Towns committed to Ohio State earlier this spring after spending four years at Harvard. Towns did not compete the last two seasons due to injuries. But because of Ivy League rules, he was unable to compete at Harvard any longer, forcing him to find a new school for the upcoming season.
Towns will have two years of eligibility at Ohio State and can compete immediately.
