Trevor Thompson will transfer from Virginia Tech to Ohio State.
Thompson was also pursued by Indiana, Purdue and Butler.
"I love the academics, the fans, my new teammates and the coaching staff," Thompson said. "It was the perfect fit."
Thompson averaged 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds per game as a freshman. Thompson will sit out next season, but he could request a waiver from the NCAA due to his father's medical condition.
