He actually medically retired from football in October 2018.However, in March, Barrow announced he was making a return to the sport and looking to transfer to a new program. That program will be UCF, where Barrow will be eligible immediately and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.Barrow announced the news on his Instagram story. His former OSU teammate Matthew Burrell captured a screenshot of the post and shared it to Twitter. “I am extremely thankful for this opportunity to play the sport I love and continue my education,” Barrow’s announcement reads. “I will continue to strive for greatness through whatever life may bring my way.”@MalikB_55 I seen it at, every drop lil bradda.

Hopefully, he stays healthy long enough to have an impact on the field at UCF.“I’m getting stronger every day,” Barrow told 247Sports in May. “I’m just trying to find the place that has the best opportunity for me to shine. I’ve just got to look at depth charts to see how I fit and figure out how they plan to use me.”last_img read more
