Ohio State defensive back Sevyn Banks won’t be headed to the NFL next season and he’s now looking for a new college to call home.
While Ohio State fans knew that star defensive back Sevyn Banks was ‘moving on’ from Ohio State, it’s looking like he won’t be headed to the NFL just yet. That’s because Banks just announced on his Twitter account that he’s entered the transfer portal and removed his name from the draft.
Banks was expected to be a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, but injuries really hampered him from having a big 2021 campaign. Now, he’ll look to ball out this upcoming fall to help his stock, but he’ll be doing so outside of Columbus.
Sevyn Banks enters the transfer portal and will surely pick up loads of attention
Banks unfortunately was dealing with a knee injury throughout the season, limiting him to only four games in 2021. A 6-foot-1, 200-pound cornerback, Banks indeed entered the season with plenty of hype after big campaigns in both 2019 and 2020.
For Banks, he has already graduated from Ohio State, as he earned his degree in communications back in December. He’s got one more year of NCAA eligibility left. While he did leave the door open for a possible return to Ohio State in his tweet announcing things, fans aren’t optimistic he will end up back on the roster for 2022.
Banks figures to receive plenty of new attention now that he’s in the portal. Banks will look to have a big season before hoping to hear his name called early in the 2023 draft.
