On3’s Pete Nakos previously reported that Florida State, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin and USC were all schools to watch for Ward.
The Buckeyes are in the market for a new quarterback after Kyle McCord entered the transfer portal. Ohio State is 11-1 this season, with their lone loss coming to rival Michigan.
Ward is coming off an excellent season with Washington State, which finished 5-7 and is not bowl eligible. Ward passed for 3,732 yards, 25 touchdowns and 7 interceptions this season. He also rushed for 8 touchdowns. Ward began his college career at Incarnate Word in Texas but spent the last two seasons playing for the Cougars in Pullman.
Wherever he ends up, Ward will likely be making several million dollars in NIL money.
