Wesson is definitely the more polished post player at the moment but Manley's upside is through the roof. The dunk Manley finished over the Westerville South defender to seal the game is why he will excel as an ACC post. Give him 3 years to develop and add the right body mass to his long frame and he has NBA potential. Appeared to have 3 inches over Wesson. It was two really contrasting styles and Kaleb showed why, in my opinion, he will be just fine in the BigTen. Big body banger who seals well around the paint but plays below the rim. It's too bad tOSU didn't take both.

As a fan of high school sports in Ohio I am not a fan of pushing commitments towards prep. It could damage relationships w high school coaches when you push their best player to prep school. Let kids be kids and play for their local teams w friends and fans that love and support them. It's bad enough high school coaches have to fight w AAU but now have to fight w prep schools. If this trend continues we can do away w high school sports as we know it.

"Come. On. Man."

Calm down, take a drink of water, re-read your profanity laced posts and then take your meds before hitting submit next time ...

Since you mentioned UNC, I will just mention that they came in our backyard and offered a 6'11 kid our staff hadn't even bothered to keep tabs on until it was too effin late ... it's the same story over and over and it's getting old

Can't say I'm sold based off the offer list, not saying that's all we should go off of but it's a copy cat League and none of the other big boys were in on him. Stealing recruits away from Miami of Ohio doesn't sound like a recipe for competing w Mich State or contending for BigTen titles. The Craft comparisons are automatic - both undersized white boys, lol. Here's to hoping he is half as good as Craft was for us. These past few recruiting cycles just suck.  Can't belie we didn't land a Markell Johnson or Dwayne Cohill and haven't offered a legacy kid like Jeremiah Francis yet. I'm afraid PG play is going to be this years team Achilles heel bc still not sold Lyle is a PG. He likes to create for himself and score first. He is more of a 2.

Oh well ... in Thad we trust ... I think

The 16U All Ohio Red team is coached by former Buckeye Matt Sylvester. I couldn't be happier for Coach Sylvester. A great guy and a great Buckeye bouncing back from his personal family tragedy and making a positive impact on our young ball players.

Also, Goodwin appearing to really start coming into his own. I questioned the early offer but he is proving me wrong. It's going to be fun to watch him continue to develop. Go BUCKS!!

along with Gillison and Jeremiah Wood) potential Buckeyes lining up for the Panthers.

Gillison and Henderson are at Pick Central which is the Tigers, not the Panthers. We'll let it slide this time but don't make that mistake again around these parts, lol

Boals to Stony Brook ...

Dickerson to South Carolina ...

Deibler to Vandy ...

its starting to look like the player transfers all over again. lol. I'd love to see Kuwik and Jent. Possibly even Fuss from Ohio U. Glad Thad is shaking the staff up, new energy and new blood is exactly what this program needs.
