    Oh, heck yeah! Great job by Coach Holt.man bringing him in. That's pretty close to a home run in my eyes.

    really like the particular comment about the weight training program. tells me a lot about the type and mentality of future players that ho1tmann and banks are striving for. also tells me what kind of progress we should see from kaleb.

    Sweet! Awesome news! Key will be a reliable starter & leader for the team next season, assuming he doesn't decide to turn pro instead. Huge addition for OSU!!

    just looking at keyshawn's most recent season, i'm not seeing a player who will relieve as much of jackson's ballhandling duties as we need. however, when i look at keyshawn's jump from charlotte to wake for the sophomore season, i am seeing a player who may spell jackson a bit more than it initially appears. that 3.5-to-1.7 ratio (compared to jackson's 3.9-to-2.1) is very promising. between jackson, woods, muhammad, and washington, we may have a quartet from which any duo may work as the 1- and 2-guards. next year's distinction between the point and the off-guard projects to be very murky. i don't see that as a bad thing. the biggest question mark is ball security and decision-making with under 3 to go in a close game.

    Honestly, a lot of 5-star recruits won't be as productive and efficient next season in college compared with Keyshawn. This addition is a home run. I know CH will cater to his strengths, and I believe one of his best traits is being able to catch and shoot efficiently - him and CJ both being able to do that and handle it a bit is going to make this team so much better.

    Anyone who shoots a high percentage from three is good in my book.

    Fantastic addition, one of the more proven grad transfers out there in terms of what he was able to do in the ACC and playing really well and starting a lot of games for a 2016-2017 Wake Forest team that made the Dance.

    We, above all things, needed to add some scoring on the wing. We lost so much there between Kam, Tate, and KBD, and none of our returning guys averaged anything higher than 4.1 ppg (Potter). Our best incoming offensive freshmen (Washington and Ahrens) are not T100 recruits and do not project to be instant impact with their scoring. Getting a guy who averaged 11 and up two seasons in a row in the ACC is major. He might not have quite the total points to show as guys like Cremo and Mooney, but he has better percentages than a lot of the grad transfers out there not named Cremo and he did it against better competition than almost all the other grad transfer wing scorers who have been available this off-season.

    The PG situation is still not ideal but I feel so much better about our backcourt situation overall going into next season with senior CJ, Woods, Muhammad, and Washington than I did last season with junior CJ, Kam, and Dakich. Now we need a forward or two to really step their games up. Hoping at least one of Andre, Young, or Jallow has a breakout season.

    WHAT KEYSHAWN WOODS' COMMITMENT MEANS FOR OHIO STATE BASKETBALL IN 2018-19

    [​IMG]

    With the departures of Andrew Dakich and Jae'Sean Tate, Ohio State was getting set to enter the second year of the Chris Holtmann era without two of its three primary ball-handlers from a year in which the Buckeyes finished second in the Big Ten.

    On Tuesday, the Buckeyes got some help, as graduate transfer guard Keyshawn Woods announced he will play his final year of eligibility in Columbus.

    Woods took his visit to Ohio State during the same weekend the football team played its spring game, and was also reportedly interested in Louisville and Virginia Tech. Less than two weeks after his visit, he made up his mind.

    Woods will be eligible immediately for Ohio State, so let's take a look at what he might bring to the floor next season for the Buckeyes.

    ON THE COURT
    Woods has shown the ability to get to the rim off the dribble at times throughout his career, but it is his perimeter shooting that stands out when you watch his film. With good size at 6-foot-3, Woods is a career 42.5 percent three-point shooter who has the ability to catch and shoot but also create space for his jumper off the bounce.

    While he was relegated to a role off the bench for most of last season for Wake Forest, Woods showed he can create for others as well, averaging 3.5 assists per game as a redshirt-sophomore in 2016-17 with the Demon Deacons. During that year, he posted his best overall season, averaging 12.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game to go along with his assist numbers.

    He has an established mid-range game and can also use his size to defend when he has to. There is a good chance he will push C.J. Jackson for the starting point guard role, though the two could see the floor at the same time as well, as Holtmann used Jackson and Dakich at the same time at certain points in 2017-18.

    IN THE CLASS
    Woods officially gives Ohio State six newcomers to the program for the 2018-19 season. He joins a four-player 2018 recruiting class as well as Florida State transfer C.J. Walker, who will join the team this season but will have to sit out due to NCAA transfer rules.

    The addition of Woods likely means less playing time for the likes of Duane Washington, who figures to have a Musa Jallow-like freshman year now that Woods, Luther Muhammad and Jackson all figure to play premier minutes on the perimeter this season.

    Holtmann has said that Jallow will likely be a candidate to handle the ball more next season than he did as a rookie, but with the addition of Woods, Jallow might be able to play more on the wing, which should fit his skill set more.
