Thompson transferring to OSU

Published 3:46am Tuesday, April 15, 2014

COLUMBUS (AP) — Virginia Tech’s Trevor Thompson, a 6-foot-11 sophomore, says he’s transferring to play at Ohio State.

Thompson will have three years of eligibility remaining, most likely sitting out a year to begin playing in the 2015-16 season.

On his Twitter account, Thompson posted, “Well it’s official I’m a Ohio State Buckeye.”

Thompson is the second big man to transfer to Ohio State recently. Anthony Lee, a 6-9 forward, said late last month that he would graduate from Temple to transfer to Ohio State to play his final year next season.

Thompson, the son of former major-league baseball player Ryan Thompson, played in 29 games last season for the Hokies, starting in 10 while averaging 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds.

An Indianapolis native, he had also considered Indiana and Purdue.
