COLUMBUS — Ohio State says forward Evan Ravenel is transferring from Boston College and plans to play for the Buckeyes.
Ravenel saw limited action for the Eagles last season. The 6-foot-8 player from Tampa, Fla., averaged 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 39 games over two seasons. He will be a junior, but won't be eligible to play for Ohio State until the 2011-12 season.
Ohio State made the announcement Tuesday.
Ravenel's decision was influenced after Boston College fired Al Skinner after 13 seasons and hired Cornell's Steve Donahue in April.
