Ohio State made its first transfer addition of the offseason on Sunday, as former Oregon point guard Chance Gray announced her commitment to the Buckeyes.

Gray, a Cincinnati native, entered the portal on April 3 after two seasons at Oregon. She started all 66 games for the Ducks over the past two seasons, averaging 12.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists on 34.4 percent shooting from the field, and 33.4 percent shooting from deep.

She was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team after averaging 10.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in her first year with the Ducks, and was an honorable mention on the conference’s All-Defensive Team. She scored in double digits in 26 of Oregon’s 31 games this season, and hit 20 points on five occassions, including two games where she made six three-point attempts.

Gray figures to compete with sixth-year guard Madison Greene and incoming freshman Jaloni Cambridge to be the team’s starting point guard, though Gray – who stands at 5-9 – could move to shooting guard, another position of need for the Buckeyes.

With Gray transferring to Ohio State, another name to keep an eye on is former Oregon forward Grace VanSlooten, a Toledo native who has also entered the portal after averaging 15.0 points and 7.1 rebounds last season. The Buckeyes still have three scholarship spots remaining following Gray’s transfer, and accounting for the incoming five-person freshman class.
