awesome!! welcome aboard!
Still not catching the ever-contagious WHINE-FLU!!!
I like Bell and Okafor that'd be HUGe literally and figurativeyl!
If we can land Okafor to go with this kid I would say that is a pretty solid recruiting class...
looks like he has a lot of athletic ability for being 6-10. can't teach that. still has a yr and a half to refine his game before he arrives. nice pickup.
Hopefully a kid who flew under the radar due to the injury and not being able to play AAU ball between the soph and junior year when most kids blow up? Seems like a big boy (which is needed) and one that can move. I like that Thad is after two bigs and he specifically mentioned Okafor...
Great Get!...Welcome Big Fella! What a time to be a Buckeye Fan! I love it..!
A poor mans Nerlens Noel? LOVE the bit about Okafor coming along too.Down the road this may be a HUGE get and in our own backyard.
We haven't had trouble getting good BB players who are less than 6' 8". The problem is with the bigger guys. I would be very happy with Dickerson and Okafor.

OSU recrt'd a tall guy, hooray!
This kid has a lot of talent especially on the defensive end! I live in Garfield Heights and I attend all of the games. His offense needs some work but he's very athletic! He can play the 4 or the five. Excellent shot blocker and good rebounder. Once he gets in The OSU weight program and develops a low post game... the sky is the limit! #BulldawgNation
The closest that I will ever get to a Buckeye ring or Gold Pants. Saw it sold on e-bay April 29, 2011 for $8500.
I don't follow hoops recruiting near as closely but I know who okafor is.. What % chance do we have at inking okafor (ballpark)?
He reminds me of MSU Adreian Payne, an Ohio boy who got away....lots of upside in my opinion,,,watch him blow up playing AAU ball this year. Good pick up and something we don't have or will have on the roster in 3 years
I wish there were more vids on him he looks smooth for his size maybe he grows that would be crazy! Is it me or are we starting to c the makings of a big class in 14? Go Bucks!
I MUST go a little Bucknuts every day.
For whom the Bell's toll.
