Ohio State forward Micah Potter transferring as opener nears

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State forward Micah Potter is transferring two days before Buckeyes‘ season opener.

The university announced the decision Monday but did not say to what school the 6-foot-9 junior was going.

Potter dealt with ankle injuries his first two years and has not met expectations that he would become a dominant inside player.

Potter, of Mentor, Ohio, appeared in 59 games with 16 starts, averaging 4.1 points and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 46 percent.

The Buckeyes open Wednesday at Cincinnati.
