A Wisconsin transfer portal target is headed to the ACC

·1 min read

After being in the hunt for Ohio transfer Ben Vander Plas over the past month, Wisconsin lost out on the Badger State native.

On Saturday afternoon, Vander Plas and Barstool Sports announced that he is headed to Virginia. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game last season while shooting just under 46% from the field.

His biggest win at Ohio ironically came at the hands of Virginia. Vander Plas helped lead 13-seed Ohio to an NCAA Tournament win over the Cavaliers in the 2020 NCAA Tournament.

The Badgers were in Vander Plas’ final six schools, but will need to continue to search for transfer portal options after his decision.
