Ohio coach John Groce continues to be the top focus for the Illinois search, but a deal has not been struck.
Barring an injury in the next two weeks, Ohio State freshman guard Daequan Cook will sign with agent Mike Conley Sr. and stay in the NBA draft.
He just got into the business, but Mike Conley Sr. has plenty on his plate in representing Greg Oden and possibly others, Andy Katz writes.
Don't cry for Ohio State. Even after losing Greg Oden and maybe Mike Conley Jr. and Daequan Cook, the Buckeyes should be quite formidable next season, writes Andy Katz.
Ohio State freshmen Greg Oden will declare for the NBA draft Friday, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com Thursday night.
Mention Ohio State and Greg Oden's name follows. But without point guard Mike Conley Jr. the Buckeyes wouldn't be playing for the national title, writes Andy Katz.
