Welcome back to Buckeye Bits. Before we go any further, Ohio State basketball needs your help in advancing in this very serious and official tournament.

Okay, none it’s not even remotely official, but don’t you just like beating Michigan in things?

Anywho, we here at LGHL like to keep our readers informed with all that is happening in the Ohio State sports world and beyond. We need you all to keep up! So, here it is. Everything you need to know in one place.

From around Land-Grant Holy Land...

Ohio State offers four-star small forward

Dan Hessler, Land-Grant Holy Land

No one really knows what is happening with the current state of the Ohio State men’s basketball game...

but that doesn’t mean Chris Holtmann isn’t making moves to better their future, starting with offering one of the nation’s top talents in the 2022 recruiting class.

Opinion: The best and worst parts from 2016 OSU-Michigan

Tia Johnston, Land-Grant Holy Land

The 2016 Ohio State vs. Michigan game was the best/worst time of my life. If you know, you know. And if you don’t, you’re probably not a Buckeye fan (in which case, why are you here?)

Buckeye Bracket: The greatest Ohio State play of the decade

Gene Ross, Land-Grant Holy Land

You (yes you!) decided the best damn Ohio State play of the decade in our Buckeye Bracket! Have a guess which play won? Hint: whatever you’re guessing, you’re probably correct.

From around the gridiron...

Jeff Okudah models his game after NFL’s best cornerbacks

Dave Biddle, Bucknuts

If the projected No. 3 overall draft pick reminds you of one of an NFL cornerback, but you can’t put your finger on which one, its because he models himself off of multiple, hense the whole “No. 3 overall draft pick projection.”

Unknowns at wide receiver for Ohio State beyond Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson make it difficult to guess the third starter

Colin Hass-Hill, Eleven Warriors

It’s easy to get excited about both Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson at wide receiver next season*, but who comes after them? If you can believe it, Ohio State has some five-stars up its sleeve that are sure to put an end to that question very soon.**

*if there is a next season


Momentum builds for a February-to-May college football season in 2021

Mike Florio, NBC Sports

Via Sports Business Daily, ESPN’s Chris Fowler said the idea of a 2020 college football season played from February to May (2021) is “gaining momentum.” Have a million and two questions on how that could possibly work? Same.

Poll: Will an Ohio State tight end reach 25 receptions in 2020?

Dave Biddle, Bucknuts

Will 2020 be The Year of the Tight End for Ohio State? With a rather impressive group of tight ends returning in Luke Farrell, Jeremy Ruckert, Jake Hausmann, etc., that just might be the case. 2020 is wild.

From around the hardwood...

Ohio State basketball coach Chris Holtmann thought the Buckeyes were a Sweet 16 team

Doug Lesmerises,

During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Holtmann believed his 2019-20 Ohio State basketball team had the potential to make a good run in the now-cancelled NCAA tournament, in case you needed something else to be bummed about.

Ohio State’s C.J. Walker will go through NBA pre-draft process, but “fully expects” to return for senior season

C.J. Walker is testing the NBA market. However, he’s able to go through the evaluation process while maintaining his college eligibility. He must decide if he wants to remain a Buckeye or not by June 3. It’s sounding like he will likely return, but then again, 2020 is wild.

On the bright side, Harvard transfer Seth Towns has now been introduced as a Buckeye. We kind of already knew he was a Buckeye, but this makes it more official I guess.

From everywhere else...

The Cleveland Browns are revealing their new uniforms tomorrow, I think.

Isaiah Todd Decommits from Michigan, Will Turn Pro

Jason Jordan, Sports Illustrated

Michigan basketball lost a five-star commit one day before the start of the NCAA’s spring signing period. Ya.... hate to see it.

The University of Cincinnati had to discontinue one of their sports programs, which will likely, unfortunately be one of many schools to do so.
