As the Ohio State Buckeyes prepare for the College Football Playoff, Emeka Egbuka is approached by other schools regarding a transfer.
Emeka Egbuka hasn’t taken the bait, at least not yet. Agboka He doesn’t want to be a distraction as his team, the Ohio State Buckeyes, prepares for a tough game against the number one team in the country, the Georgia Bulldogs.
Igbuka said the schools have approached him about moving away from Columbus, but he is still happy at Ohio State. It’s an odd timing for rival schools to swing at Egbuka and the Buckeyes, especially when they play CFP on New Year’s Eve.
Now, it’s important to note that there is no real way to force “gamification” in the NIL era. It happens everywhere, and Ohio State isn’t the only victim here. If anything, smaller schools — even those at Power 5 conferences — get to grips with this a lot.
Ohio State Buckeyes player Emeka Egbuka will not be transferring
Emeka Egbuka is only a sophomore and has been vital to Ohio State’s passing game this season. This year, he has 66 receptions for 1,039 yards and nine touchdowns. It is important to note that this is the same offense that marks Marvin Harrison Jr.
Having CJ Stroud certainly helps, but it wouldn’t be wise to go to Egbuka considering he is one of OSU’s main targets. He’s maxing out his exposure, and if all goes well in the next few years, he could be a wide receiver target in the NFL Draft.
Do Buckeyes fans have anything to worry about? Egbuka didn’t say he was happy at Ohio State. Instead, he stated that he was “satisfied.” Word choice is everything in this script.
Ryan Day has a lot to make up for on the recruiting trail after losing to Michigan. He may have to make sure none of his players leave Columbus either.
