    A week after California's Justice Sueing visited Columbus, he announced his intention to transfer to Ohio State. He will sit out the 2019-20 season, but has two years of remaining eligibility beginning in 2020-21.

    Sueing, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound forward, stood out on a Golden Bears team that struggled last season, compiling an 8-23 record. He led Cal with 14.3 points and six rebounds per game, shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from beyond the arc.

    JUSTICE SUEING (REDSHIRT JUNIOR)
    What he’s done: Much like Walker was a year ago, Sueing has to be feeling a bit impatient. He had to sit out the entire 2019-20 season after transferring from California. As a Golden Bear, the 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward was second on the team in scoring as a freshman (13.8 points per game) before leading the team in points per game as a sophomore (14.3). He shot 43.3 percent from the field, 30.7 percent from 3-point range and 73.4 percent from the foul line while averaging 5.7 rebounds per game across both seasons. While sitting out of games this season, Sueing had foot surgery in January that Holtmann estimated would sideline him for three or four months.

    Next season’s outlook: All reports of Sueing’s in-practice performance – prior to his injury – were overwhelmingly positive. He’s expected to immediately offer a scoring punch in 2020-21, especially given his ability to get to the rim. As a sophomore, he shot more total free throws (165) than anybody on Ohio State’s roster last season. He’ll offer the Buckeyes a slasher they haven’t had in recent years. Sueing could additionally play “point forward” at times to spell Walker.

    JUSTICE SUEING (REDSHIRT JUNIOR – FORWARD)
    NEEDS TO ... CEMENT HIMSELF AS THE TEAM'S MOST EFFECTIVE SLASHER
    In his first year at California, Sueing nearly led the Golden Bears in scoring by averaging 13.8 points per game, and as a sophomore he managed to do so with 14.3 points per game. One of the main reasons he was so effective as a scorer? His ability to get to the rim.

    “He's hard to keep in front,” Holtmann said. “He's terrific at getting to the paint. One of the things we lose with Kaleb is that guy that can draw fouls and get to the paint. Justice does that at a high level.”

    Recently, Ohio State hasn't really had anyone with that type of skillset. He arrives at an optimal time for the Buckeyes, as Kaleb Wesson is gone after leading the team in free-throw rate last season.
