Offensive lineman Matthew Burrell announced Wednesday that he is transferring from Ohio State.
Burrell is a redshirt junior who was in the top-100 recruiting rankings for the 2015 class when he signed with the Buckeyes.
“I am thankful for everything this amazing university has done for me,” Burrell wrote on Instagram. “Being a Buckeye is a once in a lifetime opportunity on the field and off. That being said, and after prayer and thought, I will be transferring from OSU.”
Maybe Portland could get its guards going by using someone other than Davis’ man to screen for them. That’s what they did to generate this clutch McCollum 3-pointer:
Although it isn’t clear why Burrell decided to leave, he was not a starter in 2017 and only saw sparing game action after guard Branden Bowen was injured. Burrell played in 13 games during his redshirt freshman season.
The Buckeyes lost left tackle Jamarco Jones and center Billy Price to the NFL draft, but are bringing back Bowen, guards Michael Jordan and Demetrius Knox as well as tackle Isaiah Prince among the starters from last season.
The charges of harm to a public servant, eluding police and resisting arrest have been dropped, according to the report, quoting a Broward state’s attorney spokesman as saying, “There was a possible discrepancy regarding the initial estimated speed, but there is no doubt that the defendant was driving recklessly. The other charges were declined, not filed, due to insufficient evidence.’’
Anderson now faces one misdemeanor count of reckless driving. Anderson also is facing charges from an arrest last spring for resisting arrest at a concert in May 2017. A hearing for that trial recently was postponed to Aug. 6.
He could be disciplined by the NFL under the league’s personal conduct policy. Anderson last season had 63 receptions and led the Jets with 941 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
