Caleb Burton announces transfer destination after leaving Ohio State
Ohio State lost a pair of receivers to the portal recently. Kaleb Brown recently announced he was leaving Columbus and committed to Iowa. Now we know where the other receiver who entered the transfer portal will land. Caleb Burton decided to head south to the SEC and committed to Auburn.
Burton was a highly touted prospect coming out of Austin, Texas, Lake Travis High School. A four-star prospect, his ranking took a bit of a dip after a season-ending knee injury during his junior season. Although an early enrollee, Burton did not see action during his freshman season at OSU.

Burton will try to reinvent himself at Auburn with new head coach Hugh Freeze. He’ll look to pair with Michigan State transfer Payton Thorne. The former Spartan quarterback was a two-year starter in East Lansing and passed for over 6,400 yards and 49 touchdowns.
Burton will join a receiving corps that was very underwhelming in 2022. The Tiger’s top receiver caught 26 passes for 493 yards and three touchdowns. The former Buckeye will have an opportunity to shine right away.
