I'm very excited and hopeful about this kid. Three years of eligibility left, Seems like he can play in the post very well and this guy can DUNK! Adds some depth to our forwards this coming year. Will be plenty of young talent in Athens next year.

Seems like a good kid. Great pedigree from Hargrave and 4-star recruit, going to Louisville etc. Not a ton of college production but we know bigs can take some time, plus he enrolled a year early just like AJ Clayton so he's still young.

6'11 size and length, check.
Can shoot the 3, check.
Lots of positives to work with here.

Feels like he could slide into BVP's vacated starting PF spot next to DW3 next year and then possibly transition to starting C after that. Question I have is, can he guard enough on the perimeter against 6'6 MAC PFs or will his defense (even though he can shoot it on offense) limit him to the 5 only?

Regardless, I think this is a really good get for Boals and staff.

P.S. could do without the "Roll Bobbies". What sorority intramural team is he referring to? Bobbies....smh.

Wings: Miles, Brod, AJB, EJ4, Transfer PG
Posts: DW3, Witzniker, Ezuma
Fighting for time but intriguing: Frazier, Estis, Olumide, Sheldon and Hadaway

If we get a 10 ppg, 5 apg point guard this team will be just fine.

The well wishes from Louisville fans on his Twitter show we are getting a good dude with some skills -- he can be out Skogman.

Pardon the pun, but this looks like a big deal to me!

I donít know about Boals, but a good Big Man was the top of my needs list.

YOU can do without it but if you search Twitter for hashtag rollbobbies you will get a ton of results from Ohio Managers to Ohio football, baseball, equipment, and track among others. Not quite as ubiquitous as #BleedGreen but seems to be plenty prevalent.

Is that the brain child of the same marketing geniuses who pushed the Attack Cat over the paw and get their pants in a wad if somebody says "Ohio U" instead of Ohio?

Next they'll tell us Bobbies is more PC and child friendly so we need to move in that direction.

If we need a unique marketing hashtag how about #GoBobcats or #WeAreOhio or...

Fair points, but I've seen "Roll Bobbies" stick a lot more among the common student population now. Admittedly I use it on the O-Zone Instagram from time to time.

The more I think about it, I view this signing as what the "upside" of the domino effects of the transfer portal will look like going forward.

I don't think we get a transfer like Wiznitzer in years past. Yes, we've got "low-performing" transfers from high majors in the past, but never a 6-11 big who was a 4-star recruit who is still only 20 (still time to develop)

In the past, I think Wiznitzer would stay at Louisville another year, probably would've redshirted and/or not come out of high school a year early AND if he did transfer he probably ends up at another high major. The dynamics of college hoops have radically changed, but I still believe Ohio can field some talented and competitive teams.


I've seen crazier things happen.

In two roster years at OHIO he averaged .2 ppg, .6 boards, .1 assist

This is a solid and optimistic take.

There are 4 star guys, and then there are 4 star guys. Wiznitzer sounds remarkably like another 4 star big man recruit that some may be familiar with. Had a number of big time offers, including OSU. Went to a national championship contender two years ago and his butt has been glued to the bench ever since. The only difference between Wiz and Zach Loveday at Baylor is that Loveday has not entered the portal. Loveday is originally from Gallipolis.

4 star in some ways is the great dividing line. Is the 4 star kid closer to being a 5 star, or a 3 star? In both these cases it appears to be the latter.

Loveday, wow - it feels like this kid graduated in 1994. COVID really did a number on these last few years.

He had offers from a couple blue bloods in addition to *everywhere* else.

Not sure Ohio would even be on his list should he enter the portal, but I might start tweeting Roll Bobbies ;) at him several times a day just in case.
