Johnson Commits to 'Cuse; Groce Taking OU Job

Published reports say Iowa State transfer Wesley Johnson has committed to Syracuse.

Bob Baptist spoke with Johnson last week and the indication was he would visit OSU before July 6th but that's out the window as Johnson settled on 'Cuse without visiting any of the other schools on his list.

In other Buckeye Basketball news, 1460 just reported Matta's right hand man John Groce will take over as the head coach at Ohio University.

Groce had been with Matta for eight years and the fact he's leaving should not be a surprise. Bucknuts reported yesterday that Groce was in Athens on Wednesday to discuss the vacancy.

11W says good luck to Groce. He will definitely be missed but it's time for him to run his own program.
