A former Ohio State wide receiver is going to make the short drive from Columbus to Cincinnati to continue his career under head coach Luke Fickell and the Bearcats.

Garyn Prater announced via Twitter this week that he would be transferring to Cincinnati to complete his academic and athletic career. He spent the last two seasons with the Buckeyes.

“I have learned and experienced so many priceless things during my time at Ohio State,” Prater wrote. “To all my friends and teammates, I’m going to miss you all so much. These relationships will last a lifetime.

“But I am excited to announce the next chapter in my life. Next year I will be playing at the University of Cincinnati! We got little bro on the way too!!”

Prater will be joining his younger brother, Evan Prater, at Cincinnati. The younger Prater is a dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 recruiting class who has already committed to the Bearcats.

In two seasons with the Buckeyes, Prater appeared in three games, all in 2018. He caught one pass for 13 yards. But at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, the receiver could be an impact player for the Bearcats in the future.
