Injuries have cost Harvard’s Seth Towns the last two seasons of his college basketball career. When he returns to the court next year, it will be with a new program.
The Ivy League does not allow student-athletes to compete as graduate students, so Towns will have to grad transfer to continue playing. He officially entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal in January.
Now, we have an idea of what schools Towns is looking at for next year, thanks to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Borzello. Six schools are standing out for the 6-foot-7 small forward.
According to Borzello, Towns is considering Kansas, Virginia, Syracuse, Ohio State, Maryland and Michigan. He would be immediately eligible no matter where he winds up.

A knee injury has prevented Towns from playing in each of the last two seasons. Even so, he figures to be one of the most sought-after grad transfers on the market this off-season.
A former top-150 recruit, Towns was the Ivy League Player of the Year in 2017-18 before getting hurt.
In two seasons with the Crimson, Towns averaged 14.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 41.9 percent from three-point range and 80.5 percent from the free-throw line.
