Former Buckeye reportedly walking on at Michigan State

BY foxsports • July 28, 2015

A former Ohio State legacy recruit appears to have landed at Michigan State.

SpartanTailgate reported Tuesday morning Frank Epitropoulos will continue his career in East Lansing as a walk-on.

Epitropoulos, whose father and uncle both played for the Buckeyes, announced prior to last season he was giving up the game to focus on preparation for medical school but apparently has changed his mind. 

That post got the attention of former teammate Michael Thomas, but there does not seem to be any animosity between the two. 

Listed at 6-foot-1, 206 pounds at Ohio State, Epitropoulos was a standout receiver, defensive back and punter at Upper Arlington High School, which is not far from Ohio Stadium.

He verbally committed to Ohio State in April 2011 -- prior to Jim Tressel's forced resignation -- as a three-star receiver prospect but was limited by injuries for much of his time suiting up for the Scarlet and Gray.

He played in four games and caught one pass for Ohio State during the 2013 season.
