Keyshawn Woods just couldn’t say no to Chris Holtmann for a third time.

As a prep standout in the Charlotte area, Woods was recruited by Holtmann at Gardner-Webb before ultimately signing with Charlotte. When the 49ers parted ways with their coaching staff following Woods’ freshman season, he was recruited by Holtmann at Butler as a transfer but opted to sign with Wake Forest.

Now, after two seasons with the Demon Deacons, Woods took to Twitter on Tuesday night to announce his commitment to Holtmann’s program as a graduate transfer. After entertaining interest from more schools than he could name and praying on the situation after taking a few visits, Woods told The Dispatch that Ohio State was clearly the right fit for his final year of college.

 “They fit everything: the style of play, the way they’re going to play me, their weight training was really big for what I’m trying to do,” Woods said in a phone interview. “Everything that I was looking for in a school, they fit. They are coming off a great season and I just wanted to be a part of something really good and really special and I believe in what coach Holtmann was saying.”

As a graduate transfer, Woods will be immediately eligible and provide vital reinforcement for the Buckeyes at point guard, where only returning starter C.J. Jackson has any significant experience.

Last season, the 6-3, 205-pound guard averaged 11.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game for the Demon Deacons. He took an official visit to Ohio State during the weekend of April 14, then had an in-home visit from Louisville and an official visit to Virginia. He also took an unofficial visit to Clemson and an official visit to UMBC, now led by his former Charlotte coach, Ryan Odom.

Holtmann’s early interest, in particular during this recruiting process, made signing elsewhere for a third time hard to fathom.

“Yeah, it probably would’ve (been hard), because he’s a good man,” Woods said. “He was the first one to come down and see me and talk to me and tell me what he was looking for and what he thought about me and the situation.”

With the addition, the Buckeyes have a full roster for the upcoming season and are likely done adding players for this season. They were set to host Samford graduate transfer Christen Cunningham for an official visit starting Wednesday, but that visit has been canceled. It remains possible that the Buckeyes would add one more impact-type of conventional transfer player who would have to sit out a season.

For now, though, Woods appears to be the final piece of the puzzle for the Buckeyes as they aim to return to the NCAA Tournament.

“(My goal is) to win,” Woods said. “Win games, win the conference, make a run in the NCAA Tournament. I know as a fifth-year guy and a vet, I’ve got to do whatever coach Holtmann tells me to do to help him prepare the younger guys
