OSU will have a good freshman class coming in next year. However, Oden will have some big shoes to fill with Dials. Who do you think O.J. Mayo will go to? or maybe just to NBA?

To bad Dials didn't have one more year!! Could you imagine with him and Oden down low!! I don't know what Mayo will do or where he will go? I thought I read somewhere he thought about going to West Virginia? but don't quote me on that.

Mayo could go anywhere. Remember he`s not origionally from Ohio. He has really no ties to this great state. Didn`t he come from Kentucky?

The future is looking pretty bright for the Buckeyes when it comes to recruiting. . . .I will feel a whole lot better when the final NCAA investigation ends, it still hangs like a dark cloud,but everyone believes there will be no more serious sanctions such as tourney bans for another year, but who knows for sure.

Next year's class, barring action from the NCAA will have all world Greg Oden and Mike Conley from Indianapolis Lawrence North, currently 15-0 and winners of 31 straight last time I checked, David Lighty from Cleveland VASJ and Daeqan Cook from Dayton Dunbar, and 6'9" Othello Hunter from Hillsbourogh Community College in Tampa.

Matta doesn't seem content with just this year's season class, since Oden will probably just make OSU a stepping stone for early entry to the NBA. . . . .this year's junior class led by Jon Diebler of Upper Sandusky who has given a verbal and the Bucks really would like to grab 6'9" Dallas Lauderdale of Solon and 7'1" Kosta Koufas of Canton GlenOak from the junior class. Before Koufas broke his foot about 3 weeks ago he was averaging 25 pts,13 rebounds and 7 blocks per game, Lauderdale, a close friend of David Lighty, averages about 22 ppg and 10 rebounds for undefeated Solon. Diebler is all ready an Ohio legend and averages in the 30+ area and who doesn't need a 6'7" point guard???? OSU also covets off guard Rakim Sanders a 6'4" player Barrington RI and he has been offered already. Supposedly OSU waiting on Sanders is the reason they have not offerred Dante Jackson, the 6'5" point guard from Greenfield McClain. From the junior class the Bucks have also offered 7'1" Solomon Alibi (what a great name) from Nigeria. . .Alibi is still learning the game but has a world of potential and another year of HS to perfect his game, he is playing for a private school in Montverde, Florida.

Down to the sophomore class they still have a verbal committment from BJ Mullens of Columbus World Harvest Prep, another nearly 7 foot project. Another current sophomore OSU is closely watching is 6'8" forward Delvon Roe from Lakewood St Ed's who, as a soph is averaging 19.6 ppg and 11.3 rebounds for a very solid Lakewood St Ed's team.

I don't see any chance whatsoever of O.J. Mayo or any of his sidekicks giving OSU a glance. . .he will likely play 1 year and go directly to the NBA for certain. . . .where is anybody's guess, had Huggins remained at UC I would have guessed there, but now who knows. . . .Louisville or West Va would be as good a guess as anywhere.

Greenwave88- i also think they have a good shot a getting to the final four IF Oden stays and plays. If he goes to the NBA Some freshman from the 07 class are going to have to step in right away and make plays.

bucko- good point the buckeyes have a very good chance to make it to the final four of even win the national championship. If oden and conley stays it will be another good year for the bucks, but if they go pro then Dallas Lauderdale, Jon Diebler, and Kosta Koufas (if they sign) will have to fill in for Oden and Conley.


Go bucks!!

Lots of talent heading to Columbus to join the talent that is already there. The biggest task will be to keep everyone happy and develop some sort of chemistry and a sense of team play. The teams with the best talent don't always win; the best TEAMS almost always do.........

I think it would be good for OJ to go to college to develop his game...I think he will end up going to somewhere else though I would love to see him at our state capital next year but I dont think he will go....I think he will want to be the main man somewhere by himself....

someone on this board said that Oden wanted to get his degree, but I seriously doubt someone with his talent would stay in college.
I wanted to have a career in sports when I was young, but I had to give it up. I'm only six feet tall, so I couldn't play basketball. I'm only 190 pounds, so I couldn't play football. And I have 20-20 vision, so I couldn't be a referee. ~Jay Leno

First off this next years class is not to be called the "Fab 5" That makes me sick thinking of the team up north. This group of players should be called the "Thad 5" I did not come up with that but saw it on ESPN and liked it.

Here's a "Timeout!!" for all those UM fans!
