If you could pick one guy to finish out the 2015 class with, who would it be? Who are you recruiting the hardest to close out this class?

What do you see as your strengths on the court? Has Thad or the staff told you anything particular they want you to work on before arriving on campus?

Going to college so far from home is a big step. What about OSU made you comfortable enough to leave Texas when many of the local schools were offering you as well?

What is a typical basketball workout for you? What drills do you do, how long, etc? What is your favorite part about this game?

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Most experts thought that Ohio State had no chance to pick you up, and then you took that unofficial and committed on the spot. Going into the visit did you think this would happen?

Are you developing a good friendship with Mickey Mitchell who is also from Texas? Are you looking forward to your official visit to Ohio State for the Virginia Tech game?

How do you feel about the decommitment of Mickey Mitchell? Are you still going to try to get him here?

 Good updated question. My question was before the decommit. Ugh.

Austin, there has not been a freshman shoot over 38% at OSU on 3-pointers since 2007.  The vast majority have shot under 35%, many have been under 30%, and a few have even been under 10% in that timespan. Even the great Jon Diebler, who shot 50% on 3s as a senior at OSU, was under 30% as a freshman.  So it is safe to say most freshmen don't step right in at OSU and shoot a great percentage from 3. Do you think you will be ready to help change that trend next year?
