COLUMBUS, Ohio (BVM) – Seth Towns has had a long and complicated college basketball career to say the least. The former three-star recruit began his career at Harvard where he rose to Ivy League Player of the Year as a sophomore in 2017-18 after he averaged 16.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists. However, a significant knee injury caused him to miss the next two years and transfer to his hometown Ohio State team where he played in only 25 games for the Buckeyes, averaging 3.8 points across three years, two of which he missed following a back surgery.

Now, Towns is attempting to make a comeback. After leaving the Ohio State program in September where he left his future up in the air, Towns has entered his name into the transfer portal. He could have up to two years of eligibility remaining based on how many medical redshirts he was awarded and the extra year of eligibility granted to players who participated in the COVID-19-impacted 2020-21 season. If he is granted two additional years, this would mean he’d be a part of a college basketball team for nine years.
