This week, Connor and Justin are joined by four-star small forward Scotty Middleton, who is also the newest member of Ohio State’s 2023 recruiting class. Scotty currently plays for Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, but he’s been moving from state to state most of his life. We had the opportunity to hear Scotty’s story, including which city he’ll (probably) want the PA announcer to say he’s from when he gets to Ohio State.

We also spoke to Scotty about his official visit, his relationship with the other members of the 2023 class, and his goals for his upcoming senior season at Sunrise. We close with a rapid fire round of quick questions, including asking what his go-to road trip snack is and who would win an arm wrestling match between Chris Holtmann and Jake Diebler.

Connor and Justin also took some time to break down Bronny James’ ever-evolving recruitment, and what a commitment to Ohio State would look like. The impacts would extend far beyond the basketball court, that’s for sure.
