KBD to tOSU. Ouch.

So yes, this one hurts. We only have one scholarship to give in 2014, and in my mind, it was KBD's and KBD's alone. He would have been the perfect fit for the roster John Groce has recruited - an athletic wing who would fit perfectly with the 2013 class. With him, our 2014/15 season looked really promising. Without him, well, it's going to depend on who we get. Groce has recruited a solid supporting cast. Now he needs to find a star. And I think KBD was that star. That's pretty depressing.

But...

It's certainly not the end of the world. John Groce has all of next summer to take this one scholarship and find a star. In getting Austin Colbert from New Jersey and getting close with Demetrius Jackson, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, and Tyler Ennis, Groce has shown a willingness go of out-of-state to find the roster he needs. It's a long way until signing day, and this staff will have options.
