COLUMBUS, Ohio — Asked to pinpoint the differences in the Ohio State men’s basketball program the past month, Micah Potter had a hard time coming up with an answer.
Not because the sophomore center couldn’t think of one aspect of the Buckeyes’ program that has changed under new head coach Chris Holtmann — but because he couldn’t think of one that hasn’t.
“Everything,” the 6-foot-9, 240-pound Potter finally answered on Thursday. “[The new coaching staff] got rid of everything and they started completely fresh. Now we have a nutritionist full-time — we hadn’t had that before. We have a strength coach, new coaches. They’re changing up the locker room — they’re changing everything.”
Potter, who averaged 4.1 points and 3.1 rebounds as a freshman, spent 20 minutes with reporters on Thursday detailing the new vibe that exists inside the walls of the Schottenstein Center this summer.
