Buckeyes forward Kaleb Wesson makes announcement on future at Ohio State
After completing his junior season at Ohio State, Kaleb Wesson has made a decision on his future with the program.
On Wednesday, Wesson announced via Twitter that he will enter his name into the NBA Draft. His intention, as stated in his tweet, is to sign with an agent, which will not allow him to return to Ohio State for the 2020-21 season. If Wesson does not sign with an agent, he would be permitted to return to Columbus next season.
“Once our season was declared over, my family, coaches and I began discussions on what the future held for me,” Wesson said in a statement. “After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to declare for the NBA Draft. I intend to sign with an agent to help with this process.”

Wesson nearly averaged a double-double during his junior season, averaging 14.0 points and 9.3 rebounds per game, while shooting over 44 percent from the floor. In addition to having a strong low-post presence, Wesson developed as a shooter from range, adding that skill to his quiver.
Though Wesson saw a slight dip in his points per game average this year, he set career highs in rebounds (9.3), assists (1.9), blocks (1.0) and 3-point percentage (42.5).
Ohio State finished the 2019-20 season with a 21-10 record and an 11-9 mark in B1G play. The Buckeyes were ranked throughout a majority of the season.
