Here's a current look at the scholarship situation for the Ohio State men's basketball team.

Teams are limited to 13 scholarships, but the 2021-22 season will be different. The NCAA awarded all players an extra year of eligibility during 2020-21, and any seniors who took advantage of the opportunity will not count against the limit for the following season.

The Buckeyes will have 14 players on scholarship next season and one available spot. Here's a look at how it all breaks down entering the 2021-22 season. This page will be updated anytime there is roster movement.

The Ohio State Buckeyes convene in a huddle during Sunday's NCAA Division I Big Ten conference basketball game against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on February 28, 2021. Iowa won the game 73-57.
