    name to remember for (much) later: mike sharavjamts.

    sharavjamts was a freshman last year (2022 class). arrived before the start of the season to play at a small private school in xenia. from mongolia. yes, mongolia.

    extremely impressive.

    Without knowing his height and projected position... I would call him a point gaurd, kid needs to play against older kids pronto. He has a skillset that you get excited about

    6'6", which makes his projection so tantalizing.

    but what makes mike's future even more tantalizing...

    mike shot 54% (22/41) behind the arc last season, though only 50% (16/32) from the line.
    mike's dad is 7'0".
    mike's dad was a harlem globetrotter for a few years in the early 2000s.

    He's the type of kid that you just have to let his game blossom into what it's going to be, because making him work with countless trainers could potentially ruin something special if they don't taylor the training to his skillset...will definitely be keeping a close eye on this kids development

    interesting that the first school mentioned is the one school that has not offered.

    Bill Hensley Run 'N Slam Top Performers

    mentioned garvin clarke a few times in this thread (link). though osu looks past the point of getting a true point guard for 2020, clarke will be a player i'll watch going forward.

    snow also lists branham as one of the event's top performers. or the top performer, really. as long as branham has it together between his ears, an offer from osu should be coming pretty soon.

    not so good for penn when all-ohio red's new point guard (who is also undersized) is already getting more pub.

    My son played with Malaki in middle school. Got to see him play as a 7th grader. Was the best player on the floor even as a 7th grader. I didn't see him play when he was in 8th, but from what I hear he was nothing short of brilliant.

    So are we not going to grab another grad transfer center? Seems like we are just gonna roll with Wesson, Young, and Diallo if he doesn't redshirt. I guess unlike last year we have Gaffney to fill in when Kaleb inevitably gets in foul trouble.

    I don't think we were ever really looking at grad transfer centers seriously. It was Diallo to add depth and, yeah, Kaleb and Young playing the center minutes mostly.

    days after sueing's visit to osu, which obviously ended without a commitment, osu's official twitter account just started following sueing. probably nothing, but...

    I will wait until the news is from something other than an unnamed source before celebrating, but he could be a terrific addition.

    OSU_Buckguy Senior

    a year of no games and a ton of practice for sueing to work on his 3-point shot. yeah, he would be terrific addition.

    quite the battle next season between jallow and ahrens. sueing's playing time the following year would drastically limit the other available minutes at the 3, which is not even considering the expansion of liddell's game. jallow obviously has the upper hand on defense, but ahrens' role as a 3-point assassin might give the team a bigger boost.
