Luther Muhammad, who entered the NCAA transfer portal April 5 after playing two seasons of basketball at Ohio State, on Tuesday committed to Arizona State.


In two seasons with the Buckeyes, the New Jersey native averaged 7.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 64 games, including 56 starts.


As a sophomore, he started 28 games and averaged 7.0 points while shooting 38.3% from the field. He was also well-regarded for his defense, typically drawing the top defensive assignment in each game.


The Dispatch learned that Muhammad's decision to leave stemmed in large part from his desire to have a greater offensive role.


"I picked ASU because I believe coach (Bobby) Hurley’s a great coach," Muhammad told 247Sports. "He wants and let’s his guards create a lot, and is a very intense coach that demands the best out of his guys."


Muhammad will have to sit out one season and will have two years of eligibility left.
