My column: Transfers are becoming more prevalent in college sports, and that’s a good thing

Recently Ohio State football has seen a number of players announce that they were leaving the program. Wide receiver Jameson Williams is moving on to Alabama, Max Wray is headed west to Colorado, and yesterday Tyreke Johnson announced he is entering the transfer portal. College athletics has changed dramatically even from what we saw five years ago when it comes to transfers.

Some transfer moves are met with vitriol from some fans — shouldn’t be happening no matter the circumstances — let alone in the midst of a pandemic.
