High school standout Greg Oden said Wednesday he will play college basketball at Ohio State.
The 7-foot Oden and Lawrence North teammate Mike Conley announced in unison during a news conference at their high school that they would both play
for the Buckeyes, starting with the 2006-07 season. Oden, the national prep player of the year, was considered a possible No. 1 pick in next year's
NBA draft until the league changed its rules last week to require players to be at least one year out of high school before they can be drafted.
