Matt Terwilliger (official thread)

It's funny that it's being said it was in a close battle with Cinci. I had heard basically direct from the source that Cinci wasn't in the picture at all, rather it was Notre Dame that presented the competition all along. Which isn't to say word of Cinci was necessarily, wrong, just goes to further demonstrate that with recruiting, stories can vary from one day to the next.

Regardless, terrific recruit, score another one for Obie the "subpar" recruiter. :wink2:

I've played against Terwilleger, (I think he scored 27 points or something but we are'nt very good) and I he needs to get a lot stronger in my opinion. He didnt really dominate the game, but his heighth always helps. If I remember correctly, he needs to work on his footwork also. Im pretty sure he travels a decent amount, but they dont call that nowadays so maybe it wont matter. I do have to say that I was very surprised to find him as a 4 star player per rivals. That being said, I think he could help veyr much at Ohio State, I just dont think he can do so immediately.

Big Ten tourney will be what it will be. We should be able to get past the first round of the NCAA without Dials, let alone without Terwilliger. However, playing the second round game could be a challenge if Dials gets in foul trouble.

That said, if we make it to the Sweet 16 it gives us over two weeks for Matt to get healthy.

IMO we don't go far without some quality minutes off the bench behind Dials.

There was a game in the big ten where Dials and Twig both had 3 fouls and That didnt go with Bell. He went 5 peremimter players.

I wouldnt want to go a whole game like that but I think it would be kind of interesting to be able to really pressure the defense to extend on us.

We could go Butler, Foster, Lewis, Sylvester, Sullinger or put Harris in to have some height.

Twig was really coming on tho, we will need him at some point if we want to make a big run in the tourney.

Speaking from experience, i'd be surprised if he came back before 2 weeks. If so, he'll prolly be very limited. Hopefully, they got it early and the surgery wasnt too invasive.

This sucks.

He's been making great strides as of late! URGH
