Former Ohio State LB Dallas Gant finds new team in hometown Toledo Rockets

Dallas Gant

Former Buckeyes LB Dallas Gant has been in the transfer portal since the middle of last September trying to find a new home.

He didn’t have to look to far.

He will return to Northwest Ohio and finish his college football career in his hometown at the University of Toledo.

As a player for St. John’s Jesuit, Gant was ranked as the No. 10 outside linebacker in the country according to the 2018 247 Sports rankings.

Gant really never had a chance to play with the Buckeyes as injuries at inopportune times allowed younger players to move past him on the depth chart.
