Ohio State guard Luther Muhammad is seen against Michigan during an NCAA college basketball game in Columbus, Ohio, Sunday, March 1, 2020. Ohio State won 77-63.

It is another early departure for the Ohio State men's basketball team.

The school confirms sophomore guard Luther Muhammad is entering the NCAA's transfer portal.

Muhammad started 28 games and averaged seven points and 2.3 rebounds per game last season for the Buckeyes.

His annoucement follows the departures of freshman guard D.J. Carton and freshman forward Alonzo Gaffney, both of whom are transfering, and junior forward Kaleb Wesson, who is leaving school early to turn pro.

Last month, Columbus-native and Harvard forward Seth Towns announced he would be transferring to Ohio State as a graduate transfer.
