Four Ohio State freshmen will go toe-to-toe in a slam dunk contest on Thursday.
True freshmen Felix Okpara, Brice Sensabaugh and Roddy Gayle and redshirt freshman Kalen Etzler were announced as participants for a dunk contest on the outdoor courts at the RPAC later this week as part of Ohio State's "Buckeyes on the Blacktop" event.
Starting at 7 p.m., the event will be open to the public as both the Ohio State men's and women's basketball teams will have some fun on the courts to entertain fans. Aside from the dunk contest, there are expected to be 3-point shooting contests and fullcourt 5-on-5 scrimmages.
Ohio State hasn't held such an event since 2016, when Buckeye athletic director Gene Smith got in on the action to show off his skills, as seen in the clip below.

If you can't make it to the event, Eleven Warriors will be on hand to post photos, video and updates, including who takes home first-place honors in the slam dunk contest.
