Former Ohio State wide receiver L’Christian “Blue” Smith has found a new home, announcing on Thursday via Twitter that he was transferring to the University of Cincinnati.
A little under two months ago, it was reported that Smith was leaving the Ohio State football program.
Buckeye head coach Ryan Day confirmed the news at the time, stating that Smith left voluntarily.
“He has voluntarily left the program,” Day said. “We’re going to support him. We’re going to keep him on scholarship through the end of the semester and give him all the resources he needs moving forward and support him moving forward.”
Smith is the second Ohio State receiver to transfer to Cincinnati this spring, joining former walk-on Garyn Prater on the journey down 71 South.
Bearcats’ head coach Luke Fickell also received a commitment from 2020 4-star Cincinnati (Wyoming) quarterback Evan Prater two weeks ago. Evan is the younger brother of Garyn.
