Former Ohio State Forward Seth Towns Transfers To Howard

Former Ohio State forward Seth Towns announced on Friday that he will transfer to Howard University, marking his third stop in his college basketball journey.

Towns entered the portal on Monday after stepping away from the Ohio State program prior to the 2022-23 season, after facing setbacks in his recovery from offseason surgery. Towns missed the entirety of the 2021-22 season due to back surgery, but appeared in 25 games for Ohio State in 2020-21, in which he averaged 10.8 minutes per game while producing 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per contest.

Prior to joining Ohio State, Towns was a standout at Harvard, where he emerged as the Ivy League Player of the Year in 2017-18, but a devastating knee injury during the 2018 Ivy League Championship held him out for the next two seasons. With the Crimson, Towns appeared in 58 games and posted averages of 14.2 points and 5.0 rebounds.

Towns, a member of the 2016 recruiting class, now joins a Howard team that is coming off of a 22-13 campaign — in which they secured the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Bison fell to No. 1 seed Kansas 96-68 in the opening round of the tournament on March 16.
