There were reports and rumors yesterday that former Buckeye recruit Dionte Allen was transferring to OSU. The defensive back out of Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Marys picked Florida State over OSU coming out of high school, but after a bumpy road with the Seminoles will supposedly come play in Columbus. The Dispatch reported this early this morning:

"Florida State cornerback Dionte Allen is transferring to Ohio State this season, according to OSU receiver Taurian Washington, his former high school teammate.

"An Ohio State spokesperson said she could not confirm the transfer, as it has not been finalized.

"Allen, from Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Marys, will have one year of eligibility left after sitting out this season. He redshirted in 2007 and has appeared in 14 games, with one start, over the past two seasons."
