After an early exit in the NCAA tourney, and seemingly losing players every day, the Ohio State men’s basketball team finally had some good news on Saturday.

Jeff Goodman of ESPN was the first to report that former Temple forward Anthony Lee will transfer to Ohio State.

Lee stands at 6’9 230 pounds and is a graduate transfer so he will be able to play immediately for the Buckeyes.

During his last season with Temple, Lee averaged 13.6 points per game while grabbing 8.6 rebounds per game.

Post play is definitely an area of need for the Buckeyes. Amir Williams showed flashes of becoming a dominant big man, but was never able to consistently produce at a high level.

Lee joins an Ohio State recruiting class which is ranked eighth overall by rivals.com.
