Nick Glass Interview
Ohio State scored a big win over Illinois Sunday in front of a future Buckeye guard and one of the nations top 2015 prospects. See what Kam Williams had to say about his visit to Columbus.
Baltimore,Maryland native and 2013 Ohio State commit Kam Williams had the chance to check out the campus he will call home the next years over the weekend. While on his visit to Columbus, Williams also had the opportunity to vibe with his future coaches and teammates and take in the Buckeyes 68-55 victory over Illinois Sunday afternoon. Even though the 6-2 175 lb guard is probably counting down the minutes till he suits up in the scarlet and gray the four star Williams still has some unfinished business on the high school hardwood. Kam leads his Mount St. Joesph squad into action Thursday evening versus Bishop O'Connell (VA) in the 53rd Alahambra Catholic Invitational basketball tournament. Land-Grant Holy Land had the opportunity to speak with Williams and get a little inside view into how his weekend went.
The visit was awesome from start to finish. They showed me all the new additions like the locker room and pools. Then I got in the gym, which was great, I put up about 500 shots (hit 334 of 504). All the guys showed love, cool dudes and of course the game was great, big time atmosphere, great crowd. I really had a great time.
As a future Ohio State baller watched the game a potential Buckeye was also court side Sunday. Esa Ahmad, a 2015 forward out of Shaker Heights made the short trip down to Columbus with his family and coach to meet with the staff and watch the game. Even though the 6'8 210 lb sophomore hasn't been offered by the Buckeyes just yet, he has been getting increased interest from the staff to go along with offers from Dayton, Xavier and the Miami Hurricanes. Ahmad definitely went out and proved he is worth all the hype on the court and was recently named the NOC valley player of the year for his outstanding play. I had the chance to catch up with Shaker Heights head coach Danny Young Jr. and asked him how the visit went:
The visit went very well. We sat right behind the Ohio State bench. They took us in the back to talk with the team and visit with the coaches. We met Jared Sullinger and Greg Oden. Coach Matta and Jeff Boals talked with us about coming back down in the spring. The game was fantastic, the atmosphere was electric.
Do or Die Season for Grant (the ozone)
Former 5-Star LB Putting Complacency Behind Him
By Brandon Castel
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Curtis Grant could only grit his teeth when talking about last season. The junior linebacker knows he let the opportunity of a lifetime slip through his fingers.
“I got too complacent; that's the only thing I can say,” Grant said last Thursday after Ohio State's second practice of spring football.
“Couldn't handle the glory of being a starter, I guess. Should have kept working harder.”
A former five-star prospect, Grant came in with as much hype surrounding him as any linebacker to walk through the halls of the Woody Athletic Center since Andy Katzenmoyer.
