Things are moving fast for Harvard grad transfer Seth Towns. The onetime Ivy League Player of the Year is reportedly down to two finalists.

Towns is still considering Duke and Ohio State, according to multiple reports. The 6-foot-7 swingman will be immediately eligible at either place, with two seasons left to play.

Towns has missed the last two seasons due to injury, and since the Ivy League does not allow athletes to compete as grad students, he has to look elsewhere to continue his college career. He officially entered the NCAA transfer portal in January.

Earlier this month, Towns was looking at Kansas, Virginia, Syracuse, Ohio State, Maryland and Michigan. Duke apparently made contact in recent days, interjecting their way into the conversation.

There's no timetable for when Towns will announce.

In two seasons with the Crimson, Towns averaged 14.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.

He also shot 41.9 percent from three-point range and converted 80.5 percent of his free throw attempts.
