OSU Men's Basketball Recruiting/Projections/General Discussions

    I think that's a big problem with the lack of quality assistants. Drop off in my opinion from the quality of guys when Thad first started

    As far not landing the big fish I think any non blue blood program is gonna have trouble going far outside their area to McDonald's AA caliber guys

    Outside of Shannon Scott I don't think Thad landed a burger boy from Ohio or a surrounding state. Ohio hasn't put out the elite talent other than the Kennard/Bragg class. Indiana pipeline has been shut down with other programs being up in the area

    Talk about range:

    Scoonie Penn's son, who I think is a freshman starter at Coffman.

    Curious as to what happened with tOSU and recruiting Ward. He went off on Maryland today for something like 22 points and 18 rebounds.

    Ohio State is taking a look at the following recruit from Michigan..

    Cannot get very excited about him but I can get excited about his teammate who already has an Ohio State offer but is in the class of 2019.

    A bit late in response, but pretty much everyone knew that Ward was going to MSU as soon as they offered. That is the school he wanted to go to for a long time.

    Articles mentioning a lot about guards being a priority. Not sure if the staff doesn't trust Beverly, or what. We obviously offered Smith of Illinois and Cohill, but I just don't see the need to worry about guards until the '19 class. We will get at least two good guards in that class, I am quite sure. Looks like snaring Cohill, Hunter, or Pete Nance are the current targets.

    Still between us, TSUN, Tennessee, and DePaul for grad-transfer Daniels.

    Cameron Johnson of Pitt is visiting tomorrow. He visited Kentucky and will visit Arizona also. Don't know who else he's considering.

    Elijah Long of Mount St. Mary's is another name to keep in mind, but he wouldn't be available next year. Apparently the Bucks have contacted the six-footer, who has two years left of eligibility.

    SW IL Jets director Andre McMurray just said on @TayandJShow that Ohio State called for Javon Pickett's transcripts.

    Matta should offer Tilmon :biggrin: out of East St. Louis who was committed to Illinois before the coaching change.

    No news out of Daniel, who we pretty much desperately need at this point if we're going to do anything next year. I did not realize he missed all but two games last year, averaging 27 ppg in 2015-2016. I don't see how we aren't the most appealing option at this point, seeing as there is room for him to chuck 15 or more shots a game on this team. Any 2017's out there we could still snag?

    I know it's not going to happen, but I would even take a flyer on Torey Patton of Trotwood and Jayvon Graves of Akron. Both of them strike me as under-recruited guys who just ball. They would probably switch from Akron and Buffalo, wouldn't they?

    We need bodies.

    I guess I would rather save the scholarship considering next season is going to be pretty bad and I am usually pretty optimistic when it comes to the basketball program. If there is a change in the HC after next season,, the more scholarships available the better and these two guys would just be, as you mentioned, bodies.

    Minus Kam, Jae'Sean, and Joey Lane, plus Ahrens and Goodwin, we are looking at needing to add four more scholarship players next year. That's just crazy talk. You aren't going to get that many quality guys in a class this late (would be six total), so they might as well stock up on a body or two this year. I think they need to pull a 2017 out of the air to at least make this season respectable, in terms of just fielding a team (even MAC-level talent). Lane doesn't even deserve to count, and we can't really count on KBD for a full season. We are looking at maybe 8 roster slots filled next year. Everyone gets in the "rotation"!
