Buckeyes forward given release

COLUMBUS (AP) - Seldom-used Ohio State forward Jermyl Jackson-Wilson has been released from his scholarship so that he can transfer to another school after spring quarter, the school said on Thursday.

Jackson-Wilson, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound freshman, wants more playing time, the university said.

Jackson-Wilson played in just 11 of Ohio State's 32 games and averaged 2.3 minutes.

Jackson-Wilson came to Ohio State after a year at Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy.

He graduated in 2003 from Milwaukee's Rufus King High School where he averaged 10 points and 12 rebounds a game as a senior and helped the team go 26-0 and win the Wisconsin state championship.

A phone number for Jackson-Wilson could not be found.
