Ohio State on Temple transfer Anthony Lee's short list

Ohio State is in the top five for Temple forward/center transfer Anthony Lee.

The basketball Buckeyes desperately need help in the front court heading into the 2014-2015 season, especially with second leader rebounder LaQuinton Ross reportedly declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft.

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman (who also was the first to report Ross' pending departure), Ohio State has made the top five cut for Temple power forward transfer Anthony Lee, who averaged 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds for the Owls last year. Joining the Buckeyes in his top five are Indiana, Louisville, Iowa State, and Notre Dame.

Jake Pavorsky of Liberty Ballers believes that Iowa State is the team to beat for Lee's services:

Lee is a graduate transfer, so he'll be able to play immediately at whichever school he decides to attend for his final year of college basketball.

Amir Williams has drawn the ire of the fanbase for his inconsistency, but has improved incrementally each of the previous three seasons. As thing currently stand he's likely to be the starting center, but if Lee coming to Columbus, minutes/rotations could certainly change. Trey McDonald, who hasn't progressed as rapidly as many would like and incoming freshmen Dave Bell, who is very raw and almost a mortal lock to redshirt, aren't likely to pose as a serious threat to minutes at the 5.

Though there's no timetable for his decision, we'll make sure to keep you updated if more news regarding Lee comes to light.
