Ohio State men’s basketball 2021-2022 roster

 

The Ohio State basketball team will be active before you know it for the 2021-2022 seasons. Just like previous years there are new faces through the transfer portal and those who have come in from the prep ranks.

But it’s not all new faces. In fact, there is a lot of production returning from last year’s team that flirted with a Big Ten championship only to get bounced from the NCAA tournament in the first round by Oral Roberts.

The Buckeyes lost Duane Washington to the NBA, but returned Kyle Young unexpectedly as a “super senior”They took advantage of the additional year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the complete Ohio State men’s 2021-2022 basketball roster.
