Great to see each of their jersey numbers confirmed. . . now it's time to work hard and prepare to add numbers to the score sheet and score board.
Love the coaching staff's approach of not basing decisions on how many stars the recruiting services give a player. . . probably why 25% of three star Buckeyes end up being drafted.
Always delighted to get the top recruits from the talent rich Buckeye state.
I still think KW has more to gain by coming back to sharpen his game and help his team than being a second rounder at best and very possibly not even drafted.
Boy this coaching staff under Day's leadership is really on top of things . . . not only recruiting but especially recruiting!
While these transfers do not appear to be game changers offensively, where they will make solid contributions, if their ball handling skills help cut back on turn overs and increase assists they will be a solid addition to the team.
I hope coaches like Mattison and Johnson are making as much impact with their younger coaching peers as they are with young recruits. They do an impressive job in both coaching and recruiting which I hope they can pass on by example and teaching tips to their younger coaching peers.
"ESPN’s latest mock draft didn’t have him getting selected, and The Athletic’s big board ranks him as the No. 51 overall prospect." I seriously doubt KW will be playing for an NBA team, more likely in Europe. Still hoping he coms back for his senior year to improve his game and his standing for next year's draft . . . not to mention what it would mean to his current teammates and leading the Bucks to a very successful season next year.
I do believe that Holtmann did what was BEST for Carton because he is a high quality person who does NOT lie. Shaming was not even close to what I meant and I hope Carton moves on, COMPLETELY RECOVERS and does well wherever he goes. This was not about downing a person...only that it was disappointing to lose a quality player.
I remain most disappointed in Carton's decision to leave. . . especially after ALL the support he received from the coaching staff, his teammates and the fan base.
While I wish the best for any Buckeye player I am still not convinced KW is NBA ready let alone CJ... but if he can learn something to help improve his game more power to him.
Coaches who not only know how to coach and recruit but also high quality people and families. A huge positive for prospects and parents when deciding where to commit on signing day and often earlier.
All three of these men and their families are "class acts" and speaks highly of the leaders of our sports programs.
Grateful for the new guys transferring in to help fill some gaps but I still prefer original commits honoring their word and sticking with the program and teammates they originally committed to.
This will be a very heavy Junior class which will be challenge finding replacements next year when they become seniors.
Appreciate what KW has done for the bucks but not sure he is NBA ready. "Maybe" a second rounder but more likely headed to Europe. Still hoping he comes back and continues to develop his game. . . not to mention greatly helping his current team take the next step.
Day leads a coaching staff that not only knows how to coach but recruit. . . not to mention they are quality people a parent would love their kid to play for.
This coaching staff under coach Day is doing a remarkable job! Keep it going for years to come.
Wish him the best as a person but I'm still disappointed that he left after all the staff and fans did to support him.
Welcome aboard young man. . . Buckeye pride and all. That "proud to be Buckeye" spirit is greatly appreciated especially with some of the things we have faced in recent days.
Good news! Great to see a player honor his commitment. . . and a quality player at that!
Is it just me or do the coaches need to look more closely at issues like personal character, classroom discipline, team loyalty, a team first mentality, etc? Here is a player that could even crack the Bucks starting five and he is going to pursue pro options . . . seriously?
KW sticking around for one more year would not only greatly help the team but would give him an additional year to sharpen his skills for his desired NBA selection. Not sure he is NBA ready at this point. Maybe Europe but not NBA.
Day is proving to not be just a solid hire but a great one. Thanks Gene and also thank you Day for hiring top quality coaches who can not only coach but recruit. Keep it moving in this right direction.
A number of high profile programs wanted this kid and with Coomb's ability to maximize a players talent it will be fun watching what this kid can become.
