Towns had hoped to return to the court midway through the 2021-22 season but was ruled out for the year in early February. It was the third time in his career he missed a full season because of injury.
Before transferring to Ohio State, the forward spent four years at Harvard. He only saw action in his first two seasons and was the Ivy League Player of the Year in 2017-18. That year, Towns averaged 16 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
Towns would miss each of the following two seasons because of injury. He then transferred to Ohio State following the 2019-20 campaign.
In his first year at Ohio State, Towns appeared in 25 games off the bench. He averaged 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game while logging just under 11 minutes per contest.
Ohio State ended the 2021-22 season with a 12-8 record in the B1G and a 20-12 mark overall. The Buckeyes defeated Loyola Chicago in the first round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Villanova in the Round of 32.
