Seven-foot Virginia Tech transfer Trevor Thompson's finalists include three Big Ten schools — Indiana, Purdue and Ohio State.
The Indianapolis native averaged 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds as a freshman for the Hokies. He must sit out the 2014-15 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
Thompson will visit Ohio State this weekend. He told Peegs.com that his relationship with Thad Matta has the Buckeyes in good shape.
"Ohio State because of the great relationship I got off from the jump with Thad Matta. I really love him as a coach and a mentor. Also with everything I just trust him, and Ohio State is a great program and kept in contact with me the most, and it's close to home."
