartans. Wiglusz played in one game in 2020 and three games in 2019. He caught one pass in 2019 against Rutgers.
In last year’s spring game, he caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from walk-on quarterback Jagger Laroe in the game’s final seconds.
Thanks to the free year of eligibility that the NCAA granted players in 2020, Wiglusz still has two years of eligibility remaining.
Prior to walking on at Ohio State, Wiglusz was a Second-Team All-State selection as a senior at Brecksville High School in Brecksville, Ohio. He caught 80 passes for 1,432 yards and 13 touchdowns that year. He also intercepted four passes. As a junior, he caught 19 touchdown passes and added 49 tackles. He was also an All-Conference selection in both baseball and basketball.
In his career at Brecksville, Wiglusz started for three years and compiled 182 receptions for 3,129 yards and 37 touchdowns.
