Former Buckeye Torrance Gibson Leaves His JUCO Team

Torrance Gibson is on the move again — or at least no longer on his current team.

After redshirting as a true freshman at Ohio State in 2015 and then serving a one-year suspension in 2016, Gibson left OSU with the intention of eventually playing quarterback for Luke Fickell at the University of Cincinnati. That never happened, and instead Gibson matriculated to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

According to the Biloxi Sun Herald, Gibson is still enrolled at MGCCC, but is no longer part of the team. Mississippi Gulf Coast has confirmed the news as well.

Gibson played in five games this season, passing for 542 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He also rushed for 321 yards.

One of the highest-rated recruits in the 2015 class, Gibson began his career at Ohio State as a quarterback, but was moved to receiver early in fall camp. He never played a down at Ohio State.

  1. This isn’t somebody seeking greener pastures. Unfortunately it’s a kid who keeps burning bridges.

  2. Why is it so often that when players transfer, seeking greener pastures, they discover there’s just as much manure on the other side of the fence, if not more?

      1. Torrence could have minded his business and developed into a really great player. Just seems like he wanted the Animal House version of BMOC status in modern society.

        Still hope the best for him.
