Andre Wesson's basketball career is in jeopardy. 

Ohio State confirmed to Eleven Warriors that the Buckeye sophomore forward has been undergoing tests during the summer for a medical issue, and it is unclear whether or not he will be able to continue his hoops career. 

An Ohio State spokesperson released the following statement to Eleven Warriors Wednesday afternoon:

"Ohio State sophomore forward Andre Wesson has been undergoing testing and monitoring over the summer for a medical issue. Additional testing will be conducted in the coming weeks. The Ohio State men’s basketball program is optimistic Andre will be able to continue his athletic career with the Buckeyes this season."

Wesson came to Ohio State as a three-star prospect in the 2016 class out of nearby Westerville South, where he won a state title his senior season. He played in 29 games off the bench during his freshman season with the Buckeyes, averaging 11.6 minutes and 2.3 points per game.

Wesson's younger brother Kaleb was a member of Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class, and is expected to play significant minutes in his first year under new head coach Chris Holtmann.
