Emma Shumate is making a move back to central Ohio for her college basketball career.

The Newark graduate has transferred from West Virginia to Ohio State. She announced her plans on social media Monday.

Shumate had been preparing for her first season with the Mountaineers after starting at Newark.

Shumate led the Wildcats to the program’s first Division I state runner-up finish last season. She was a two-time All-Ohio first-team selection, stuffing the stat sheet in all categories with impressive skills on the perimeter and in the paint.
