Two-Time All-SEC Running Back Quinshon Judkins Transferring To Ohio State

Former Ole Miss running back Quinshon Judkins has announced that he is transferring to Ohio State.

Judkins just finished up his sophomore season in Oxford, rushing for 1,158 yards and 15 touchdowns on 271 attempts in 2023.

As a true freshman last year, Judkins exploded onto the college football scene with 1,567 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns. He was named the Southeastern Conference’s Freshman of the Year for his considerable efforts.

Judkins is a two-time First-Team All-SEC performer, totaling 2,725 yards rushing in his career to this point. He has 14 100-yard rushing games in his 26 career appearances. He has scored at least one touchdown in 21 of those 26 games.

The Buckeyes have lost three running backs from the 2023 team, as Miyan Williams has entered the 2024 NFL Draft and Evan Pryor and Chip Trayanum have both entered the transfer portal. So adding a player from the portal was imperative, but Ohio State has done more than just “add a player,” as they have landed the premier running back available in the portal.

If OSU returning starter TreVeyon Henderson opts to come back for his senior season at Ohio State, the Buckeyes would arguably have the top tailback tandem in the nation. Henderson rushed for 926 yards and 11 touchdowns this past season, and has 2,745 career yards rushing and 32 total rushing touchdowns.

Ohio State has recently added Kansas State starting quarterback Will Howard out of the portal, as well as Alabama starting center Seth McLaughlin, and Ohio University starting tight end Will Kacmarek. That will not be the end of the additions, however.

With the Buckeyes breaking in a new starting quarterback in 2024, adding a player of Judkins’ experience and caliber would go a long way towards making it an easy transition for whoever wins the job in fall camp.

Buckeye Huddle will have much more on this story in the coming days.
