'06 TN SF Thaddeus Young (Georgia Tech Verbal)

    I have not heard when he is visiting North Carolina on an official visit. The feeling I get is that recruiting is not his #1 concern at the moment.

    Per Lamb on BN....

    He feels we have the recruiting momentum with Young and its possible we could land him.

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=alt2 style="BORDER-RIGHT: 1px inset; BORDER-TOP: 1px inset; BORDER-LEFT: 1px inset; BORDER-BOTTOM: 1px inset">Hey 44820...since you're so confident about Oden & Conley, what do you think our chances are with Young? I mean, if you're Matta here, all you really need to say to the kid is, do you, or do you not want to be a part of this potential NC squad?

    Secondly, is Young visiting this weekend with the other two? I haven't heard anything that would hint at that. </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    Let me be completely clear for those of you, who are not familiar with Young.....the scoop on him is that right now he is not focusing on visits and has had North Carolina the leader for some time now, with that said, Matta has done an outstanding job of just getting him to come to OSU for a visit. As far as I know, he has not taken any official visits and this would be his first. As of right now Young is trying to work out the details for a visit this weekend, but it is not set in stone as of today. Our odds are about 30% right now, if you get him on campus with the other top prospects......your guess is as good as mine. Matta has been able to make quite an impression on Young this late in the recruiting stage, its almost unbelievable to get a prospect like Young to visit OSU because historically its been hard to get those types of players out of the south.

    Nice pics. Young is without a doubt a player I'd really love to see join this astounding class. As I posted on Sucknuts earlier today, if we can nab Conley and Oden this weekend (which IMO looks very promising) then we can start having the Spiece boys call up Young and letting him know the Fab 4 has been assembled and is waiting for their 5th fabulous player!

    Matta and Cook have done a tremendous job so far, I can't wait to see how this all unfolds!

    From BSB...Thaddeus will not be visiting this weekend due to AAU workouts. That does not mean that a visit is out of the question though. He is obviously much more focused on improving his game at this point, as opposed to recruiting. Young is interested in business school. He is not however caught up in the idea of the "Thad 5". He will make a decision based on what is best for him, with academics being a high priority.

    This interview is consistent with the impression he has been giving and thats the fact that his recruitment is not the priority for him right now.

    I hope we can still get him on campus later this month.

    Nothing new on a possible visit to OSU at this point. Spiece Indy Heat (Oden, Conley, Cook) will play against Thaddeus Young and his team Memphis Pump and Run on Saturday at the May Classic in Indiana.

    AND THEN...

    This could add up to be a well rounded class for tOSU. Who else could count on two math wizzes dividing the post? Applying the associative property of recruiting, it doesn't matter which players we add first as long as they all get added in turn. If we get them all, then Matta will need to apply the distributive property to obtain an even dispersion which should ensure our program functions above the mean (indeed in the top percentile) for the forseable future. Sure these could be imaginary irrational numbers with no correlation to reality, but they could be real numbers based on the theory of Thad's Algorithm. There are a lot of variables to factor in, but I'm liking our odds. Q.E.D.

    It appears as though Young is a bit of a longshot at this point, although Lance Thomas could help fill that spot in an extremely nice way...

    I like the thought here, but this is college, now. Don't you think this math is a bit easy for these fellows. How about this:

    The success of the Buckeye team over the next five years will be a derivative of the area under the learning curves of several integral players. It would be fair to say that the limit of the potential of this team is infinite as the basis approaches five (Oden, Conley, Cook, lighty, and Young). A differential equation for success will be required when working with these five unique dimensions. :biggrin:

    Free video segment on Thaddeus

    Great segment into the reality that he's a stud in the classroom. He really wants to go to school for 2 years at least... good dunks in the background of videos

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    Great student athlete. Historically speaking, Thaddeus isn't the type of recruit we have been able to sway in the past unfortunately. This is a new era with Matta at the helm so let's hope all that changes.

    Hopefully this weekend we can get the Speice Indy team to get on Young a bit... and I'm sure Matta will attend the tourney.

    At this point with Young, I think we are a longshot at best. If Matta is able to get an official visit, our chances improve greatly and if Oden and Conley verbal, things could change with Young real quick.

    An excellent kid with outstanding talent, he would be a great addition to the OSU program.
