Ohio State: Micah Potter leaving men’s basketball program

The Ohio State men’s basketball program lost a key piece to a young roster Monday after junior forward Micah Potter said he will transfer from the Buckeyes, head coach Chris Holtmann announced.

In 59 games for the Buckeyes, Potter registered 16 starts while averaging over four points and nearly three rebounds per game. The program did not state any other details regarding his transfer.

“We appreciate Micah’s contributions to our program and we wish him the very best moving forward,” Holtmann said.

Tim Potter, the father of Noah, issued a statement to Lettermen Row about his son’s departure on behalf of his family.

“We are thankful to Coach Matta, Gene Smith, and the University for giving Micah a chance to live his dream,” Tim Potter said. “We will forever be grateful. We appreciate Coach Holtman and his staff for their training and hard work in helping the team get to the dance last year. We wish all our friends and families in basketball Buckeye Nation all the best.”
