Ohio State Senior Wide Receiver Julian Fleming Enters Transfer Portal

Another Ohio State player has entered the transfer portal the same day starting quarterback Kyle McCord did, with senior wide receiver Julian Fleming announcing on Twitter that he will be leaving the Buckeyes with one more season of eligibility.

“I want to thank Ohio State and all the amazing people who were a part of my rollercoaster of a journey,” it read. “It was an amazing four years and I have built relationships that will last a lifetime with so many of my fellow players as well as coaches. Playing in Columbus has truly been one of the greatest times of my life and I want to take the time and thank the entire Buckeye nation for all the support! With that being said I am entering my name into the transfer portal for a final year.”

Fleming was fourth on the team in receiving with 26 catches for 270 yards and no touchdowns to his name. His stats were similar to freshman Carnell Tate’s, who didn’t get nearly as much time on the field but brought in 17 catches for 229 yards and a touchdown.

With Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka both expected to leave for the NFL, Tate is the only receiver returning who had more than 10 catches in 2023.

Fleming won’t be available for the Buckeyes in the Cotton Bowl, stripping the depth chart further than it already was for the game against No. 9 Missouri before there have been any decisions made about players who might opt out of the game.

He leaves Ohio State with a total of 80 receptions for 990 yards and seven touchdowns in his four seasons with the Buckeyes.
