That's an excellent story. He'd be the kind of kid I think the program could really rally around. 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Great read... I will admit I am probably a little too optimistic about 2019-2020 Buckeye Basketball squad.  So much so that I am looking forward to the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas. I am sure we will probably lose but how sweet would it be to give Kentucky the beatdown they deserve.  Thinking about booking flights to Vegas for the weekend to watch it with the wife, given her grotesque love for UK.

IIRC we beat Ktuck in our last meeting about 4 years ago in a reg season game.... all time record Ktuck 11 wins tOSU 9 wins.

This is true... Winning that one was glorious. Especially because of how we rolled into that game losing to some very poor opposition.  I will always reminisce that one from time to time in the offseason to pass the time on the elliptical and make the cardio a less brutal.

Coach Holtman has been nothing short of amazing since arriving. After the losses from the previous season, that roster had no business making the tourney as most thought pre-season. Can't wait to see what he does with a much more balanced roster. Another great performance gotta have a nice extension in the works hey Gene?

I’ll never understand how someone could not like pizza.

I know I buried the lead a bit with that.

I wonder if anyone told him about the red pepper flakes?

Even bad pizza is good! Obviously some are better than others. 

Class of 2001 - classless since then.

The ONLY reason he doesn't like pizza is that he hasn't had Tommy's

Yet

Dowuona and Diallo would be pretty cool to see.

Since he grew up a soccer fan, I wonder if the Columbus Crew's heavy Ghana connections could help attract him to Columbus?

Crew starting defenders Jonathan Mensah and Harrison Afful both also play for Ghana's National team. Reserve defender Lalas Abubakar is also from Ghana.

Osusteveb5875...I can espacially if you're brought up on something more nutritious.....seafood and more natural (paleo) like food is better than cheese and more cheese.....I'm a pizza lover myself...

Kind of a carbon copy of the last player signed, not sure if we can handle two projects but if he does redshirt that would put some time between them and allow them both to progress I suppose. Then again, do you turn down size which has been lacking the last five years?

Ghana was a British colony.  I think it used to be known as the Gold Coast.  1957 Independence.

Nice read!  I’d love to see him paired up with Diallo.

Eb is better than Diallo! Doubt you would ever see them on the floor together, neither is skilled enough to play the 4 over Gaffney or Liddell who I think will rotate there along with Young, Gaffney or Liddell and Jallo can either play the 3 as well. This team will have a bunch of interchangeable parts. Ahrens will have to play he is clearly the best shooter on this team by a good bit. The 2 PG and Muhammad and Washington along with Ahrens playing the 2. This team will be fun to watch!! Big thing that is overlooked most of the time is how well do the freshmen defend?? That will determine how much and how soon they see the floor?? This won't be Iowa! If you can't defend at a high level you won't play a lot! These practices would be fun to watch!
