    The New Jersey native, who was a four-star recruit in the 2022 class, brings three years of eligibility to Ohio State after an impressive freshman season at Ole Miss in which he started 10 games, made 37 total tackles and five pass breakups and was named an honorable mention Freshman All-American by College Football News.

    • On Ole Miss transfer CB Davison Igbinosun, Day says "he wants to compete. ... He did a good job establishing himself early on." Day says "it's gonna be a good competition, I've been impressed with the offseason that some of these guys have had."

    • On Igbinosun's size, Day says his physicality really stands out and that his length allows him to cover more ground.

    • On Igbinosun, Knowles says "he looked good out there today. ... He has real length and got his hand on a lot of balls." Knowles says he has "that (New) Jersey toughness" and will bring "a lot of competition to that position."

    • Since he arrived on campus in early February, Igbinosun said he’s “felt very comfortable” being with the Buckeyes. He also said Ohio State’s players have welcomed him into The Brotherhood with open arms, which he has appreciated. “Ohio State has been very easy. It feels like home.”
    • As a transfer, Igbinosun understands that he has to work harder to carve a role for himself at Ohio State. Still, he believes his play will “speak for itself” as he proves to be a ball-hawk cornerback that feeds off physicality and getting his hands on the football.”
    • Igbinosun said his first year at Ole Miss has prepared him for what competition and a fight for playing time will look like at Ohio State. “Coming in as a freshman last year (with the Rebels) was the hardest thing I’ve done in my entire life, so moving forward, I know nothing else will be as hard.”
    • Igbinosun said Ole Miss defensive coordinator Chris Partridge leaving the program after the 2022 season led him to the transfer portal after his freshman year. “I felt like that was an opportunity to explore other options.”
    • Igbinosun’s first option for where to transfer was Ohio State because he’s always wanted to play for the Buckeyes: “Ohio State was the place I’ve always wanted to be since I was a little boy… deep down, I knew I wanted to be at Ohio State from the jump.”
