Ohio State freshman Jared Sullinger promised he will return for his sophomore season, and Ohio State coach Thad Matta was not surprised by that promise in the shadow of the Buckeyes' 62-60 loss to Kentucky.
"I'm going to be an Ohio State Buckeye next year," Sullinger said. "Winning is that important to me. I don't like losing. This is not what I came here to do. This is not what I came here for, to sit here and see my seniors crying. I came here to win a national championship, to see them celebrate. I wanted to tears of joy with these guys."

If there is a lockout this could be a good move. If there isn't I don't understand coming back. If he does stay though it does make next season better if a legit star stays around.

Didn't Greg Monroe say the same thing after G Town lost last year? These kids say anything right after a tough loss, If Sully actually stays I have to respect that and wish more underclassmen would follow suit.

Awesome. We have a good recruiting class coming in next season as well.

Rivals underranks their incoming class.

It's easily top 5.

They have four ESPNU top 100 prospects coming in, all of which rank in the top 15 at their position. The fifth commit they have is underrated as well, and he's actually quickly climbing up the ratings boards.

OSU is my #1 next season.

Unless Knight and Jones decide to turn pro.

OSU has a good class but it doesn't really have an instant impact type of player like Sullinger or Irving. Don't get me wrong it's a good class but the players in it aren't instant impact kind of guys they are guys that will be really good later in their career but I don't know if it is enough to make them #1 next year.

:sigh:

They will be losing a lot in terms of veteran players. But, if he comes back they are instantly the favorite in the Big 10.

I can see him changing his mind after a bunch of peer pressure to declare.........................

Good for the Buckeyes program if he stays though.

How can anyone believe this right now?

Because he was very explicit. I think he tried to make it very clear that he won't be changing his mind. But that being said I don't believe it 100% right now. Plus the NBA is probably going to have a lockout next year which changes the decision for a lot of guys. I mean look at how the labor situation effected college football players decisions. The guy who was a lock for the number 1 pick decided to stay in college.

As someone who is fairly unbiased towards Ohio St., I think its a poor decision to decide to stay in school right now. I think it would be best to go work out for teams and gather info about where he is likely to be picked and maybe try and get a better feeling about how likely a lockout is. If he is going to be a top 5 pick I think it's best to go.

Or he could wait till next season and be the number 1 pick with a possible NCAA championship

Or he could get hurt and never play in the NBA again. Or just not be very good and end up as a mid round pick and give up a lot of money. I always think if you are a top 5 pick you go pro, if you are in mid to late lottery its more up in the air, and if you are late 1st or 2nd you wait another year (unless you feel you just had a career year that you aren't likely to repeat or you are in a situation where you and your family are poor and in need of money).

It's just my opinion, not saying it is right or wrong, just usually how I look at things.

I'm glad to see him stay. NBA needs to require players stay in college for at least two years.

Side note, I thought Ohio State was supposed to be scary this year... Sorry, couldn't resist.

I thought they were suppose to be scary this year? Sound like typical OSU/Big Ten over hyping to me.

Are you really? You'll love it here man.

But good for Sully. I'm glad to see him sticking around, it's rare to see a young star actually choose to stay in school. It's going to be a joy to watch him play again for another season.

This. I'm all for the kid staying, and I support him to no end, but I'll believe it when he's still in school after the April 24 deadline.
