(2-23-19) This year Lima Senior added two high-profile basketball transfers from Pickerington Central (who went 21-1 and was ranked #2 In DI this year), Josiah Fulcher and Jamir Simpson. It paid off for the Spartans who won a share of the Three Rivers Athletic Conference last night knocking off state ranked Toledo Whitmer 52-49.
Fulcher is the Spartans leading scorer with a 17.1 average, he scored 14 last night, while Simpson added 10 points and 7 rebounds. The two have been a BIG part of the turn-around leading Lima Senior…who ended the regular season last night at 18-4 and 12-2 in the TRAC.
Both players were eligible for the entire season, thanks to the OHSAA 11 exemption transfer rule. The two players both transferred shortly after it was released that two Springfield players would transfer to Pickerington Central:
‘19 prospects Jay Rodgers and Sam Towns have both transferred from Springfield to Pickerington Central. Tigers become even more loaded with two quality players who logged important minutes for Springfield last season.

Looking at the Lima Senior transfers, which one of the 11 exemption transfer rules made them eligible? Were the two players ever in talks with Lima Senior while still enrolled at Pickerington Central? Has Lima Senior over the past several years have high profile basketball transfers? Does the OHSAA actually do any research on requests?
You have to be the biggest idiot on the planet. I’ll type slow. Jo Fulcher and Jamir Simpson are the stepson and son of Greg Simpson, you know Lima Senior alum, 2 time Mr. Basketball… They moved into the district! There is your exemption!! An alum moved home!! So you can stop with this now…
Did the writer of this “article” who isn’t man enough to give his name do any research LOL? Or is he too lazy and want us to do it for him/her. This is poorly written and horribly researched.
There should be no transfer rules at all — “The only winning move is not to play the game” (story from 8-21-17) https://statelinesportsnetwork.net/2017/08/21/transfers-the-only-winning-move-is-not-to-play-the-game to many gray areas with the 11 exemption rule – eliminate all the rules would save everyone a lot of grief and in some cases legal battles…BUT…if you are going to have these rules enforce them for everyone. The OHSAA may review eligibility but they lack the ability to investigate any of them, not fair to every kids who transfers..
