JACKSON, Miss. -- Former Ohio State running back Erik Haw said he will transfer to Jackson State in Mississippi.

Haw rushed for 61 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries last season for the Buckeyes. He said he decided to transfer after learning he would likely be low on the depth chart at running back going into this year. He's a sophomore with three years of eligibility remaining.

By going to Division I-AA Jackson State, Haw is eligible to play immediately instead of having to sit out a season if he went to another Division I school.

Haw went to Independence High School in Columbus. He played in four games with the Buckeyes last year.
