I would consider both Alabama and Clemson to be pro-style, not sure if they’ve been very successful though.

On a serious note, as a previous comment mentioned it is a very broad term, e.g. a spread offense and up-tempo can still be pro-style.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but if I remember correctly Jaxson wasn’t recruited very heavily until very late in the recruiting process. He didn’t even play on Moeller’s varsity team until like his junior year, and as a previous poster has said he was raw and growing into his body. I believe Holtmann tried but we already had a 4 person class and had Jaedon Ledee in that class with Micah Potter still on the team.

I’m down for a Wimbledon tennis thread. Go Fed!

You have to spend the rest of your life on a deserted island... Which current player on the OSU basketball roster do you take with you? Don’t say why

Colin you’ve been killing it with the basketball coverage since you started here. We haven’t had as in-depth coverage of the team since I’ve been roaming the 11W pages. Granted, the team has been much more fun to cover the past 2 years.

Thanks so much for this thread! I’ve been waiting for basketball recruiting threads for way too long, didn’t think others would be interested in it. Recruiting is obviously much slower since there are less signings each year, but I think what Holtmann is doing on the recruiting trail right now is really interesting.

I’ve listened to Jardy’s podcast (BuckeyeExtra) for the past two seasons. He’s not super “bubbly” per say, but I love how deeply he covers the team and seems to know most of everything that’s going on, and gives very logical takes that are right most of the time. And he really loves covering the Buckeyes (for basketball), truly believes it’s one of the best jobs out there.

I’m going to Hawaii for the second time next week! Spending about half the time time Maui and half in Oahu. Hawaii is my favorite place in the world.

So were Marc Loving and Amir Williams. Heck Williams was a McDonald’s All-American. It isn’t that the group wasn’t talented, it’s that everybody was known for their lack of effort or lack of playing for the team and not for themselves. Loving, Williams, and Lyle are prime examples of lack of effort. Della Valle left the team to go back to Europe (more than anything I think he’s just funny to refer to for people that remember him), and Grandstaff left a few weeks into his freshman season, went to a few other schools, and eventually quit basketball as a whole.

I hope that doesn’t come off as condescending, I just felt explaining my thought process might help. If you still think the joke is ruined I’m sorry, you are allowed to have a different opinion and I won’t be upset. Feel free to add in anybody who you think fits the list better!

I’m sorry, but I have to say this is a pretty bad take. Just go by Sweet Sixteen appearances alone in the past 30 years and OSU has UC beat 8-5. We have been to 3 Final Fours compared to their 1, and made it to the finals whereas they haven’t since their championship since they got runner up in 1963. They do have more regular season conference championships but I mean come on they play in the AAC which is a joke compared to the Big Ten. Yeah they used to be in the Big East but that was only for 7 seasons and still doesn’t compare to the Big Ten in strength.
