Ohio State freshman guard Austin Grandstaff will transfer, the school announced Thursday.

The 6'5" Grandstaff appeared in 10 games this season, averaging 11.5 minutes and 4.4 points.

A native of Rockwall, Texas, Scout.com ranked Grandstaff a four-star prospect and the 60th overall player in the 2015 class. Grandstaff was touted for his shooting ability, and shot 12–36 from three at Ohio State.

“[Ohio State has] been nothing but great to me,” Grandstaff told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman on Thursday. “But I just don’t see it as the right fit, so I want to look somewhere else. They are great people, and Coach [Thad] Matta is a great coach.”

The other schools Grandstaff considered as a recruit include Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan and Oregon.
