OSU Men's Basketball Recruiting/Projections/General Discussions

    There is so little film on this guy that it really makes it hard to comment on his potential beyond the obvious physical characteristics that he possess. On the little I can find, he reminds me of the archetype Syracuse big man that recruits for their zone. With no defensive three second rule in college that physical stature and length can be game changing.

    I say offer him and hope he accepts. Wesson will be gone in two years. I would like to know who is on the radar to take when Wesson is entering his senior season. We need to take a big man and hope he pans out.

    I think Roderick is probably in the same boat as Diallo and at least the latter has some size. I think we have enough wing players especially with the class coming in.

    There is an opportunity to take both if someone transfers, class balance be damned. If Roderick was more than marginal athlete he would be a top prospect.

    With Will Wade in the news we might be able to make a run at Lester Quinones if we want to adding some shooting.

    Thinking this may be JJ's son as I'm quite sure Satch didn't have another son lol...but anyway I thought I'd drop the vid in case someone might have more info.

    yep, that's jj's son. very impressive tape. not that sons and nephews must go through growth spurts at the same time as their fathers and uncles, but i'd certainly like to know how tall jj was as a freshman before topping out at 6'5". or how tall jared was before growing to be 6'9". regardless, jalen looks like an offer with the hope that he reaches 6'3"+.

    edit: if i remember correctly, jared said at least a year ago that jalen would become the best sullinger.

    edit: jalen is a 2021 recruit, so he's obviously a sophomore, not a freshman as i stated.

    found this article from 2016:


    between jj, jared, and evan in jalen's ear, it almost seems like the bananas should already be limbering up.

    any thought to taking both Roderick and Diallo with the thought of redshirting 1 (or both) of them as if they were a 2020 prospect? Who in the 2020 class is even favoring us? Zeb is gone, Loveday trending away, who knows with Penn......Just spitballin here

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    I’m certainly no expert but can’t see any reason to be in a rush or any reason to take 2. I just can’t see that.

    I’d actually be ok sticking with the 3 we have and see what the transfer market looks like. I’m just a fan of being patient. We landed 3 studs so there is no reason to be in a panic mode just because the current team has had an expectedly rough year.

    a current or incoming player would have to depart for osu take both roderick and diallo. even if one or both of them were to redshirt, they'd still count toward the scholarship limit.

    With EJ and Gaffney coming in, I really do not know where Rodrick would fit with Luther, Washington and Ahrens already here. I just did not see the need for him. I see a need for a big man (Diallo or maybe a transfer) because as I have said before we really do not have a backup plan for when Wesson graduates. I know that is two years down the pike but I would like to have someone in here learning out to play the 5 position in the Big Ten.

    With regard to Penn, all the recruiting sites that I have access to still are pointing him to Ohio State. I guess it would be nice to have two good PG's on the roster and Walker and Penn would do that.
