Georgia Tech's leading receiver transferring to Ohio State
[dropcap]J[/dropcap]eff Greene, Georgia Tech’s leading wide receiver from last season, will transfer to Ohio State.
Greene (6-4, 210) would’ve been a junior this season but was removed from the team in December. He finished out the semester at Tech and is expected to enroll at Ohio State this summer as a walk-on, his high school coach told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“At least he’s moving on and going to try to get an education,” Starrs Mill High School coach Chad Phillips said.
In 2012, Greene led the Yellow Jackets with 18 catches for 284 receiving yards. As a true freshman in 2011, he played in 12 games as a backup receiver but did not catch a pass.
Greene has not used his redshirt year. He will be forced to sit out the 2013 season due to NCAA transfer rules, and has two seasons of eligibility after that.
A 3-star recruit in the 2011 class, Greene originally chose Georgia Tech over Cincinnati, Mississippi State and South Florida.
