Ohio State lands Temple transfer Anthony Lee

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes fill a big area of need by reeling in Temple forward Anthony Lee.

With a critical need for interior depth on next year's Ohio State men's basketball team, Thad Matta and his coaching staff have reeled in a big one.

After a two-day visit from Temple forward Anthony Lee, our Miles Joseph confirms the big man has decided to transfer to play next season for OSU. ESPN's Jeff Goodman (who first broke the LaQuinton Ross going pro news) first reported the news.

Last season for the Owls, Lee, who checks in at 6'9, 230 pounds, put up 13.6 points per game and pulled down 8.6 rebounds per contest as well. He had a season-high 23 points in an overtime December loss to future NCAA Tournament No. 7 seed, the Texas Longhorns.

Lee's expected to play the four (or per the scuttlebutt, has made it clear that's where he thinks he's best suited). While many cynics would've hoped his entrance into the program (which due to NCAA graduate transfer rules allow him to be eligibility immediately) would've meant diminished minutes for Amir Williams, Lee's presence will likely help make Williams, who was already the Buckeyes' second-most efficient defensive player, even more effective.
