Adding intensity to the Big Ten rivalry, guard Roddy Gayle Jr. announced Monday he is transferring from Ohio State to Michigan.

As a sophomore in 2023-24, the 6-foot-4 Gayle started 35 of 36 games for the Buckeyes and averaged 13.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 30.9 minutes per game.

In two seasons in Columbus, the Niagara Falls, N.Y., native averaged 9.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 71 games (46 starts).

Gayle's commitment marks a strong early recruiting victory for new Wolverines coach Dusty May, who left Florida Atlantic to replace Juwan Howard in Ann Arbor, Mich.
