Ohio State backup QB enters transfer portal
Ohio State backup quarterback JP Andrade has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch reported the news.
Andrade was a walk-on for the Buckeyes, joining the team in 2019. He turned down multiple scholarship opportunities to suit up for Ohio State, but now he’s decided to enter his name into the transfer portal and explore opportunities outside of Columbus.
A California native, Andrade was an Academic All-B1G selection in 2020 and was a two-time Ohio State scholar-athlete.
Utilizing a redshirt year and with the COVID-19 waiver, Andrade would have 3 years of eligibility remaining at his next destination.
Ohio State finished the 2021 season with an 11-2 record, defeating Utah in the Rose Bowl Game on New Year’s Day. It was the first time under head coach Ryan Day the Buckeyes did not appear in the College Football Playoff.
