Buckeyes add another transfer big man in Thompson

Thompson will have three years of eligibility remaining, most likely sitting out a year to begin playing in the 2015-16 season.
On his Twitter account, Thompson posted, ''Well it's official I'm a Ohio State Buckeye.''
Thompson is the second big man to transfer to Ohio State recently. Anthony Lee, a 6-9 forward, said late last month that he would graduate from Temple to transfer to Ohio State to play his final year next season.
Thompson, the son of former major-league baseball player Ryan Thompson, played in 29 games last season for the Hokies, starting in 10 while averaging 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds.
