Potter announced that he would be leaving the Buckeye program just days before they opened the 2018-19 season, meaning that he will be eligible to play next fall for the Badgers.
The 6-foot-9 forward played in 59 games during his Ohio State career, and averaged 4.1 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He began both of his seasons in Columbus as a starter, but was eventually replaced in the lineup by Trevor Thompson and Kaleb Wesson.
Potter will be a junior when he begins his career in Madison, and will have two years of eligibility remaining to play with for Greg Gard’s team.
Potter’s younger brother, Noah, is a four-star defensive end from Mentor, Ohio who remains committed to the Buckeye football program. We wish Micah the best of luck, and look forward to seeing the Buckeyes face off with the Badgers with him on the floor next season!
