The Ohio State Buckeyes added depth at running back Sunday as Oklahoma transfer Trey Sermon announced he would play in Columbus next season.
The 6-foot, 216-pound Sermon, who’s from Marietta, Ga., shared a photo of himself in an Ohio State uniform on Twitter with no accompanying caption, but the meaning was clear. His decision came eight days after he announced he was leaving Oklahoma after three seasons.
Sermon ran 54 times for 385 yards last season. He was limited to 10 games because of a knee injury. The previous season, Sermon led the Sooners with 947 yards on 164 carries, earning an All-Big Ten honorable mention. He ranked second on the team with 744 rushing yards as a freshman.
