Ohio State H-back Eric Glover-Williams is no longer part of the OSU football program. An Ohio State spokesman confirmed the news, but did not provide a reason for Glover-Williams’ departure. The news was first reported by Austin Ward of Land of 10.
Glover-Williams, a junior H-back from Canton McKinley, struggled to find a home at Ohio State. He began his career as a safety, but was quickly passed over in the spring of 2016 when Damon Webb moved from cornerback to safety. Glover-Wlliams then moved from safety to slot receiver this offseason.
He was unable to make his way up the depth chart at H-back, where the Buckeyes have Parris Campbell, K.J. Hill, and Demario McCall ahead of him.
Glover-Williams did not travel with the team to Bloomington.
He played in 12 games last season, mostly on special teams, finishing with six tackles.
