Ohio State's CJ Walker, Kyle Young still weighing future plans
CJ Walker and Kyle Young aren’t thinking about the future just yet. With Ohio State playing well and the B1G and NCAA tournaments on the horizon, the two stars on the basketball floor are focused on the remainder of this season.
Then, in a few weeks, the two Buckeyes might start thinking about their plans in Columbus.
Both Walker and Young were asked about what their intentions were for the next basketball season. Would they utilize the NCAA’s additional year of eligibility to play at Ohio State during the 2021-22 season? That’s something they’re both still considering.
“It’s always a possibility, for sure, with the free year for COVID,” Walker said, per Eleven Warriors. “That’s obviously an option for me. That’s something my coaching staff and parents talk about frequently. As of right now, that’s not a decision I’ve made 100 percent. But yeah, I’ve been in college for a very, very long time.”
Young made a similar comment.
“I haven’t made a decision yet,” he said. “I’m waiting until after the season. Weigh out my options and go from there.”
Walker is averaging 9.2 points and 4.2 assists this season for the Buckeyes, playing over 29 minutes per game. Young is adding 8.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per contest while averaging 26.5 minutes per game.
Ohio State closes out the regular season with a home game against No. 4 Illinois on Saturday. It will then prepare for the B1G Tournament next week.
