Confirmation of last month’s report from the Orlando Sentinel‘s Edgar Thompson, former Ohio State linebacker Teradia Mitchell announced he was moving to Florida for the final season of his collegiate career.
Mitchell, a former five-star contender from Virginia Beach, has recorded 63 tackles, seven tackles for loss and one broken pass in 43 games for the Buckeyes over the past five seasons.
He was the starting linebacker and a team captain heading into the 2021 season but lost his job mid-season. Ohio State’s defense struggled and mostly played special teams at the track.
Despite this, Mitchell returned to Columbus that season in hopes of winning a national championship, but a hamstring injury limited him to just four games, including just one snap on defense and three appearances on special teams.
That allowed him to count towards a redshirt that year and play one more season, which is why he put his name on the transfer portal on Dec. 5, though he stayed with the Buckeyes for the Peach Bowl.

Mitchell is one of seven Ohio State players to enter the portal and join the walk-on wide receivers since the end of the regular season Corban Cleveland and Blaize Exlinelong snapper Mason Arnoldcorner kick Lloyd McFarquhar and collateral Jantzen Dunn and Jaylen Johnson.
He and Dunn, who announced his commitment to Kentucky last month, are the only former Buckeyes to have announced their transfer target so far.
