Ohio State Adds New Albany Freshman Braylen Nash To 2024-25 Roster As Preferred Walk-On

Ohio State added another member to its 2024-25 roster on Thursday when New Albany, Ohio, incoming freshman guard Braylen Nash (6-4) announced he will join the Buckeyes as a preferred walk-on next season. 

“Thank you Jesus!” Nash wrote in a Twitter post that announced he is joining the program, which featured a photoshopped image of him in a white Ohio State jersey. “All of his Glory! Go Buckeyes #committed AGTG #PWO.” 

Nash enters the program after leading New Albany to a 20-5 record and Ohio Capital Conference Ohio Division championship his senior season while averaging 17.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. His efforts allowed him to be named the OCC Ohio Player of the Year and a Division-I All-Ohio honorable mention selection. 

He also eclipsed the 1,000-point mark last season, becoming just the second player in New Albany boys’ basketball history to reach that total, and was one of 724 senior nominees nationally for the McDonalds All-American games. 

Nash, who also played wide receiver and quarterback on the Eagles’ football team, is the third walk-on on Ohio State’s roster, joining sophomore guard Colby Baumann and senior forward Owen Spencer. Both walk-ons scored a combined five points in 12 minutes of action last season. 

The addition of Nash does not affect Ohio State’s roster total. The Buckeyes still have one open roster spot remaining, which they will likely use on a forward or guard through the transfer portal.
