Sophomore J.D. Weatherspoon has been granted a release from his scholarship and plans to transfer to an undetermined school, coach Thad Matta said Monday. Weatherspoon, a 6-6 F who was a high school teammate of former Buckeyes F Jared Sullinger and Michigan PG Trey Burke, saw limited action in two seasons, averaging 2.7 ppg. "I can relate to a young man's desire to play," Matta said. "I was in his shoes during my collegiate career."
