Cleveland.com reports Cal sophomore headed to Big Ten team

Justice Sueing, who was Cal's leading scorer and rebounder this past season as a sophomore, is expected to transfer to Ohio State, according to a report by Cleveland.com based on a source.

Sueing visited the Columbus campus last week and was impressed with what the Buckeyes had to offer, according to the report on the Cleveland Plain Dealer website. He had also visited San Diego State.

Sueing has made no announcement about a transfer.

Sueing would be the second player to transfer from Cal since Mark Fox was hired as coach. Darius McNeill has transferred to SMU. Cal freshman Connor Vanover was scheduled to visit Arkansas and Vanderbilt, but no decision has been announced about his transfer plans.

Sueing averaged 14.3 points and 6.0 rebounds for the Golden Bears last season.

Sueing will have to sit out the 2019-20 season as a transfer and will be a redshirt junior when he plays in 2020-21. He is expected to replace Andre Wesson, who will be a senior this coming 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.

This will be the second straight year that the Buckeyes will have a transfer redshirting. C.J. Walker did so this past season.
