Long rumored and at times denied, the university today announced that sophomore guard Jordan Sibert and sophomore forward J.D. Weatherspoon are transferring.
Sibert's minutes decreased as the season progressed and he finished his career playing in 49 games while averaging 2.5 points and 1.4 rebounds per contest.
The school released the following statement from Sibert:
"My two years as an Ohio State Buckeye were great. Playing in the Final Four this year was a dream come true.
"I've decided to transfer after discussing my future goals with family and my coaches. I would like to find a school where I can make an impact on the court. I will miss my teammates, my coaches and the fans. I will always be a Buckeye."
Weatherspoon appeared in 35 games for the Buckeyes, averaging 2.7 points and one rebound per outing.
"Coach Matta and my teammates have been great to me at Ohio State. Our fans and the Columbus community have supported me while in high school and at Ohio State. After discussing my future with my family and my coaches, we determined transferring to another school would be the best opportunity for me. My family and I will begin that process immediately."
