Trevor Thompson will play in The Basketball Tournament on an Ohio-based team.

He just won't have any of his former Buckeye teammates alongside him.

Thompson, a 6-foot-11, 210-pound big man, was announced on Thursday afternoon as the last addition to the Red Scare, a Dayton alumni team. His group also includes Trey Landers, the brother of former Buckeyes defensive tackle Robert Landers.

Thompson could meet Big X – which includes Andrew Dakich, CJ Jackson, Keyshawn Woods and Jae'Sean Tate – in the second round. The Red Scare has a first-round bye, but Big X has to win its opening game to set up the matchup. A game against Carmen's Crew, Ohio State's alumni team, would then be possible in the following round.

A Virginia Tech transfer, Thompson spent two years as a center for Ohio State, averaging 8.5 points and seven rebounds in 20.4 minutes per game across the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.
