I’m from New Jersey, Four Star Recruit The 2022 class brought him a three-year entitlement to Ohio State University after an impressive freshman season at Ole Miss.
Igvinothan is now expected to start opposite Denzel Burke in 2023, competing with Jordan Hancock, Jay Brown, and the rest of Ohio State’s cornerbacks. The Buckeyes were set to have only six scholarship cornerbacks prior to the transfer.
Igbinosun was the only uncommitted player in the top 20 of 247Sports’ 2023 Transfer Portal Rankings. He was named by 247Sports to enter a portal into the winter window next to Travis Hunter (Jackson to Colorado), Denver Harris (Texas A&M to LSU) and Fentrel Cypress (Virginia to Florida). Ranked as the second best cornerback.
He’s the second defensive back to move to Ohio this offseason, along with former Syracuse safety Jahad Carter. He is the sixth overall Buckeyes transfer since December, joining former Oregon State quarterback Tristan Gebbia, Monroe, Louisiana offensive lineman Victor Cutler, and Arizona State long snapper John. Ferman joined Kent State kicker Casey Magyar (preferred walk-on).
