Former Temple Owl Anthony Lee has found a new home in college basketball and it’s in the Big Ten. Lee will be transferring to Ohio State according to a report from ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman.

Lee will bring immediate help to the Buckeyes as he was a pretty productive player at Temple. This past season for the Owls was not a good one as they finished the season 9-22 but Lee was a main cog in the offense. This past season he averaged 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
Over his entire college basketball career, Lee is averaging 9.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. As I mentioned earlier, Lee will bring immediate impact to Ohio State as he is a graduate transfer so he is eligible right away.
Lee tweeted this from his twitter account on Saturday:
Buckeye Nation! Too blessed, been thru 2 much an Coach Matta and the Buckeye family knows what I need for this last year. Blessed! !!!

Overall, a great pick up for the Buckeyes and what’s even better is Lee reportedly picked OSU over Iowa State, Indiana, Louisville, and Notre Dame.
