Oden & Conley Not Ready

Greg Oden and Mike Conley could very well wind up at Ohio State, but a published report in today's Indianapolis Star is premature and could even wind up being incorrect, according to Mike Conley Sr.

A published report in Friday's Indianapolis Star that Greg Oden and Mike Conley are headed to Ohio State is premature, according to Mike Conley Sr.

``The boys haven't verbally committed anywhere yet," Conley Sr. said. "They still like Ohio State and Wake Forest. Their plan all along was to make a decision shortly after the Collective Bargaining Agreement was agreed upon – and they haven't even had a chance to sit down with their high school coaches yet."

The Indianapolis Star said that a person close to Oden confirmed that the Lawrence North teammates would be committing to Ohio State. The Star also reached Oden's mother, Zoe, who said that no official decision has been made yet.

Conley Sr. reiterated the fact that Oden and Conley would attend college together, which basically leaves Ohio State and Wake Forest as the only two legitimate choices.
