West Virginia guard Sean McNeil announces transfer to Ohio State – Reuters

West Virginia guard Sean McNeil announced via social media that he has committed to Ohio State.

A day after missing out on a transfer from Kansas State guard Nijel Pack, Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann added the 6-foot-3, 210-pound McNeil from Morgantown.

McNeil averaged 12.2 points per game as a senior last season. He made 36.8% of his three-point attempts. He also scored 12.2 points per game as a junior.

McNeil is a Union, Kentucky native who played junior college basketball at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio, where he led the nation in scoring as a true freshman with 29 .7 points per game. He also scored two 55-point games that season.

After his first season at Sinclair, McNeil moved to West Virginia. In his first season with the Mountaineers, he averaged 5.5 points per game.

McNeil hit the 20-point mark three times last season, including a season-high 26 points in a win over Kansas State.

McNeil is more of a shooter than a distributor — as evidenced by his five total assists in his last five games at WVU, but he’ll provide the ball handling the Buckeyes need next season.
