OSU Men's Basketball Recruiting/Projections/General Discussions

    osu has been kicking around the tires for over a year now since greer was initially a 2020 recruit before delaying to 2021. the recent 2021 or 2020 comment is interesting. greer's plan to play this summer and then make a decision would fit osu's schedule if carton departs.

    edit: greer's 247 composite is 224th. this is wrong by at least 100 spots.


    Lynn Greer remains undecided on his college enrollment date

    should start a thread for reid since an osu offer has almost certainly been extended. probably will wait for something official, though. kinda like that reid prefers to play his recruitment close to the vest. also like that osu is the first school out of his mouth. throw in that osu was reid's first official visit and, well, the buckeyes look to be in a very good spot. if reid stays in 2021, expect osu to be one of the finalists on decision day.


    Five-star junior Efton Reid talks his recruitment, possibly reclass to 2020?

    maybe whitt needs a thread. he's another 2021 point guard who may reclassify to 2020, which could become a priority for osu this spring and summer. staff looking like they don't want to be mike conley'd.


    Carter Whitt weighs reclassifying, working on visits

    @OSU_Buckguy I do not quite understand where we are going to get the scholarships from for the players that you are mentioning since we are already over signed for 2020 and I would think that we are looking at Branham for the 2021 class in addition to a big man such as Duncomb, Bediako,……. I have no idea where we stand for any of these guys but it seems like we have been in on some guys longer than others. I certainly know that you know more about where we stand with certain guys and maybe you do not think we have a very good chance at the Ohio guys for 21. I do not mind creating threads for recruits. In fact, I sort of enjoy it. Just give me the word.

    1. yeah, we are over the limit by one for 2020-21. i think the staff is just preparing for the likelihood of kaleb departing and the possibility of carton departing.

    if carton joins kaleb, then we'll undoubtedly need another point guard for next season. since walker will be a senior who can handle the bulk of the minutes at the 1, we don't need a grad-transfer point guard. moreover, signing whitt or greer for 2020-21 (providing they reclassify) would be better for the 2021-22 team since we wouldn't be relying on meechie and another true freshman, which sounds like a recipe for a meal full of problems. i don't want to assume that we're always going to have another conley, craft, or carton.

    if carton returns for his sophomore year, which looks to me as probable right now, then the staff will have lost nothing by recruiting whitt, greer, etc. and it's not like whitt or greer will necessarily reclassify to 2020.

    i think the 2021 recruiting class will be 4-deep with meechie, a shooting guard, etzler, and a post player. if carton leaves after his sophomore season, i'd prefer the fifth player be a grad transfer at the point. as stated, signing another 2021 true-freshman point guard looks a bit hairy.

    2. oh my, i don't know more than anyone else. i'm certainly not "in the know." just looking at the bits and pieces we're given and assuming stuff from that. no doubt that i'm wrong far more often than i'm right. but thanks for the kind words (from you and a couple other recent posters).

    3. you certainly don't need the word from me to start a thread on whitt. i know i've hinted a few times that i may start one, but pretty much the only reason i haven't is because i'm too lazy.

    If Jallow redshirts it is really going to make 2021 recruiting... Interesting. I think Jallow could have great value as a 5th year player, so I'm not down on that at all, but we could end up in a scholarship bind with a bunch of wings, one PG in true frosh Meechie (if Carton is gone by then, and that's feeling like 90 percent to me), and betting heavy on Key and Diallo in the post. Branham is the top priority it seems, and I get that, but feels to me like we REALLY need an elite PG/CG (or top grad transfer PG) and an elite big in the class. I am not ruling out another early entry or two but we won't likely know about it before next early signing period, so really filling out the class as much as the staff seems to want is going to depend on transfers or spring recruiting.

    You probably hit the nail on the head with that statement. The '21 recruiting class is going to be all about who is on the roster. Almost all of it will depend upon early departures whether it be transfers, Europe, or the NBA. If any of these guys play like they did against WVU none of them will be going anywhere or should I say no one will want them.

    one to watch. somewhat interesting because, in my opinion, camden is a better version of etzler.

    I was going to start a thread on him but during my research:) I started thinking that he was a lot like etzler physically but probably a better shooter. I also could not tell if he had a "offer" or not:wink:

    i've seen nothing to indicate that camden has received an offer. don't think that this is another unpublicized offer as with efton reid. there is plenty of interest, though. perhaps one is imminent. don't know.

    Terrance Williams to scUM. Heckuva first class for Howard, especially if Todd sticks. Currently the top class in the B1G by a wide margin and a Top 4 class in the country.

    tape is a 6'10" pf/c. staff making preliminary moves as if kaleb might not be the only post-season shakeup. interesting.
