Ohio State is making a huge addition to its 2020-21 roster.
Saturday night, Harvard graduate transfer Seth Towns announced that he will complete his college basketball career at Ohio State. He was deciding between the Buckeyes and Duke after he made the decision to leave Harvard. Towns will have two seasons of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible to play next season.
Towns has suffered knee injuries the last two seasons, which has kept him sidelined from the action. There’s no doubt about his talent, though, as he was named the Ivy League Player of the Year for the 2017-18 season.

That year, Towns averaged 16.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while shooting over 44 percent from 3-point range.
With Ohio State losing guard DJ Carton to transfer, the addition of Towns is significant for Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes. If he returns at full health, he should be able to make an immediate impact for the Buckeyes next season.
