Keyshawn Woods Is The Next Andrew Dakich But Better


Andrew Dakich was one of the biggest reasons why OSU did so well during their first season under Chris Holtmann. His leadership skills coupled with his abilities as the backup point guard made the fifth-year senior stand out during his last year of eligibility. Keyshawn Woods represents all of that and even more.

Having committed to the Buckeyes a couple of weeks after attending a spring football game, Woods picked OSU over Louisville and Virginia Tech. Dakich spent only his final year of eligibility with the Buckeyes, and it looks like Woods is going to do the same. He's bringing some very impressive numbers along with him.

When he played his freshman year at Charlotte, Woods averaged 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game on top of an 8.4 point scoring average. The 182 lbs. The 6-foot 3-inch guard shot 47 percent beyond the arc in the 32 games he played. Despite being a backup, Woods started on three different occasions that year.

Having transferred to play with the Demon Deacons, he averaged 12.2 points while playing at Wake Forest. He still had very accurate shooting numbers and averaged 28.3 minutes of playing time per game. These sorts of numbers encouraged Holtmann to lure him over to the OSU squad.

Keyshawn Woods is the second guard that joined the Buckeyes as a transfer in the offseason. CJ Walker, who previously played with FSU, plans to suit up as well. He'll be unable to play this season due to the fact that he's not a graduate transfer.
