Jared Sullinger is making a comeback.

The former Ohio State star hasn't seen the court since 2019, but he's set to return to the hardwood this year after signing with Anyang KGC of South Korea's top league.

After two consensus All-American seasons with the Buckeyes, Sullinger was drafted with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. After four seasons with the Celtics, Sullinger signed with the Toronto Raptors.

Following his five-year NBA stint, Sullinger moved overseas, signing with Shenzhen of the Chinese Basketball Association. Sullinger played two seasons in the CBA and was the league's top rebounder in 2018.

Sullinger has also been a part of Ohio State's alumni TBT team as first a player until the 2019 tournament, and most recently as a coach, leading the team to the TBT Tournament title in 2019.
