COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Matthew Baldwin, the Ohio State quarterback who was expected to back up the highly touted Justin Fields this fall, said he intends to transfer.
The redshirt freshman released a statement on Twitter on Thursday saying he feels it would be better for him to move on after his first productive spring practice since rehabbing from a knee injury.
"At the same time, spring was a tough time for me personally," he said in the Twitter post. "My family and I have prayed a lot and talked a lot about where I belong and what it best for me. I want everyone to know this isn't done out of anger or frustration, but I'm not just a football player."
