Ohio State is adding Providence transfer Hevynne Bristow, head coach Kevin McGuff announced. The 6-foot-1 guard from Brooklyn will have three years of eligibility in Columbus beginning in 2021-22, as she must sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules.
“I’m excited to add Hevynne to our program,” McGuff said in a release. “She is a great kid that I think will add a lot to our team both on and off the court. Her mix of size and length and athleticism will be a perfect fit for our program.”
Bristow originally announced her decision to join the Buckeyes through an Instagram post on May 29.
Bristow played 29 games for the Friars in 2019-20, making three starts. She averaged 2.7 points on 37% shooting along with 2.2 rebounds, amassing a season-high nine points and seven rebounds in a December 29 loss at Villanova. Providence struggled last season, finishing eighth in the ten-team Big East with just three conference wins.
