Ohio State will be among the title favorites for the 2017 season, but the Buckeyes’ depth in the secondary will be a concern for Urban Meyer next fall.

Redshirt sophomore cornerback Joshua Norwood has decided to transfer from the program, according to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch.

According to May, Norwood will supposedly transfer to Georgia Southern. The former four-star prospect mainly contributed on special teams last season.

Urban Meyer and his staff have to replace corners Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley, who were both selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Buckeyes lost safety Malik Hooker to the NFL as he was also selected in the first round.

Ohio State has plenty of talent returning, but they will have some major questions in the secondary. They will certainly be challenged when Baker Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners visit Columbus during the second week of the season.
