California transfer Justice Sueing is taking a visit to Ohio State this weekend, a source confirmed to Eleven Warriors. Steve Helwagen of 247Sports first reported the visit.
Sueing, who has reportedly also taken a visit to San Diego State, would have to sit out the 2019-20 season before having two remaining seasons of eligibility. He's a 6-foot-7, 215-pound wing who started the past two years for the Golden Bears, averaging 14.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game in the past two seasons combined. He led California in points per game and rebounds per game last year.
ESPN ranked Sueing as the 13th-best transfer who must sit out a season before becoming eligible, and Stadium listed him as the 10th-ranked transfer who has to sit out.
Sueing grew up in Hawaii, where his dad played high school basketball, but moved to Los Angeles to play high school basketball at Mater Dei.
Ohio State has one scholarship remaining for the 2019-20 season, though Chris Holtmann has expressed a desire not to use it on anyone who will be eligible to play immediately next season. Instead, if the team uses its 13th scholarship, it's expected to happen with a transfer who must sit out next season, like Sueing.
With the Buckeyes losing Andre Wesson to graduation after this season, they're in search of another wing to add either via a transfer who has to sit out next season or as a freshman in their 2020 recruiting class. Sueing is an option to fill that spot.
