Former Wake Forest guard Keyshawn Woods was one of the top graduate transfers on the market in college basketball, but not anymore. He has picked his new destination.

Woods will finish his college career at Ohio State. He'll be eligible immediately.

Woods announced his decision on Twitter Tuesday evening.

After spending his freshman season at Charlotte in 2014-15, where he averaged 8.4 points per game, Woods transferred to Wake Forest. He spent the next three years in Winston-Salem.

Woods redshirted in 2015-16, per NCAA transfer regulations. He then averaged double-figures in his two seasons suiting up for the Demon Deacons.

Woods averaged 12.5 points per game in 2016-17 and followed that up with 11.9 points per contest this year. He is also a solid three-point shooter. Woods shot 37 percent from three-point range this past season and was over 40 percent in his first year at Wake and his lone season at Charlotte.

In 2017-18, Woods reached double-digits on 20 occasions. He scored 20 or more points three times.

Ohio State reached the NCAA Tournament this season before a second-round loss to Gonzaga ended the Buckeyes' season.
