Former Ohio basketball player Kadeem Green verbally committed to play basketball at Ryerson University on Monday, marking his second transfer in two years.
Ryerson head coach Roy B. Rana made the announcement on his Twitter account, saying Green is a “solid addition to our team, (Ontario University Athletics and Canadian Interuniversity Sport).”
Green, a native of Toronto, Ontario, will be closer to home at Ryerson, which is located a couple miles away from Lake Ontario in Toronto.
The Rams went 24-12 overall and 15-5 in the OUA last year, and averaged 76.4 points and 41.2 rebounds per game last season.
The 6-foot-8 sophomore came to Ohio last season from Missouri, sitting out the first half of the season due to NCAA transfer rules. Green played in 12 games for Ohio, averaging 5.3 minutes and 2.9 points on 75.0% shooting from the field.
Knee injuries limited Green’s productivity on the floor, which made it difficult to adjust to Ohio coach Jim Christian’s strategies.
The Bobcats have three big men coming into the program through recruitment next season. Maurice Ndour, Antonio Campbell, and Wadley Mompremier are all expected to battle for playing time next year.
