We’ve heard a lot that the latest recruiting class for the Ohio State basketball team is loaded. The question we’ve all been wondering is exactly how loaded is this class? One incoming freshman for the Ohio State basketball team gave us a little taste of what he can do in his first season as a Buckeye.
Brice Sensabaugh put on a clinic in a summer league game at the Kingdom League. Sensabaugh dropped a whopping 50 points in his last game.

What impresses me the most from Sensabaugh’s scoring outburst is he was able to do it on all three levels. He was pouring them in from deep, scoring off the dribble, and slammed in a handful of dunks. Having another go-to scoring option on the floor will help this Buckeyes team out a ton next season.
The Kingdom League has had many former pros, as well as former and current Buckeyes, play in the league. Jared Sullinger has played in it before. Last summer, E.J. Liddell and Malaki Branham played in the Kingdom League. Branham also dropped a 50-ball in this league, and we all know how his lone season at Ohio State went.
According to 247Sports, Sensabaugh is ranked 61st in their national rankings. That puts him as the 4th highest-ranked player committed to Ohio State for this upcoming season. So, he isn’t even the “best” recruit Holtmann has coming in if that tells you anything about this recruiting class.
The number one concern the Buckeyes have had in previous seasons is not having multiple scoring options. The roster for next season is full of scorers at all positions. I have high hopes for the players that came in this offseason. Whether it was from the transfer portal or they’re an incoming freshman, the Buckeyes will have a lot of scoring threats next season.
Sensabaugh reminds me of a much bigger Duane Washington Jr. He can score and create just as well as the former Buckeye standout. After his recent 50-piece, I am really excited to see Brice Sensabaugh next season in the Scarlet and Gray.
Next season’s roster is full of talent. How Holtmann decides to use it will be the key.
