Normally Friday afternoons are reserved for slipping undesireable news past the media. Not this time. GOOD GRAY BOX - TELL THE PEOPLE YOUR NEWS:

Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas has decided to stay at Ohio State and will play for the Buckeyes next season as a junior. Per the university press release:

"Deshaun, his family and our coaching staff have spent the last week evaluating his future," Matta said. "Deshaun determined he wants to remain a Buckeye. We are looking forward to building on the success our team enjoyed in 2011-12 with Deshaun playing a significant role next year."

Thomas' decision to stay significantly improves the Buckeyes' outlook for the 2012-13 season and gives Ohio State a solid returning core along with Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith.

Have a great weekend. THE TANK WILL RIDE AGAIN!
