Greg Oden is the poster child for prep basketball not just in the state of Indiana, but for the entire nation, simply put there isnt anyone or team for that matter that can stop Greg Oden of Lawrence North (Ind.) who possesses all the gifts and instincts that evoke memories of previous greats like Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Greg Oden will play for the East squad in the prestigious McDonald's All-American game and will certainly be the most watched performer at all times, with his calm demeanor and unselfishness on and off the court, Greg Oden will be the no.1 pick in the NBA draft whenever he chooses to apply for it, but first he will attend Ohio State University who is ranked ninth in the nation and just won their first Big Ten title since 1992, which means with the addition of Greg Oden and 4 other blue chip recruits that make up the country's top incoming class next season, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be defending Conference Champions and will have an even better squad mainly due to the fact that they have Greg Oden in the fold who will dominate from day one. Its easy to see that Greg Oden will play for the Ohio State Buckeyes for two seasons at the most, but we must also remember although that he will not be a professional for at least two more years, that he will still be one of the best players in the world.
