Former Defensive End to Transfer

John Owning of is reporting former Buckeye defensive end Noah Spence will be transferring to Eastern Kentucky.

A source close to the situation has told Football Insiders that former Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence will transfer to Eastern Kentucky for his senior season.

There were many like myself wondering what Noah was going to do especially after seeing he didn’t declare for the NFL Draft.

Walk Down Memory Lane

Junior defensive end Noah Spence was suppose to be a big part of the defensive line this season after he served his final two game suspension. He was suspended three games by the Big Then Conference after the Michigan State loss. When it came time for Noah to join his scarlet and gray teammates this unfortunately happened. Spence never got to join his teammates for their magic run this season. Ohio State stuck with Spence and helped him try to win his appeal to rejoin the team but the Big Ten ruled that he failed 2 drug tests and was banned from the league.

Noah’s final Buckeye Stats

Spence’s final numbers while wearing the Buckeye uniform was 62 tackles (31 solo and 31 assists), 15 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, 3 passes defended, and 1 forced fumble in only two seasons.

Final Thought

Ohio State did a great thing by standing by this young kid and helping him get the help he needed. Going to Eastern Kentucky was a shock only for the thought he was going to be a definite NFL Draft pick this year. Nice to see the choice that Noah Spence has made for the reasons of showing he has something to prove and he should earn a degree so no matter what happens on the gridiron he will come out a winner. Keep your head up young man go tear up that Ohio Valley conference and know that once a Buckeye always a Buckeye. Godspeed and good luck.
