Chatman at 6’4” is equally capable of being a creative scorer and passer at PG, or be an elite SG who makes at a very high percentage moving off of screens or off the dribble from the outside. Very athletic and can score at the rim. He continues to mature physically over the last year putting on 15 pounds of muscle and why he is a late bloomer skyrocketing up the recruiting rankings. His play over the Summer was top ten national level of play.
Also a very good rebounder and versatile defender that can guard 1 through 3 positions. Does not look to make the flashy play, but is all about making the smart efficient plays. Huge competitor that just wants to win. He said he is OK with however Coach Holtmann wants to use him, and his main goal as a Buckeye is to win.
He was all Buckeye after his dinner at Coach Holtmann’s house during early part of official visit. Loves the OSU coaches as they were number one reason for picking the Buckeyes. Also likes the close knit nature of the players and team.
He is at his best in the big moments of big games. Rare trait that the best if the best have. He demonstrated that ability in a few huge state Tiurnanent games in crunch time.
Might be so good in year one at OSU to be a one and done. Checks every box that the NBA Scouts look for. For now, let’s enjoy the huge get for the program!
