Trevor Thompson Aiming For NBA Draft

Trevor Thompson

Trevor Thompson is an Indianapolis native who played his first full season as a redshirt sophomore at Ohio State. Last year, Thompson opted to explore the NBA draft when the season ended, while also retaining his college eligibility. It seems that he will be trying again this year. However, he will return to Ohio State if the NBA draft is not favorable.

Ryan Thompson, his father, shared with The Dispatch in a telephone interview that the situation is different because Trevor's performance was much better this year which proves that he can play at the NBA level. For the 2015-2016 season, Trevor Thompson averages per game were 5.1 rebounds, 17.9 minutes and 6.5 points. However, when he returned to the Buckeyes, freshman Micah Potter took the starting center position during fall camp. Thompson was able to start after Potter was injured. After, Thompson achieved the title of honorable mention all-Big Ten because of his improved average game stats of 9.2 rebounds, 23 minutes and 10.6 points.

Dante Booker Looks Set To Impress

Dante Booker

Staring his fourth season with the Buckeyes, Dante Booker may finally receive the opportunity to strut his stuff.

Like all teams, there are a few questions about Ohio State going into the 2017 season.

Will the team cope with losing three players in the secondary, given that this is the second year running it has happened? Will new manager Kevin Wilson get the offense back to the former glory of its' 2014 national championship campaign? Will the Buckeyes go back to College Football Playoffs on the third occasion in four years?

These questions are fairly general, and relate to the overall shape of Ohio State in 2017. Until the football begins, we will not find out the answers.

OSU Women's Basketball Team Speeds Toward The NCAA Sweet 16

KelseyMitchellOhioState

When OSU beat Kentucky 82-68 in women's hoops on Sunday, their victory ensured that they're headed to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the second year in a row. The game was also a huge victory for OSU's star junior guard Kelsey Mitchell, who became the Big Ten's all-time career three-point leader.

Many athletes would have considered the achievement quite impressive in its own right, but Mitchell seems focused solely on the tournament. When pressed for an answer about what this record means to her, Mitchell reminded journalists that the tournament is about acting as a cohesive team. She considers herself more of a team player than an individual.

Mitchell also invoked a popular phrase when she told reporters that she wants to survive and advance before thinking about anything else. Teams around the Big Ten use this refrain to remind themselves that you have to survive each individual game if you want to make it to the Big Dance.

Billy Price Is The New Ohio State Center

BillyPrice

Billy Price is now the Ohio State's Center and is one of the four returning starters for the team. Clemson beat Ohio State 31-0 at the Fiesta Bowl during the College Football Playoff. Quarterback J.T. Barrett was helpless with Clelin Ferrell, Carlos Watkins and Christian Wilkins on the field for the other team.

Barrett had two interceptions but was sacked three times by the Tigers. Michael Jordan, the left guard injured his ankle in the first quarter, and was replaced by Demetrius Knox. Jordan is returning in 2017 along with Jamarco Jones, left tackle and Isaiah Prince, right tackle. Billy Price, the four-year starter, is also to return as team captain replacing Pat Elflein who is going to the NFL. Although the Buckeyes have four returning starters from the previous season, Price's move to center leaves a void. However, Greg Studrawa does have some options to fill Price's old spot on the offensive line.

Joey Bosa Defensive Rookie Of Year

JoeyBosa

Not surprising hardly anyone, Joey Bosa became the Defensive Rookie of the Year for the NFL in an awards ceremony on Saturday night held in Houston. Joey Bosa had a spectacular year in his rookie season with 10.5 sacks in only 12 games. The season was curtailed for him at one point because of conflicts in his contract with the San Diego Chargers. However, once he got back on the field, he proved himself among the best defensive players in the NFL.

Amazingly, Joey Bosa managed six of the sacks in the first five NFL games, remaining strong throughout the season. He showed especial prowess during a game against the Falcons late in the season when he sacked Matt Ryan two times, boosting the Chargers into a overtime win of 33-30.

Saturday was full of some amazing announcements. One such announcement was that the Luke Fickell just received a green light from the Cincinnati Bearcats to be their head coach. Fickell was previously the defensive coordinator for Ohio State.

Buckeyes Make CFB Playoff History; OSU Meets Clemson In Fiesta

Coach_Dabo_Swinney

Just moments ago, Ohio State made CFB playoff history. The announcement will go down in the permanent records as one of the most exciting happenings yet.

Perhaps the most amazing news is that Ohio managed to get into the playoffs without dominating the conference championship. That's what makes this a piece of history. OSU is the first team to pull something like this off.

Ohio State University is going to be playing against Clemson in the Fiesta bowl on the last night in December. Clemson is the number 2 seed and OSU is the number 3 seed. The square off should be quite interesting for both parties.

The number 1 seed spot goes to Alabama. Alabama will be going up against the Washington Huskies, who hold the number 4 spot.

Buckeye Attention Turns To Demario McCall

Demario McCall

Demario McCall from Ohio State is showing that he is better than everyone thought

If MSU does not upset the odds, the young back ought to be worth watching in coming weeks.

After proving his potential against Rutgers and Bowling Green earlier this season, running back McCall was sidelined when things took a turn for the worse for Ohio State over four games in October. Nonetheless, with the Buckeye's consecutive 62/3 wins over Maryland and Nebraska, McCall has again caught the eye of the Ohio State team. Curtis Samuel, the H back, is on course to have a great season, so many have earmarked him for the NFL Draft of 2017 already. If this is true, then McCall may be OSU's next game changing playmaker.

Malik Hooker Announces His Intentions

Malik Hooker

Malik Hooker 'absolutely certain' that he will return in 2017

Malik Hooker rose from obscurity to nationwide fame this year, as a record breaking safety for Number two Ohio State. He mentioned, in a Dispatch interview on Monday, that he is in no rush to depart, even if some people believe that he may enroll in the NFL draft after the season is finished.

"At the moment, it is absolutely certain that I am returning to the Buckeyes" Hooker said.

Hooker is a year three sophomore from Pennsylvania, who did not obtain starting status before this season, following an apprenticeship behind Tyvis Powell and Vonn Bell the prior two seasons. However, Hooker shot to notoriety in 2016, with six interceptions - featuring three that he sent back for touchdowns. That was a career record and a record for Ohio State's season.
