Bears' leading scorer this past season remains in the transfer portal

Cal forward Justice Sueing apparently has an interest in Ohio State.

Sueing, Cal’s leading scorer and rebounder this past season as a sophomore, remains in the transfer portal, and Cleveland.com, Columbus Dispatch and 247Sports reported that he was scheduled to make a visit to Ohio State this past weekend.

Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann has one scholarship available to add a transfer. If he does transfer, Sueing presumably would have to sit the 2019-20 season before having two years of eligibility.

Adding Sueing could also provide a replacement for Andre Wesson, who will be the only senior on the Buckeyes’ roster next season.

The Buckeyes went 20-15 overall and 8-12 in the Big Ten this past season, and they advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Sueing also reportedly visited San Diego State, although it is still possible that he will remain at Cal.

The 6-foot-7 Sueing announced his intention to transfer shortly after Mark Fox was hired to replace Wyking Jones as the Bears’ head coach.

Sueing averaged 14.3 points and 6.0 rebounds. He shot 43 percent from the floor, including 30 percent on 3-pointers.

The 247Sports report speculates that he might also consider Missouri, since current Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin recruited Sueing to Cal when Martin was the Bears’ head coach.

Cal freshman Connor Vanover is also in the transfer portal and reportedly was scheduled to visit Arkansas and Vanderbilt. Darius McNeill has transferred to SMU.
