    Buckeyes add transfer defensive back
    After a tough stretch towards the conclusion of the season for the defensive secondary, Ohio State wasted no time adding to the group coached by Perry Eliano. The Buckeyes dipped into the transfer portal and were able to secure a commitment from now former Syracuse safety Ja’Had Carter.

    Carter, the top-ranked safety in the transfer portal per 247Sports, has been a staple in the Orange defense over the past three seasons. The Virginia native played in 30 games over the three year span and racked up five interceptions, seven pass deflections, and 136 total tackles with the program.

    It’s a key addition to Jim Knowles’ three-safety look that will be without Ronnie Hickman, who is NFL bound, and Tanner McCallister due to graduation. There is also a possibility that the Buckeyes are without Lathan Ransom at the position, depending on if he decides to move on and try his hand at the next level.

    Carter is likely a shoe in replacement for one of the three mentioned above, and he will carry a respectable profile to Columbus with him that includes two accolades in specific. The latest Buckeye is a former freshman All- American just a few years ago, and was also named as an honorable mention on the All-ACC team this past season.

    Ohio State Transfer Portal Additions

    Former Syracuse safety Ja’Had Carter: A former three-star recruit and three-year playmaker for Syracuse, Carter has played 22 games across those three seasons, totaling 136 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions, seven passes deflected and two forced fumbles. Carter was named a freshman All-American in 2020. He started for the Orange and their impressive defense this season. Carter will have multiple years of eligibility remaining at Ohio State, meaning he can impress and move on to the NFL or become a mainstay in an improving Buckeyes secondary for the next couple of years.

    • Day said the addition of Syracuse transfer safety Ja'Had Carter is exciting for the defense because of Jim Knowles' three-safety defense that relies heavily on the position.
