COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Sophomores J.D. Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert have notified Ohio State that they will seek transfers and leave the Buckeyes.

Weatherspoon, a high school teammate of NBA-bound former Buckeye Jared Sullinger and Michigan point guard Trey Burke, played in 25 games last season as Ohio State went 31-8, shared the Big Ten regular-season title and made it the Final Four before losing to Kansas, 64-62.

The 6-4 Sibert also scored 3.0 points a game and added 1.1 rebounds while hitting 30 percent of his shots from the field and 26 percent behind the arc.

Ohio State spokesman Dan Wallenberg confirmed both transfers on Monday.
