Ohio State basketball adds transfer Isaac Likekele from Oklahoma State

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State basketball has added former Oklahoma State guard Isaac Likekele to its roster through the transfer portal.

Likekele started all but four of the 114 games he played in for the Cowboys, averaging 8.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists on 46 percent shooting. The program reached the NCAA Tournament once during his career making it to the second round in 2021. That 2020-21 season was also the most efficient of his career shooting 48 percent from the field and 44 percent from the three-point range.

He is Oklahoma State history to have with at least 1,000 points, 600 rebounds and 400 assists in his career.

The addition gives the Buckeyes a second point guard alongside incoming freshman Bruce Thorton. As a bigger guard – 6-5 and 215 pounds – the graduate transfer has a game that mirrors that of former OSU standout Jae’Sean Tate as a jack-of-all-trades type of player.

Likekele is the third player Ohio State has added from the transfer portal this offseason joining Tanner Holden (Wright State) and Sean McNeil (West Virginia).

Here’s a look at OSU’s roster after Likekele’s decision:

Position Senior Junior Sophomore Freshman Commit
Guard Sean McNeil Bruce Thorton; Roddy Gayle Jr .; Bowen Hardman George Washington III
Wing Tanner Holden; Justice Sueing (rs); Seth Towns (rs) Eugene Brown III Brice Sensabaugh; Kalen Etzler (rs)
Post Zed Key Felix Okpara Austin Parks
