Seth Towns has been a Buckeye since Birth.

The 6-foot-7 Harvard transfer officially announced his commitment to Ohio State this week, but he's been a Buckeye all his life – and he's got proof.

A few days after announcing his intent to join Ohio State as a graduate transfer, Towns took to social media to show off a painting that's been on his wall since early childhood, featuring Towns dunking in a Buckeye uniform.

Towns grew up in Columbus, Ohio attending Northland High School where he set the high school record for most points in a career (2,018), single season (759) and single game (47).

A three-star prospect in the 2016 class and the No. 9 player in the state, Towns ultimately landed at Harvard, where he grew into a star, becoming the Ivy League Player of the Year his sophomore season.

Now, after his transfer, he has a chance to make those childhood dreams come true.

“Home is where the heart is," Towns said after his commitment. "I’m incredibly excited to play at home. My parents are the two biggest Buckeye fans ever. Having the opportunity to play for the school I’ve dreamed about playing for since I was a kid gives me a ton of pride.”
