    Looks like about as good a replacement for KBD from the HS ranks as CH could find. He already has the body of a seasoned college player. I was impressed with his ball skills, too.

    Ohio State men’s basketball | Jaedon LeDee is a guard in a power forward’s body

    there is enough here to tell me that i may need to reevaluate ledee's range of abilities and what his role(s) at osu may be. he might just be for osu much more a 3 than the 4 (or 3-4) many have been expecting. the recent 2019 offers are making more sense.

    on the other hand, i think kinkaid's competition was pretty weak, so i'm a bit skeptical of his averages, specifically his efficiency behind the arc. i don't think he proved to be as reliable during aau season. regardless, our staff may still be projecting him as more of a 3 who can fill as a 4 than a 4 who can fill as a 3. that distinction may be slight, though.

    Basketball has changed. Players are more interchangeable now. The best way I can describe it is you now have guards, wings and forwards. The traditional 1-5 designation just doesn't apply in most cases now.

    well, of course. meanwhile, here is what we may be looking at for 2019:

    ledee
    gaffney
    young
    (liddell, nnaji, ramsey, gillis, etc.)
    potter
    kaleb

    the recent offers going out to guys like ramsey and nnaji specifically tell me that ledee may play more of the small forward role than the power forward role. and i'm not just talking about offense. yes, offensive roles tend to be more fluid. defense, though? you are pretty much what you defend. neither kaleb nor potter nor young nor, say, ramsey nor even gaffney is going to be the guy you want guarding a quick small forward. likening gaffney to what we saw from kbd last season only makes sense if gaffney also plays with a quick 6'4" "power forward" who can guard a player like charles matthews. who among the aforementioned list is a jae'sean tate? the only one possible is ledee. that was my point.

    Probably more like points, wings and bigs, but it's a slight distinction.

    SKULL SESSION: DWAYNE HASKINS GETS NATIONAL RECOGNITION, INDIANA REFUSED TO BACK DOWN, AND JAEDON LEDEE IS A SLEEPER

    DON'T SLEEP ON JAEDON LEDEE.
    It's easy to forget with the football Buckeyes undefeated in October, but basketball season is just around the corner, and Chris Holtmann is ready to do his magic once again.

    There's a lot of roster turnaround between this year and last year, meaning a lot of new faces will lead the way for the Buckeyes this season. Jaedon LeDee is one you should definitely know.

    The four-star small forward made the NCAA's list of six freshmen we aren't talking about enough heading into the season.

    From NCAA.com:

    Consider this: Before Chris Holtmann got to Ohio State, Keita Bates-Diop had averaged 11.8 points and 6.4 rebounds in most recent full season. In Holtmann’s first year with the Buckeyes, Bates-Diop averaged 19.8 points and 8.7 rebounds, winning Big Ten Player of the Year honors.

    Now, it’s unfair to compare LeDee to Bates-Diop. Then again, nobody saw Bates-Diop’s breakout season coming, and LeDee has a similar profile. He’s a 6-9, 230-pound combo forward with long arms and a smooth jump shot. Sound familiar?

    He’ll have opportunities to score for Ohio State, which loses most of its key pieces from last season. Will he put up the same numbers Bates-Diop did last year? No. Could he in his final season in Columbus? Absolutely.

    LeDee will probably be a complementary, but vital piece on a surprisingly good Ohio State team with future star potential. That qualifies him for this list.

    I'm high on LeDee, but my pick for sleeper of the year is Duane Washington. He'll be the best three-point shooter on the roster this season. Book it.

    The article is not terribly informed. LeDee has a very average wingspan of 6'9.5 for his 6'8-6'9 height. It's certainly nothing compared to KBD's freakish 7'3 wingspan.

    I don't think any of our frosh are going to have a big instant impact but I think Muhammad and/or Washington will have to play a lot out of necessity, so hopefully they play well.

    I agree with the Elven writer. LeDee can provide some important contributions but Washington is the frosh to really watch out for as far as scoring. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see Duane average near or more than 10 ppg. People really dont understand just yet that Holtmann has an eye for talent, he will have guys that exceed expectations as freshmen. I am not sure LeDee will be one that exceeds, but being a tall, physical presence on a team seemingly short on that trait at the 4 will be good.

    I'm hoping he brings a lot of toughness to the team. We need a strong guy in the middle that will do the dirty work and get opportunistic baskets. He won't be a huge shot blocker probably but if he can be a board monster and plus defender, we've got something in him.
