The Carolina Panthers signed former Ohio State defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle as an undrafted free agent, Ohio State announced Saturday evening following the conclusion of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Sprinkle played at Ohio State for four seasons, ending his college career with 20 tackles in 28 games. 

He was on a Buckeye defensive line that held teams to fewer than three yards per rush last season, giving up an average of just 2.94 yards per carry. Only five teams in the nation held opponents to fewer than three yards per carry.

He also helped an Ohio State defense that finished last season with the sixth-fewest rushing yards allowed per game in the country.

Sprinkle was not invited to the NFL combine, but participated in Ohio State’s pro day on March 22.
