Two former Ohio State Buckeye guards are on the move after missing out on the 2019 NBA Draft and not catching on anywhere in the states. As reported earlier today, C.J. Jackson and Keyshawn Woods have officially signed their first professional contracts after spending the last month working out for NBA teams and suiting up in The Basketball Tournament for Big X.
Jackson is heading to Köping Basket in Switzerland, and Woods is off to Holland’s Feyenoord Basketball. Their former coach, Chris Holtmann, caught wind of the news, and made sure to congratulate both on the big news.

This signing comes on the heels of an impressive finish for both players. The guard duo was instrumental in turning Ohio State’s season around late, and were it not for Jackson’s late game heroics against Indiana near the end of the season and Woods’ sudden arrival in the Big Ten tournament and NCAA tournament, Ohio State was likely NIT bound. The two combined for nearly 28 points a game in Ohio State’s five games of the season, and Woods’ 19 points in a first round win against Iowa State was a season high for the senior.
Haskins tosses his first touchdown
It was a big night for Dwayne Haskins on Thursday, as Washington took the field for their second preseason game, this time against Cincinnati. After struggling a bit in week one, Haskins found his footing last night, completing 7-of-14 passes for 114 yards, and his first NFL touchdown pass: a tremendous 55-yard bomb to Robert Davis, under heavy pressure.

It’s hard to imagine that Washington can keep him off the field for very long, especially when the presumed starter is either Colt McCoy or Case Keenum, both of whom have a severe diagnoses of noodle arm.
