Iowa redshirt freshman RB C.J. Hilliard has transferred to Ohio.

Hilliard is from Cincinnati and the desolate, corn-filled wasteland of Iowa proved to be too far from home. With the transfer to Ohio, he needs to sit out the 2014 season. He'll have three years of eligibility left when he returns. The 5-foot-10, 195-pounder was a three-star recruit. Head coach Frank Solich commented on the transfer, saying that it was "good to have [Hilliard] aboard."

Iowa redshirt freshman RB C.J. Hilliard has decided to transfer closer to home.

Hilliard's home is Cincinnati, OH, but the Bearcats did not offer a scholarship to the 3-star recruit out of high school. Multiple other school in Ohio did, however. Hilliard redshirted his only season with the Hawkeyes.

Ohio junior TE Troy Mangen will likely miss the 2015 season with a knee injury.

Head coach Frank Solich said that Mangens' knee injury "appears to be a season-ending" one. The injury occurred on Tuesday and the junior was spotted on crutches with a wrap and brace around his knee during Thursday's practice. He was a probable starter for the Bobcats and caught 19 passes for 147 yards last season.

Ohio TE Keith Heitzman, who transferred after graduating from Michigan, told the Columbus Dispatch Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh asked fifth year players to audition for their spot on the team.

"Obviously, Harbaugh coming in was going to change things at Michigan — do things his way," Heitzman said. "But I didn’t know if I wanted to try out. That definitely took me off-guard. I was bummed out." Two other fifth-year graduates transferred to other programs, quarterback Russell Bellomy and running back Jutise Hayes. A few weeks ago, Harbaugh responded to criticisms made by now Texas Tech defensive lineman Ondre Pipkins, who accused Harbaugh and his staff of pushing for Pipkins to sign an injury waiver, ending his career. We have no clue how prevalent this kind of procedure is.

Ohio redshirt junior CB Devin Bass "shows the ability to shutdown opponents," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"At times last season Bass played better than teammate Travis Carrie, the seventh round pick of the Oakland Raiders," the analyst wrote. Pauline currently grades Bass as an undrafted free agent, but the prospect of course has two remaining seasons of eligibility to improve on that prediction.

Raiders selected Ohio CB Travis Carrie with the No. 219 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Carrie (5-foot-11 5/8, 206) led the MAC in punt return average (12.7) as a senior and earned third-team all-conference recognition at corner, recording four interceptions. He had five career picks and two forced fumbles. Carrie battled knee injuries throughout college and wound up spending six years at Ohio, so he'll be a 24-year-old rookie. He's worth a flier due to his size and athleticism (4.45 forty, 41-inch vertical). In a pre-draft podcast, NFL Films' Greg Cosell stated Carrie possesses "an awful lot of the skills you look for" in a pro cornerback.

Ohio CB Travis Carrie looks like a fourth-round pick, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Carrie has plenty of size, as he arrived at the NFL combine at 6'0/206 pounds, but did not work out due to a knee issue. He ran a 4.45 forty and posted a 41 inch vertical and 10-foot-3 inch broad jump.

Ohio quarterback Boo Jackson had a good night against Troy in the New Orleans Bowl but it was not enough as the Trojans rolled the Bobcats.  Jackson finished the game with 209 yards passing with three touchdowns and just one pick. 

Jackson was the glue that made the offense go so replacing him will be the main task of head coach Frank Solich.
