Small has received interest from several top programs during the transfer process. He scored 15.8 points per game last season for the Pirates.

He was a breakout star in the AAC last season as a sophomore. In addition to his scoring, Small also averaged 5.6 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game this past season.

The Buckeyes are coming off of a disappointing campaign where they missed the NCAA Tournament. No player on Ohio State averaged more than 3 assists per game last season, so Small would be a big upgrade at the guard position.

Ohio State has already added 1 transfer in forward Jamison Battle this cycle. Chris Holtmann’s staff also signed 4 high school players from the class of 2023.

There is no time table for Small’s decision.
