Love seeing the outstanding talents represent themselves as better people.
I wonder if OSU is recruiting him ? Not sure what is going on with Thad's recruiting but he wins big ten championships like its easy and goes to the final four but there is no buzz anymore. Over the last six years we always have two or three can"t miss players lining up. I'm wondering if his reputation is starting to get tarnished with young kids. Remember cook was unhappy, same with koufos, then Thomas was frustrated as a freshman, then he sits a McDonald's aa like Williams instead of giving him a chance, not to mention the kid from miss and two transfers. I love Matta. This is clearly the 2nd golden era of OSU basketball. However, he may need to be more player friendly or the recruiting well will dry up.
The buckeyes are recruiting him and have offered a scholarship but I read and article from ESPN I think it was a couple weeks ago that basically said he would like to stay instate but he wouldn't rule out leaving the state. That can be viewed a couple different ways tho. First is he sincere in wanting to stay close to home. Or is that a front to keep the home fans happy? I think he will want to win and if Illinois don't look good enough to win a championship he will go elsewhere, hopefully here. Sam Thompson is also from Chicago as is lenzelle Smith so that should help. Don't forget Evan Turner is also from Chicago.
