After leaving the Ohio State football team this spring, former four-star receiver and major Kentucky target L’Christian “Blue” Smith has announced he will be transferring to Cincinnati.
Smith, a 6-foot-6 prospect from Dayton, OH, was with Ohio State for just one season.
Here was the announcement:

As a recruit, Smith was considered a consensus four-star prospect and was rated as high as No. 39 overall in the class of 2018. Out of high school, the elite wideout prospect committed to Ohio State over Kentucky, Alabama, Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State, among others, though most recruiting analysts felt his decision came down to the Buckeyes and the Wildcats.
After putting his name in the transfer portal back on March 22, it was eventually reported that Smith was deciding between Cincinnati and Kentucky to finish out his college career. While the Wildcats were deemed the runner-up during his original recruitment and many assumed they might be the favorite this time around, the Bearcats (for whatever reason) jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.
That’s alright, though. Vince Marrow got us plenty excited for the star transfer we did get during his appearance on KSR this morning.
