Ohio State Staff To Check Out Pierce

On September 27, 2012 by Buckeye Empire

Basketball fans from across the nation know that Thad Matta can coach Bigmen.  Over the last few years Coach Matta has had his fair share of talented post players and turned  ballers Greg Oden, Kosta Koufus, BJ Mullens & Jared Sullinger into first round NBA Draft Picks.

The next player the Ohio State coach might have found to fit into that role

Ohio State will watch 2014 Center Satchel Pierce (Left,#22) next week.

is recently reclassified 2014 Ohio native Satchel Pierce.  The 6’11 250lb Pierce who  transferred from Akron St.Vincent St.Marys to Kiski Prep (PA) after last season uses his size and athletic ability well on both ends.

A shot blocking threat every time he is on the court, Satchel has talked to many coaches including the Buckeyes boss “I’ve talked to Coach Matta a couple of times, they are showing interest and want to watch me play,they are supposed to come next Wednesday or Thursday for an open gym”.

With recruits setting up visits to University’s every weekend Pierce is taking a more wait and see approach “I probably will visit when I have a break from school and me and the coaches can work out when will be the best time”.  The Kiski Prep Center is hearing from schools from around the Midwest to go along with recent offers from James Madison and Miami(Ohio).
