    John Hugley Still "Wide Open"
    While Ohio State chases Dain Dainja, Zach Loveday, Dawson Garcia and Mark Williams, all post players who have an offer from the Buckeyes, John Hugley hovers over the conversation.

    Hugley, a four-star big man from Brush High School, is the fourth-best in-state prospect and plays a position of need, yet has not received a scholarship offer from Ohio State.

    "If I get the offer, it would be fine, but if I don't, just keep working," Hugley said.

    Hugley, at 6-foot-8, 260 pounds, is the No. 152 prospect and the 26th-ranked power forward in 2020. After Session I of Nike EYBL in Atlanta two weeks ago, his recruitment blew up.

    He didn't receive an Ohio State offer, but Cincinnati, Florida State, Iowa, Florida, Buffalo, Kansas State, Missouri and Georgia Tech all offered him scholarships in a six-day span. Pittsburgh, Missouri, Nebraska and Xavier had already offered, and they only intensified their pursuit of Hugley.

    "It was crazy," Hugley said. "I mean, I was expecting them, but I wasn't. I knew if I kept playing hard that some offers were coming in."

    At some point, likely this summer, Ohio State will have to decide whether or not to offer Hugley. And unlike recent commit Kalen Etzler, he's not an absolute lock to choose the in-state power school even if offered a scholarship.

    Hugley didn't grow up a fan of the Buckeyes, though his high school coach Chet Mason has a tight relationship with assistant coach Ryan Pedon, whom he played under at Miami (Ohio). He mentioned Ohio State being the "hometown" school as a reason for his interest in the program, and he called Holtmann a "real good coach."

    "He just keeps it real," Hugley said.
