BOOM!!! Kentucky transfer and former five-star center Aaron Bradshaw has committed to the Buckeyes.

Ohio State basketball are again on the board in the transfer portal as Kentucky transfer Aaron Bradshaw commits to the Buckeyes after a successful official visit on April 13th. He chooses Ohio State over numerous major Power Five programs. Bradshaw was a five-star and ranked fifth in the class of 2023. He chose Kentucky over Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Oklahoma State, UCLA, and the G League. He was a McDonalds All-American and a semifinalist for the National High School Player of The Year.

In his freshman season, Bradshaw was sidelined for the first seven games of the Wildcats season due to a foot injury he suffered in the offseason. He struggled to see consistent minutes in a stacked Kentucky frontcourt, ultimately averaging 13.7 minutes per game and contributing 4.9 points per game. In his second game against Penn, he went 7-12 from the field and scored 17 points to go along with 11 rebounds. In Kentucky’s win against former head coach John Calipari’s new team Arkansas, he went a perfect 4-4 from the field and finished with 12 points in the Wildcats 111-102 victory.

Adding Bradshaw gives Felix Okpara another big man to help clean up the rebounds and locking down the paint. The New Jersey native also provides Jake Diebler with a more athletic offensive big man, which would draw defenders away from Okpara on the lower block due to Bradshaw being a threat on that end.
