Tough run for that kid. Six seasons in college, only played in three.

I saw where Ohio St got WVU transfer Sean McNeil.  Really good shooter.  If OSU has point guards  who can set him up he can be a really effective offensive weapon.

Averaged a little over 12 points per game each of the last two years in Morgantown.  Nice get for the Buckeyes.

Nothing against Ohio State as an academic institution, but if he was going to be this limited as a basketball player, while still being in school for 7 years, he could have gotten a whole lot of Harvard education out of it, if he had just stayed put

Interestingly, he could not have. The Ivy league caps kids at four years.

I knew they have that rule before, but I thought with the COVID years they revised it.  But I'm sure whatever modifications they may or may not have made, it's true he certainly could not have playex 7 years at Harvard.  And it's fair, Harvard could certainly not recover from getting a basketball player, a free ride for 7 years

Wow.  I thought he might be a 1 and done guy, but they're gonna get 3 years out of him.

I'm not positive but I think he graduated from Harvard and transferred to tOSU for grad school so by the time he uses up all of his eligibility he'll likely have a Harvard Undergrad Degree and an Ohio State Graduate Degree so I think he'll have gotten a pretty good deal out of it all.  

Still unfortunate he couldn't play ball more (both at Harvard and tOSU).

He missed the extra COVID year by one season. And even then, they only allowed for one extra year.

Micah Potter's brother is in the portal - football, from OSU.

If he chooses UW, does he have to sit for two years, or three?
