Former Ohio State forward, Justin Ahrens, announces transfer destination

By Mark Russell

Justin Ahrens announced he would be entering the transfer portal at the end of Ohio State’s basketball season. The NCAA granted all student-athletes an extra year of eligibility due to the global pandemic in 2020 and 2021. Ahrens decided to leave Columbus and take advantage of that extra year.

Ahrens announced on Friday that he’ll continue his basketball career on the west coast and has committed to Loyola Marymount University. Ahrens was a former three-star prospect from Versailles, Ohio, and spent four years in scarlet and gray.

Ahrens had his most successful season with the Buckeyes in his junior year where he averaged 5.7 ppg and shot over 42% from beyond the three-point line. Unfortunately, the sharpshooter wasn’t able to replicate that production as a senior and had the worst shooting year of his OSU career.

Ahrens joins Meechie Johnson who also entered the transfer portal at season’s end and landed at the University of South Carolina.

The Buckeye roster will look very different when the 2022 season begins. Along with Ahrens and Johnson moving on, the Buckeyes will have to replace Malaki Branham and E.J. Liddell, both of whom have entered the NBA draft.

We’ll keep tabs on Ahrens as he goes west to become an LMU Lion.
