Write up on Jamyron Keller from 24/7 on 8/1:

A 6-foot-1 elite athlete out of Killeen (Texas) Ellison High, Keller can thrive in any system because he plays a positionless brand of basketball. He has the size of a guard, the build of an elite running back prospect, and the athleticism that translates at any level of Division I basketball. The best part about his game is how he combines his high motor with his elite athleticism. Both equate to production on both ends. Whether it is guarding an opposing four-man, grabbing a rebound, or finishing a play, Keller can be relied upon to make something positive happen in almost all areas of the game. His jumper and nuances of running an offense are where he needs to make the most improvement but his toughness qualities and ability to make plays that others cannot at his size is where his value lies.

Question…
OSU Basketball Twitter put out a Pokes in the NBA for our history. Buncha names ivr never heard of from the 40-60s then you have your Big Country, Desmond Mason, Tony Allen, Marcus Smart, John Starks and a few others. One thing I noticed was 2005 had 4 guys go pro. That was right after the 2004 Final Four. So if you look at our last 40yrs have we ever really been a “basketball school” or been above avg as a program? Or were we just blessed that Eddie got Tony Allen, John Lucas and the Graham twins and McFarlin off transfers and they turned into pro players? Looking at the last 40 yrs besides 2 final four runs imo it doesn’t feel like OSU basketball has been much, which hurts me to type this, just curious….?
Travis Ford was here way too long. Thanks a lot, Holder.:mad:

Sounds like the point guard at Ohio State. Another player can't shoot.

Highlights look like he’s an athletic freak that likes to get to the rim. So we have athletic freak Quion and athletic freak Jamyron for the future. Now let’s pair that with some shooters

It's impossible to watch his highlights and not be reminded of Ice. He's a little bit shorter, but his build is very similar. Even his shooting mechanics look similar. Hopefully he's able to be more of a threat from the perimeter.

It’s the hair also. Jamyron is only 6’1 and doesn’t have the wingspan Ice has. But their games are pretty different. Jamyron is a better shooter and more athletic (verticality wise) compared to Ice coming out of high school. Even though the two were/are ranked similar star wise, Jamyron has played against better competition more regularly. His ranking should also go up before the end of the year considering his stellar play this summer during the EYBL tournaments. He and Garrison are an excellent start to the 23 class.
