COLUMBUS — Ohio State entered the offseason having grabbed just eight players from the transfer portal since it opened in early 2019.

The Buckeyes have already accounted for half that total over the last month with four incoming transfers.

They’ve matched their transfer total (two) for each of the past two seasons this week alone by adding Oregon State quarterback Tristan Gebbia and Louisiana-Monroe offensive lineman Victor Cutler.

Those two join Kent State kicker Casey Magyar and Syracuse safety Ja’Had Carter as incoming Ohio State transfers in the 2023 class.

Gebbia is a seventh-year grad transfer who started just five games in five years at Oregon State. He’s gives the Buckeyes a fourth quarterback, and someone who brings college game experience to the table. In all likelihood, Gebbia will be the third-stringer behind Kyle McCord and Devin Brown, both of whom are competing to be Ohio State’s starting signal caller.

Cutler, on the other hand, has two years of eligibility remaining after starting 21 games across three seasons for ULM. The 6-foot-3, 302-pound Cutler has started games at center, right tackle and left tackle.

Ohio State’s most recent transfer additions follow the departure of two-time Heisman Trophy quarterback C.J. Stroud and a trio of starting Buckeyes offensive linemen to this year’s NFL Draft.

In another Lettermen Row offseason report, the crew of Spencer Holbrook, Tim May and Andy Backstrom discuss Cutler and Gebbia, as well as what their roles might be in Columbus.
