Former Ohio State Wide Receiver Caleb Burton Lands At Auburn

Former Ohio State wide receiver Caleb Burton, who entered the transfer portal on April 25, has found his next destination, announcing on Saturday that he will transfer to Auburn.

Burton did not appear in a game last season for Ohio State, leaving him with four seasons of eligibility with the Eagles. He began picking up some steam in practice near the end of his freshman season, losing his black stripe on Dec. 20, but was unable to catch on in the Buckeyes’ loaded receiver room.

A four-star prospect out of Austin (Texas) Lake Travis, Burton was the No. 132 overall prospect and No. 22 wide receiver in his class. Burton will have an opportunity to see the field early at Auburn, as the Eagles’ receiving corps did not see a single receiver surpass 500 receiving yards last season.

Burton is the second receiver from Ohio State’s 2022 recruiting class to enter the portal along with Kaleb Brown, who announced Thursday that he will transfer to Iowa.

Kojo Antwi and Kyion Grayes still remain from the class at wide receiver, though all have been pushed by the incoming freshmen receivers, including Carnell Tate, Noah Rogers and Bryson Rodgers, not to mention the arrival this summer of Brandon Inniss.
