Freshman Rodney Culver will reportedly transfer from Ohio.
The report, per Culver's father, was first reported by Corey Albertson, an NCAA-Approved Scouting Service Operator, from Columbus.
Per his father - Ohio University freshman SG Rodney Culver will transfer.— Corey Albertson (@Corey_Albertson) March 19, 2017
A 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Columbus, Culver averaged 2.6 points and 1.5 rebounds per game in his first season. He entered with high expectations from the fan base and looked to be on the way to fulfilling those expectations. He logged 10 or more minutes in 13 of Ohio's first 16 games, but as the season went on his minutes dropped significantly.
In the team's 20 Mid-American Conference games after the new year, he played over 10 minutes just four times.
Known for his defense more than his offense, Culver will leave a hole on the defensive end as well as in the future, as Ohio now has no guards on the roster that will be freshmen or sophomores. This also comes on the heels of Khari Harley's departure. Harley will take a graduate transfer and play his last year of basketball elsewhere.
