Today is about a back surgery that went horribly bad several years ago.  In this cut throat world of recruiting, opposing coaches turned to negative recruiting and used Thad's health against him when recruiting players.  That was the only thing that could force Thad to relinquish the Head Coaching reigns.

Thad Matta has more Leadership skills and Basketball knowledge in his thumb than the vast majority of these opposing coaches will ever have in their entire body.  Tough day for Thad, tough day for Buckeye Nation but Thad will make sure the next Head Coach is the right Head Coach.  

Thank You THAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Braxton Beverly has 5 Star Basketball Intelligence, work ethic, teammate and solid 4 Star Basketball skills. 

C.J. & Braxton should should give the team everything it needs at the Point Guard position this season.

The Buckeyes have two safeties leaving after this season in Damon Webb & Eric Smith so the playing opportunity is right there.  Plus 2 DBs just transferred in Norwood & Burns.

Ole Miss looks like it will not have the services of one of their signees.

For a while it looked like the Mississippi Rebels would have the services of one of the better long range shooters in the class of 2017 in Parker Stewart, but the three-star prospect has decided to change gears. On Wednesday Stewart asked for a release from his Letter of Intent.

Stewart confirmed the news simply informing Scout.com, "Yes I have asked for my release."

Initially Stewart committed to the Rebels over interest from Nebraska, Wyoming, and Kansas State.

The replacement for Thad Matta is Thad Matta driven more than ever if that's possible.

Thad is in the process of bringing the program back to prominence but very few can understand and see this.

Cam Johnson is on his West Coast trip right now, already visited Arizona, and visiting UCLA and Oregon.

Kentucky just added Kevin Knox but he says that won't impact his decision.

When he returns, Thad may still get a visit from him.

Ohio State is closest to home and probably provides the best opportunity so we will see.

The chances are very good.

When these guys watch the Buckeyes play this year they will see a really good team and how good the team can be going forward if they come aboard.
