Former Buckeye Jayme Thompson headed to Indiana

Former Ohio State Buckeyes defensive back Jayme Thompson is headed to Indiana to play for the Hoosiers. Thompson announced his decision on his personal Twitter page.

A former four-star recruit out of Central Catholic High School in Toledo, Thompson missed all of his true freshman season with a broken ankle. He participated in spring practice, but chose to transfer to a different program and spent all of last season playing for Iowa Western Community College. As a result, he will be immediately eligible to play for Indiana this season.

Prior to committing to the Hoosiers, Thompson had also drawn interest from Penn State, Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia and Rutgers.

Instead, he will join an Indiana team that has shown slow improvement in four seasons under head coach Kevin Wilson, but still has not had a winning season since 2007 under former coach Bill Lynch and has not won a bowl game since 1991.

That said, when IU and Ohio State face off on October 3, there are sure to be at least some fireworks when Thompson lines up against his former teammates.
