Report: Another Ohio State hoops player deciding to leave program
Another Ohio State basketball player has decided to leave the program this offseason.
247Sports is reporting that Alonzo Gaffney will be leaving the Buckeyes basketball program after just one season in Columbus. He is expected to pursue the professional options that are available to continue his basketball career.
Gaffney played in 17 games for the Buckeyes in 2019-20, averaging 1.8 points and 1.4 rebounds per contest. He was a member of Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class.
The news of Gaffney’s departure comes shortly after guard DJ Carton announced he would be transferring from Ohio State. Carton took a leave of absence from the basketball program midway through the season for his mental health.
On Saturday night, Ohio State did receive some good news as top graduate transfer Seth Towns announced he would be transferring to play for Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes. He chose Ohio State over Duke and will be immediately eligible with two years left.
Towns has not played in two seasons but was named the Ivy League Player of the Year in 2017-18 after averaging 16.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game at Harvard.
