Eugene Brown III has made decision about his future at Ohio State

This decision should not come as a surprise — Ohio State forward Eugene Brown III has decided to enter the transfer portal.

The third-year player started 10 games this past year for the Buckeyes, averaging 3.5 points per game, along with 2.4 rebounds, while shooting 44.2% from the field.

Brown III had his moments, but it was pretty easy to see the writing on the wall after head coach Chris Holtmann went with a much younger lineup towards the end of the season even though his minutes increased.

At this point in his career, Brown III is most likely looking for consistent playing time in a system that caters a bit more to his playing style. Holtmann played him as an undersized big man which didn’t suit his strengths.

Brown III will leave Columbus with a degree, and experience in a high-major program and should garner plenty of interest in the portal. Thank you Eugene for your contributions over the past three seasons.
