Ohio State LB officially enters transfer portal after being dismissed from team
K’Vaughan Pope, former Ohio State linebacker, has entered the transfer portal.
Pope, on Saturday night, was visibly frustrated as he was throwing his gloves into the crowd, taking off his jersey, and ultimately was escorted to the locker room.
While in the locker room, Pope tweeted about his frustrations along with some NSFW tweets.
I think K'Vaughan Pope just quit the team in the middle of the game.
