tOSU lands bigtime transfer (Ronald Lewis)

    Lewis is a 6'3 1/2 guard from BGSU that transferred because he thinks he needs to play pg in order to make it to the NBA. He averaged 17 points a game as a sophmore and is from Columbus Brookhaven.

    This is a strange development if you ask me. We are in possession of Jamar Butler (6'1 pg), leading for Denis Clemente(6'1 pg) who by the way is turning into one of the top five pg's in the country according to some(Matta has told him he would start as a freshman) But then he makes this move on Lewis. I don't like it. I'm Sure Lewis does well here but I think this hurts our chances to land a great pg in Clemente. Plus Lewis sounds more focussed on the NBA than he does on making his college team better.

    One question this brings to mind though, is what Matta thinks of Butler. Jamar's dad told me that Matta recruited Butler in highschool more than anyone and said Butler was crazy about him, but all of the sudden, matta is promissing Butlers job to Clemente and bringing in a transfer who is a sg but demands to be made into a pg.

    I understand we need to keep the cupboard full, but don't promise positions and starting positions. Get em all and let em fight it out. I hope Butler is motivated by this.

    I wouldn't be suprised to see Jamar play a lot of 2 in addition to the 1. Matta at X valued guards who could handle the ball and Jamar has enough offense to play the 2. Lewis could play some 2 as well. Matta seems like the type that would put the best pair of guards on the floor. A group of guards that could handle the rock with two of them being able to shift to 2 would be nice versatility.

    At one time, players transferred to OSU from big name schools. Now they come from the MAC. That's just sad.

    lame have to do better than that Tibor...everyone knows the program is not where it was 5-6 years ago or so......:shake:

    I think this is a great pick up for Matta, he knows he is behind in recruiting due to the late hiring (thanks Holbrook)......he gets a proven player who has some talent and can give them some versatility, I like it......:bow:

    Yeah, we woudn't have wanted a transfer from Indiana State in the late '70s either. The only thing that's sad is you pawning yourself off as a Buckeye fan and as someone who has a clue about sports.
