Transfer Portal college basketball players associated with Ohio State hoops

It’s the new norm for college basketball, and it especially seems to be Ohio State over the last few seasons. The transfer portal – the gift that stays, um – gives well.

It used to be that the roster design consisted of recruiting guys and then either keeping them for a few years or making them a one-and-done prospect. Sure, you could add a guy once in a while as a degree transfer, but it was few and far between.

Now, with the brave, new world of players falling into the transfer portal left and right, you need a flow, chart, protractor, and a little pixie dust to perform some secondary recruitment to either keep a guy or get a spit out. of the portal to your application.

It seems to be the same for OSU hangers this offseason. The Buckeyes have already tapped former Wright State guard Tanner Holden to get along with the scarlet and gray, and it has been linked to several others. We’m pretty sure there are some names out there that we just do not know about, but thanks to Columbus Dispatch here are all that we’ve heard about so far.

We take on this journey in alphabetical order.
