Redshirt freshman quarterback Matthew Baldwin’s transfer from Ohio State is now official.
After taking to twitter to announce his transfer on April 18, the now former Buckeye stated Tuesday that his transfer destination would be TCU, per reports by 247Sports.
At the time he entered the transfer portal, Baldwin cited a desire to be closer to home as his motivation for leaving Ohio State.
“My family and I have prayed and talked a lot about where I belong and what is best for me,” Baldwin said in the April 18 twitter announcement. “In the end, we’d feel it’d be better for me to step away from Ohio State.”
TCU is located in Fort Worth, Texas, a three-hour drive from Baldwin’s hometown in Austin, Texas.
Baldwin will apply for immediate eligibility with the Horned Frogs.
Baldwin concludes his Ohio State career before taking a single snap. At the 2019 Spring Game he finished 20-for-36 for 246 yards through the air, with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
While sophomore quarterback Justin Fields appeared to lead for the starting job at the position for the Buckeyes, he and Baldwin were considered in open competition by head coach Ryan Day.
Should he be granted immediate eligibility, he’ll have four seasons available to play at TCU.
