    Re: That gave Jallow an exclusive opportunity to not only field questions from the other participants about what playing college basketball is like, but also to get to know a few of the players who Ohio State is recruiting for the class of 2019.

    "One of the guys that I know we’re recruiting pretty hard, D.J. Carton, I met him when he came on campus and then I also knew him through AAU, because we played in the same tournaments, so I already kind of had a relationship with him, so I talked to him about all the stuff that would translate from the USA team to Ohio State," Jallow said. "I was rooming with Josiah James, which is another recruit. So I just got to talk to him and give him a little bit more insight than he had originally. And then also Trayce Jackson-Davis, who I played against in high school, so I got to talk to him a little bit."

    Carton, a four-star guard from Bettendorf, Iowa, who is ranked as the No. 25 overall player in the class of 2019, included Ohio State among his top six schools last month. James, a five-star point guard from Charleston, South Carolina, who is ranked as the No. 12 overall player in the class of 2019, told’s Corey Evans earlier this month that Ohio State is among nine schools who “sit in a solid spot” in his recruitment. Jackson-Davis, a five-star center from Greenwood, Indiana, who is ranked as the No. 18 overall player in the 2019 class, took an unofficial visit to Ohio State last fall.

    When Musa Jallow arrived on campus last summer, most people his age were preparing for their senior year's of high school. Jallow was enrolling in college courses.

    The Bloomington, Ind. native reclassified to the 2017 class in order to play basketball for the Buckeyes last season and despite being 17-years old for the majority of the 2017-18 season, found ways to contribute.

    Jallow scored in double-figures in two of his first three games, looking as though he would get acclimated to the college game faster than most expected. He even earned a starting role before the new-year, as his athleticism on the defensive end proved to be an asset Chris Holtmann needed on the floor.

    However, Jallow's early start quickly faded. He saw his minutes drop early in the Big Ten season as he failed to score in nine straight games. Then came Ohio State's trip to West Lafayette, Ind. on Feb. 7.

    After not scoring a single point in a month, Jallow exploded for 10 points off the bench in an upset win over No. 3 Purdue, hitting three clutch shots from behind the arc to keep pace with the Boilermakers.

    Jallow would go on to score just 13 points in Ohio State's last eight games of the season, but he said the entire experience from last season should serve him well moving forward.

    "Having a year under my belt, I definitely feel older," Jallow said. "I feel like I have a better grasp on what I need to do and what the team needs me to do and what the coaches want me to be able to do."

    I wonder what it is like in practice when Musa and Muhammed play against each other. Both of them are pretty intense when they are on the court and probably even off of the court.
    No matter what Musa brings to the basketball program I will always be thankful to him for giving up his senior year of high school to play for us when we were a little shorthanded. I hope it becomes an All-American.

    Positive contributions from Musa to open B1G play. 11 points in each of the first 2 league games, and 9 boards vs Illinois as well.
