Former Ohio State Offensive Lineman Ben Christman Transfers To Kentucky

By May 7, 2023 (3:57 pm)Football

Former Ohio State offensive lineman Ben Christman, who entered the transfer portal on April 26, announced Sunday that he will transfer to Kentucky.

Christman arrived at Ohio State in the 2021 recruiting class as a four-star prospect out of Richfield (Ohio) Revere. He redshirted his first season with the program and appeared in just one game this past season, getting some late snaps in the Buckeyes’ blowout win over Indiana on Nov. 12.

With Donovan Jackson and Matthews Jones both returning as starting guards this season for Ohio State, Christman was left to compete for a backup job entering his third season with the program. Instead, he’ll now have three seasons of eligibility to use with the Wildcats and head coach Mark Stoops.

Christman is one of four Buckeyes to enter the portal since spring practice concluded, joining kicker Jake Seibert and wide receivers Caleb Burton and Kaleb Brown. The latter two have already found their transfer destinations, with Burton transferring to Auburn and Brown taking his services to Iowa.
