Luther Muhammad is headed to the Pac-12 as the former Ohio State guard will transfer to Arizona State, he told 247Sports.

In his two seasons with the Buckeyes, Muhammad averaged 7.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and one steal per game while shooting 37.8 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from 3-point range and 79.9 percent from the foul line.

Muhammad was seeking a more prominent role in the offense, and it seems that's what he's expecting at Arizona State.

"I picked ASU because I believe coach [Bobby] Hurley’s a great coach," Muhammad told 247Sports. "He wants and lets his guards create a lot, and is a very intense coach that demands the best out of his guys."

A four-star prospect ranked No. 79 overall and 14th among shooting guards in his class, Muhammad was the highest-rated player in the Buckeyes' 2018 recruiting class. He chose Ohio State over Notre Dame, St. John’s, Virginia, Xavier and others.

Muhammad has two remaining seasons of collegiate eligibility, but per NCAA rules, he will have to sit out a season before playing at Arizona State unless he receives a waiver for immediate eligibility.
