Ohio State Offensive Lineman Enokk Vimahi Enters Transfer Portal

Ohio State graduate offensive lineman Enokk Vimahi reportedly entered the transfer portal on Tuesday — just one day before the spring portal window closes — after five seasons with the Buckeyes. He has one season of collegiate eligibility remaining. 

Vimahi (6-4, 310), a former four-star prospect out of Kahuku, Hawaii, appeared in 35 games and made two starts across his four-year Ohio State career, his lone starts coming in the Buckeyes’ 2023 Cotton Bowl loss to Missouri and home loss to Michigan in 2022. 

He lined up primarily at left and right guard, often sitting behind two-year starters Donovan Jackson and Matthew Jones, a reality that had Vimahi in a reserve role for his entire Ohio State career. Vimahi was once again slotted to be a reserve this season at right guard behind projected starter Josh Fryar.

Vimahi entered the Ohio State program out of Kahuka in 2019 as a touted four-star prospect, where he was the nation’s 124th-best player, seventh-best offensive guard and No. 2 overall player in Hawaii. He chose to play for the Buckeyes over schools such as Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Washington. 

Vimahi is the fourth Buckeye to enter the transfer portal during the spring transfer window, which opened on April 16 and closes on Wednesday. Safety Cedrick Hawkins and running back Dallan Hayden both officially entered the portal on April 16 — and have since found new homes at UCF and Colorado, respectively — while safety Ja’Had Carter transferred on Sunday.
