Need to get Kyle Young here. He would contribute immediately.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Would Young have to sit out the upcoming season? Not really up-to-date on the BB recruiting calendar, when they sign their LOI, etc.

I believe he could leave (if Butler releases him from the LOI) and NOT have to sit out because Butler's summer term doesn't start until June 26.  So he hasn't actually enrolled yet, so it wouldn't technically be a transfer.

Kyle has not yet reported on campus but HAS signed his LOI.  Butler would have to release him from the LOI and if they do he would be eligible immediately.  

You WIN with people.

Bukirob is correct. Kyle Young is not yet on campus but did sign his Letter of Intent back in November during the early signing period. Thus, Butler would have to grant him his full release — they should due to the coaching change — and he'd be free to go wherever he wants and not sit out any time. 

We'll see what happens.

If we get Kyle Young and maybe one or two others! We could have a very very surprising season. 

What you plant now, you will harvest later.

Both Kyle Young and Aaron Thompson would be big gets for this season.

That's great, because, you know, Twitter never lies!  I'm looking forward to the official announcements.

Go Buckeyes!!!

Twitter lies, sure. But it isn't from some reporter..it's his personal bio. I doubt he would put it in there if he hadn't already accepted.

He'll have to change his twitter handle...  :-)

Go Buckeyes!!!

Patiently waiting on the new strength and conditioning coach to be named. My hope is we can somehow develop a hybrid of Coach Marotti and Coach Coombs. 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

For some reason This make me think Muscle Milk and Red Bull should collaborate.

The offseason is the longest season.

Red Milk... It's just blood

If we are combining red and muscle why not this guy?

Hopefully, the new strength and conditioning coach is better than his predecessor, Betty Crocker.

There has to be some kind of lab in the country that could make this happen!

Love it or leave it!

Its hard not to feel things are moving in the right direction now vs a couple weeks ago.  Keep this momentum moving in the right direction.

The offseason is the longest season.

I look forward to seeing the new staff develop players and inject energy into the program.  I believe time will show Holtmann to be a home run hire.

Pedon is going to be huge in Columbus, I was really hoping he wouldn't get the Butler job b/c he's a recruiting stud. It'll be interesting to see how Jordan does at Butler.  I know a lot of Michigan fans assume he'll be UM's coach after Beilein, so Butler will be a good test for him.

"With the news late Monday night Butler already found Holtmann's replacement in LaVall Jordan, it seems like only a formality before Holtmann's staff at Ohio State is in place."

Excellent. I really wanted Ryan Pedon to be on the OSU staff. Guy is a recruiting wizard.

It doesn't disappoint me one bit if Holtman brings his entire coaching staff with him. They've certainly done well in the Big East, and it sounds as if Pedon (in particular) is a good recruiter. Having previously worked together would be a big plus, especially given the late date of this coaching change.  Now just bring in a good S&C coach.

Good news for us!

We'll have Ryan Pedon for a bit before he becomes a head coach somewhere.

That's going to be true with every good assistant.

Yep.  If nobody tries to hire away your assistants, you're not hiring well enough.

A source told IndyStar that Ryan Pedon is also leaving for Ohio State. On Sunday, the other full-time assistant, Mike Schrage, accepted a position with the Buckeyes.
