Suspended Ohio State WR Torrance Gibson to enroll at Mississippi JUCO
Urban Meyer said that the plan was for Torrance Gibson to return to the program after he served his season-long suspension.
Well, that plan is no longer.
On Tuesday, Mississippi Golf Coast Community College announced that Gibson signed a letter of intent to play there next year:

And from the look of it, Gibson will switch back to his old position of quarterback. That’s what he initially came to Ohio State as when he was a four-star recruit in 2015.
But Gibson made the switch to wideout in an effort to contribute earlier with Ohio State set at quarterback. He made significant strides in his year at the position, which included an impressive performance in the spring game.
Then he was suspended for the entire 2016 season after violating the university’s student conduct code, which Meyer disagreed with.
UPDATE: According to Cleveland.com, the junior college letter of intent doesn’t have an impact on the Division I level. That would allow Gibson to stay at Ohio State or transfer to another Division I school.
