COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Former Ohio State guard Meechie Johnson announced he is transferring to South Carolina for next season.
The freshman guard said on April 12 that he was entering the transfer portal and leaving Ohio State and will now play for the Gamecocks in the SEC.
Johnson spent two years at Ohio State after enrolling a year early out of Garfield Heights High School in Cleveland.
He averaged 17.7 minutes last season but only mustered 4.4. points a game on 30.8% shooting. When healthy, Johnson struggled with turnovers averaging 1.3 per game.
Johnson is the fourth player to announce his intention to leave Ohio State. E.J. Liddell, Malaki Branham and Jamari Wheeler all entered the NBA Draft.
