As Ohio State remains in the news due to the past transgressions of former coach Jim OBrien, the current Buckeyes under Thad Matta continue to make huge strides to rebuild the program. A 20 win season this year and now this. If this holds true OSU will have landed four 5-star blue chip recruits in one class, which is just amazing.
Edit: Just so you don’t think I’m homering this, here’ s a blurb from CBS Sportsline:
Ohio State or Wake Forest: Oden is expected to choose between the Buckeyes and Deacons, and while we here at SportsLine.com like and respect the coaches from both schools, our guess is Oden (and his best friend and teammate, highly rated point guard Mike Conley) will choose Ohio State. If that happens, the Buckeyes would join Duke’s 1997 haul (Elton Brand, Shane Battier, William Avery, Chris Burgess) as the best recruiting classes of all time. Ohio State already has commitments from two top 25 recruits from the class of 2006, Daequan Cook and David Lighty. The 6-5 Cook would have been a potential NBA first rounder in 2006.
