Ohio State Buckeye Basketball Recruiting and Its 2016 Promises

Washington Wizards v/s Philadelphia 76ers November 23, 2010

Thad Matta has been in charge for the Ohio state basketball team since 2006. The OSU basketball head coach had impressed us with his Thad Five where he decided to use the services of five high-profile recruits including Mike Conley, Greg Oden, David Lighty, Othello Hunter and Daequan Cook. Within almost ten years of time, Coach Matta is known as the winning-est coach in program history after presenting a number of successful seasons for the team as well as for the fans. This year, Matta is still pretty confident about his strategy as he has signed a number of new players that are believed to meet his expectations. This time, the head coach decided to fill his 2015 recruiting class with Daniel Giddens, JaQuan Lyle, A.J. Harris, Mickey Mitchell and Austin Grandstaff. This recruiting class has not come up with a nick name though.

Sticking with the same team he had last season is almost an impossible mission as he had lost a number of crucial player including D'Angelo Russle. Thad Matte soon realized that he had to make an immediate impact to the team by presenting a new wave of The Thad Five.
