Ohio State cornerback heading to Auburn
Cornerback Jamel Dean, ruled medically ineligible this season at Ohio State, is headed to Auburn.
The four-star early enrollee out of Orlando, Fla., tweeted his plans on Friday after Buckeyes medical staff did not clear Dean for fall practice due to lingering complications from a serious knee injury suffered during his prep career.
God keeps blessing me and for that I’m thankful! I will be attending and playing football at Auburn University! I’m a tiger once again

Auburn must submit a waiver for Dean to play during the 2015 season. NCAA rules call for Dean to sit out his first year as a transfer.
